It's actually yesterday's load that I brought in overnight, it wasn't fully dry so I hung it back out this morning. I hadn't noticed until just now that it's pissing it down.

I'm fucked if I can be bothered to get it all in and hang it all out again. It'll dry eventually, won't it?

AIBU?

yes once the rain stops it will dry. i do this at times. usually because im not here to fetch it in when it rains so just think when i get home that there is no point fetching it in now, may as well leave it to dry when the rain stops.

I've done this today too. I've got no more room in the house, and I'd rather leave it out there than have to have it inside. Only towels and the husbands shirts anyway. grin

I do, mainly when I have no more room in the house too. Although looking at the weather forecast its likely to be out for the rest of the sodding week sad

I'm afraid I rewash everything if it's been in the rain. Just one of my 'things' I guess.

And before I get comments about wasting water, I piss in the shower.smile

If its UK weather, it'll dry eventually. Happens to me all the time. Check your weather app maybe. If storms are due for several days in a row, then you might as well get it in, if not, leave it!

I do as long as it's not my best clothes and in the Summer as they dry eventually anyway

I love the smell of washing when it's been rained on and dried in the sun.

PortiaCastis Tue 28-Jun-16 18:43:39

I never hang mine out, just put it in the dryer. Live right next to the sea and gulls love clean washing

I now have that song in my head and I don't think that I can take it, 'cause it took so long to bake it, and I'll never have that recipe agaaaaaaaaain!

Yanbu. If it's not needed urgently it'll dry off eventually.
