I am new to this, but as I am saving any way I can to get out of debt ASAP I bought a washing line. ( saved £7 this week by not using the tumble dryer)

So do I peg out my washing tonight.

News flash. Your neighbours don't care about your washing. They seriously could not care less about your washing if they tried. Your washing is deeply boring and mundane to your neighbours. It is even more boring than their own washing ... and that is saying something, because their own washing bores them rigid.

When was the last time you noticed your neighbours' washing? Never, right? Unless you're Hyacinth Bucket, of course. In which case, it probably fascinates you. But then you have way bigger problems than just the rights and wrongs over washing left out overnight.

Peg it out. Leave it out. Dance naked amongst it whilst howling at the moon. Your neighbours do not care.

Your neighbours do not care.

Unless your neighbours are some of the posters on this thread.

We live in a flat and we aren't allowed to dry washing in communal areas including our own terraces/balconies! It's frustrating as the sun we've had would have done a lovely job on the reuseable nappies. Enjoy your pegging all!

Hawaiian: I don't leave washing out overnight as there has been no need to. Wash in the morning, peg out by 11am and it'll be dry by bedtime.'

Amazingly I have other things I need to do in the morning and I suppose one or two others are the same.

With the heels pointing the same way?

I'm willing to lay a small wager that you iron your knickers.

Well of course the heels have to hang the same way. EBearhug is perfectly correct - it's the law.

I had high hopes for you up until that comment cozietoes.

I must point out that just because heels are hung pointing the same way it does not mean that the hanger of the socks is anal about ironing! I don't iron socks, underwear or even bedding (shhh don't tell anyone).

I have about 6 loads to do... you can't get all that done in one day!

Soz OrangeLily-missed your question.
Why did he complain? Because, apparently, hanging your washing out on the line is against the rules of the flats we live in.
He said "Imagine if we ALL hung our washing out?!
I imagined. I still don't get it!
