As any of my family and friends will attest, I love to hang laundry outside. It saves money, but most of all it is very enjoyable for me, and the fresh scent that fills the entire house when I bring the laundry in, is amazing! Here is some advice I would love to share about 'Getting The Hang Of It', enjoy hanging your laundry outside on the clothesline.
Right away you may already have given up trying to hang your heavy rugs on the clothesline. Well don't give up, and try using a couple of trouser hangers. The common clothespins are way too small for hanging anything heavy.
When hanging T-shirts, put them on plastic hangers not metal ones! Clip the shirts at the shoulder seams, this will prevent them from blowing off the hangers.
After placing the shirt on the hanger, grab it by the shoulders-hanger and all-and shake. No ironing required, the shirt stretches longways and the neck remains the original size. No more stretched out T-shirts!
You have spent a lot of money on your dresses. If you hang dresses on the clothesline by the side seam from the hem to the shoulder seam the drip dry will dry perfectly without needing ironing, especially the dark cottons. And...they will be wrinkly free enough to wear out for a dinner date.
When you hang out your bedding, try hanging your pillow cases with the open end up.
Then when you are ready to bring the clothes in from the outside clothesline, you can put all of the little things such as socks, wash cloths, and handkerchiefs in the pillow cases. You will not have to worry about making a trail of clothes into the house! This comes in especially handy in case of a sudden rain shower!
Yes there is a trick to hanging sheets and blankets so they won't wear out. Hang your sheets and blankets lengthwise on the line with the selvage edges together and the fold hanging down.
The top of the sheet (which is the one that turns back over the blanket) is clear of pin marks, and wrinkles (from holding the sheet to the line) are tucked under the mattress...therefore, they do not show. The rest of the sheet is very smooth and even.
Now when your sheets wear out, they wear out all over instead of just through the middle where the clothesline gave them pressure, plus the wear in the middle from sleeping.
You can use this method for dish towels and baby blankets so the edges won't fray.
Now next time the sun is shinning and the temperature is above freezing, and there is a nice breeze, try saving yourself some money and go outside get some fresh air and hang your laundry on the clothesline, you will be happy you did!
Le sac longchamp curé de Remiremont était le supérieur principal de la léproserie. Les offrandes de la chapelle de la Madelaine, du Vendrcdi Saint, du lendemain de Pâques et du sac longchamp pas cher jour de Sainte-Madelaine, lui appartenaient. Les autres offrandes faites pendant l'année étaient laissées pour le profit de la maison. Le maître de la Madelaine devait au curé , à son marguillier et au maître d'école , lorsqu'ils venaient célébrer le lundi de Pâques et le jour de la S'e-Madelaine, outre la marande de la veille , le longchamp sac dîner consistant en un pain de deux sous , une quarte de vin , un jambon, une andouille, une pièce de lard salé, une pièce de bresil (viande fumée), un fromage frais , des pois et des fêves cuites à l'eau en leurs gousses.

Great tips. It's too cold for us to hang anything outside, but I do have to hang some clothes in the basement after washing so these tips will still help!
