Dry Clothing on Hangers

When drying your laundry outdoors, instead of using pegs, hang as much washing on clothes hangers as possible. Separate the hangers using pegs to stop them gravitating together.

Using hangers in this way has 4 advantages:

  1. Your clothes stay in good shape.

  2. You can fit far more on the washing line.

  3. You can bring your washing in much more quickly if it starts to rain.

  4. Once dry, anything that doesn't need ironing is immediately ready to hang straight in the wardrobe.

Also those peggy hangers that are meant for your smalls can also be used for larger items such as small towels and pillow cases. This also frees up space and helps to bring your washing in quickly

I have been doing this myself, for quite a while. It really is faster when bringing the laundry in, and I can hang many things right in the closet.


Laundry is drudgery to me, so anything that makes it easier is welcome! During the winter or bad weather I do the same when drying things over the tub.

My problem with that is it leaves shoulder marks from the hangers.

In response to comments about drying on hangers, I ALWAYS hang shirts, t-shirts, sweaters, etc. inside out and never use wire hangers. Trying to get the shoulder puckers out is almost impossible if you hang them right side out. Also, I never dry heavier sweaters on hangers. Throw them over your shower curtain rod, or clothes line.

I use ha gears that have been crocheted on to hang our good shirts on. I dont have a clothes line, so I hang them on an extra, empty shower curtain rod.


Ive also hung them on the shower curtain rod. Depends on how many thing to hang up. I also hang my leggings on there too.

It all depends on what type of hangers you use. I try to use those wide rounded suit hangers for jumper/sweaters to keep them in shape

Hang tops inside out on hangers so when you put the item on, the pointy shoulders will be down.

Search amazon or eBay for wind proof clotheslines. Theyre usually around $5-$10 from us sellers, or as cheap as a dollar if you wait for it to be mailed from China. They are a plastic rope type clothesline that has hangers slots made into it.


Put your shirts on hangers and hang into slots. Only in very violent winds will your clothing end up on the ground.m.ebay.com/.../182085422765?epid=544930211&hash...
