No. Rainwater is softer and makes everything lovely.

No, it's quite nice to give it another rinse!

Hope not - DH left all the towels out last night and I can;t face having to wash them again - they are lovely and soft though!

God no! If I've not long put washing out, and it starts to rain I leave it (rush out like an idiot if it's been out there a while and it's nearly dry). I've left washing on the line for several days before now (not for a long time I hasten to add).

depends on whether you live in a city or not.Rainwater can be quite dirty.
Personaaly i never bother rewashing as i think it is a waste of energy.

So you put the washing out the night before. Oddly always wait til the morning to do it. Not sure quite why.

If you use cloth nappies it's positively encouraged to leave them in the rain as it softens them grin
