It looks like Autumn is finally here and I hate not being able to dry my washing outside! I am left with piles of Duvets/sheets/pillow cases off 3 beds and I don't know what I am going to do with it all (apart from leave it until tomorrow, to see if the sun comes out wink).

What do you do throughout the Autumn/Winter months??

fold carefully and hang on airers
near radiators - or in fact on radiators
also have one of these

I fold twice length ways and hang over doors. I have no tumble drier and a duvet cover takes about a day to dry.

I don't mind doing bedding it's bloomin jeans that bother me they take days to dry!

I hang my bedding over doors too if i'm not putting the dryer on.

I am very sad and try to co-ordinate washing the bedding with dry days so I can dry it. Yes, I actually check the weather forecast blush Failing that the tumble drier.

I try to be good and not use the dryer. I am fortunate in that our house is on 4 floors so I have loads of bannisters (3 flights of stairs) to hang them all on.

Mine was on the line today from 9 til 2. Fetched it then because it started to rain, then on the airer til 5, in the dryer for 40 minutes and is now on the bed (just). The effort of hanging it out and then the airer saved me what, 20 minutes drying time? Not sure it was worth it TBH.

i have a really high washing line and so long as it isnt actually raining it dries almost anything in just a few hours...

it seems to always catch the sunahine and breeze whic i guess helps

i also check the forecast to determine exactly which day i wash my bedding

after a few hours its dryish, and i then leave it in the airing cupboard over night and it is bone dry by morning

airing cupboard?

bannister - just wash one bed at a time

NomDePlume Tue 14-Oct-08 18:52:16

Dryer or banisters

airing rack like this, but only ever do one bed at a time and have 2 sets of linen for each bed so doesn't really matter if it takes a couple of days to dry.

very ~ I have one of those airers as well smile. Takes a full load of washing as well as big enough to do bedding.

Mostly I put bedding in the tumbler if I can't peg out, one of the few things I don't seem to shrink.

I hang them over the curtain poles with the windows open, dries them a treat especially on a breezy day.
