We have high pressure settled over us at present and that is bringing us glorious sunshine! It streams in the window of this south facing spare room, and we are drying the laundry up there at the moment, on an assortment of airers. The window is open ever so slightly, and so is the bathroom window next door. That allows for a good airflow and prevents any problems with condensation.
So this is what the room looks like in the sun...
and this is with the washing in situ. The FH made the two wooden airers years ao and the little one in the middle is an Argos investment. I am bitterly regretting letting the EFG take the other one of those to Aberdeen, and I should have just given her some cash to buy one when she arrived. They are extremely useful, and no longer on sale, sadly. Once I had mastered the art of pegging items onto the little airer as if it were a washing line, I could hang much more up. Between them, the three airers will hold two loads of washing.
Items dry under this arrangement very quickly. Towels are folded up and put straight into the linen cupboard in the corner of the room, and items that don't require ironing are folded and put into the airing cupboard. Ironing is put into a basket which lives on the bed as it dries and then ironed when I have a basket load.
Soon the weather will warm up, and I will progress to hanging out in the verandah. I confess to be desperately looking forward to spring and summer days when I can put the laundry out on the proper outside washing line and it will come in, beautifully scented with fresh air!
Not a tumble drier in sight and quite a saving on the electricity by making use of the solar power of the sun. I would always recommend a south-facing house - we rejected many in our last search for a house because of their aspect!
