RE: [hreg] Using A/C compressor to dry clothes
- Another effective way to dry clothes outside in an inepensive clothes rack from
that store (W-M) and I also use my patio furniture. Since my husband is back home from the assisted living place, I have LOTS of laundry daily and this certainly helps my utility bill.Joyce Lattimore_

If you mount it on your garage wall, near your washer you can hang your underwear and strapy tops without using any clothes pins. Just slide them on the shaped wires where the shoes go, and that's it. Since it sticks out of the wall a bit you can hang clothes behind it to support several loads. They are easy to find in garage sales and second hand shops. Since we recycle..... ... that is.... With the heat on the garage it dries in no time. Since no clothes pins were used when you go to pick up the clothes you can do it in a minute! I have 2 of them and I love them! Evelyn

The only time it take longer to dry is when it is actually overcast, no direct sun, and very little breeze. It might take 2-3 hours (heavy cotton items such a jeans take a little longer). Haven't measured exactly as I am off working on other things while the sun and breeze do their work :) Ahh, the wonderful aroma of sun dried sheets :) :)

Subject: Re: [hreg] Using A/C compressor to dry clothesThe rest of the world where people do not have such amenitiers of Washers and Driers, uses the old way people have existed for millenea, drying clothes on clotheslines, in the open air under the sun. Sun not only dries, but the UV component in the sunlight kills most of the bacteria in the clothes or anything else.Bashir A.

- One of the members of our Low Carbon Diet class said she hangs
clothes inside to dry. That provides the added benefit of
humidifying the house a little. A good thing to try for people who
haven't had luck drying outside. I myself, like Lunce, love those
ozone smelling sheets!
