Thank you for the reminder, I am going to put the laundry on. I love darkened on clothes. grin

I put my washing out at 10pm last night, was dry and ready to be brought in by 8am so I was able to put the load out that washed overnight.
I put my bedding out at 5.30pm today , by 6.30pm it was dey and back on the bed!

shock my washing has only ever got darked on by accident when I've forgotten it blush

What happens to it overnight? I thought the lack of sun prolonged dampness and therefore damage to the fibres from being too moist (moist, great word grin). Is that right? I don't know. Possibly only relevant to natural fibres.

Mine goes out most nights smile I don't have time in the morning before work.
Mind you this evening's load is dry already!

I pegged out 20 minutes ago. It's the only advantage of hot nights, doubling my drying opportunities grin

Mine goes out nearly every night through the summer.

I'm sure my neighbours hate me lowering the tone on the area but I don't care.

Love love love the expression OP! grin

My thinking is that if I get the washing out now, I can have a lie in tomorrow. grin

It's going to be 17 degrees here tonight. I put out a load at 6pm and it's dry so am swapping for more. It'll be dry in a few hours.

Yep, just put mine out too. Probably the only night of the year, the summer we've been having.

Plenty of times I put washing out at night to be darkened on. grin

Darked on, matching pegs, whatever next? You'll be telling me you iron too

<clutches pearls>

Ha I have been wondering whether to put mine out overnight but was a little afraid of it being darked on. As you're all doing it, I will too [sheep].

Farmmummy Mon 18-Jul-16 20:55:39

Haha just come in from putting mine out too (and even worse my pegs don't match!)

goodenoughmum88 Mon 18-Jul-16 20:56:40

YES! One job down for tomorrow morning! Although it will add to the pile of washing that needs putting away.....

dudsville Mon 18-Jul-16 20:56:50

Ladies, I left mine out a while back. First time ever. And I can say my clothes seem to have survived. I'm envious you've had the foresight to get yours out. Will do this tomorrow!

Herecomesthebride Mon 18-Jul-16 20:59:05

Never leave mine out! Spiders drag their willies all over it grin

My neighbour saw me darking my washing and now does it too. New recruit. <preen>

IHateDoors Mon 18-Jul-16 21:04:04

Spiders do do that, it's well known grin

tigerdriverII Mon 18-Jul-16 21:04:17

Even better if it gets rained on: DM calls that scent "rainsweet".

Lolimax Mon 18-Jul-16 21:06:00

DH is pegging out as I type and tonight's gym kit is in a quick wash and will join it all in 14 minutes. No shame in my house!
