A. Do a total rewash
B. Do a rinse and spin
C. Don't rewash and hang up inside/tumble dry
D. Leave it there until it stops raining and it dries where it is

As you can probably guess I've left my washing out and it's rained

E. Not have to consider this because I NEVER LEAVE WASHING OUT OVERNIGHT.

I just leave it out until it's dry. Sometimes I bring it in and dry it indoors. It depends how bad the rain is.

Depends. If it’s forecast to be dry leave it out.

If not being it in and hang indoors or tumble.

If it's nice weather I'd leave it out to dry again. It'll still be clean and smell nice as long as it's not been left damp for ages.

D It smells lovely.

B because the rain can often wash muck and pollutants out of the air, which ends up on the clothes. I live in a city though.
Also they are often absolutely sodden and will take much longer to dry.

Not worried about the rain but as it's been Darked on I'd probably F. set fire to it.

I have left it out by accident. D was fine.

Leave it there until it is dry/has dried enough to put on rack inside. Would only rinse and spin if it was going to rain for days more.

D....I do this fairly often!!
