    I Need opinions/options and input please. :) What's your set up for line drying and what would you change if you don't like it. What do you like about it? How can you make it more efficient? Thanks bunches.

    ~So I'm trying to save a bit of money by air drying clothes. I used to use an indoor rack when I had just one child. When #2 came along there was no room to set up the rack anymore so I dried outside. Unfortunately #2 has bad allergies so I started to use the dryer 99% of the time. We're still...

    I live in Florida. My hubby put up a nice clothes line for me today. I've been asking for one for a while. I just put up the first load. Never done this before, and I'm strangely excited about it. I just don't like the idea of paying to dry the clothes in the dryer, and then paying more to...

    Our electric bill took a good hike again so Dh and I decided to build the pvc drying racks the other night to try to save a bit more on the electric usage. The most convenient place for the racks is up on the landing of the second floor. Our second floor is unheated as it is an ancient old...

    Have any of you ever dried any meats? Now, I am very aware of beef jerky. I have dried cooked hamburger (hamburger rocks). But, have any of you ever dried other meats? I have canned some meats like chicken and ham and some beef. But I am trying to venture on some dried meats. :shrug2: I...

    I've spoken before about how I have a living room with a balcony and that's where I dry my clothes in the winter, now here's a pic so you can see what I mean. I have 3 racks, newest one is my fav (middle one) it's from my MIL's home and she gave it to me this year. It's a nice old wooden (boy...

    Dry sunny day with a nice breeze is making this a great day to hang my laundry outdoors. I had turkey's gobbling in the woods behind the house cheering me on as I hung 3 loads, lol. I ran out of room on the line and ran out of clothespins so some towels are hanging over the garden fence. You...

    Okay, I been reading these threads about dehydrators long enough now. I have to try this out. I just dug out my dehydrator. Last time I used it was about 15 yrs ago plus. It is el cheapo model. It's a SWEDA. It has 4 trays, all with the small openings. No fruit leather trays. I don't know...
  14. Question and Answer
    I have been trying to dry my laundry without using the dryer as much as possible. The problem is that I don't have a clothesline. I have a rack - one of those wooden ones that folds down flat. It holds about 3/4 of a load, with the rest getting hung on hangers on the shower curtain rod. So one...

    Hi there, I am thinking for a while about drying furits (apples, pineapples, apricots) and vegetables. Even to dry tomatoes would be much cheaper, then to buy them, they cost a fortune. Did anyone dry fruits and vegetables? Is it possible to dry them in the oven or it would be wiser to invest...

    I did not get to my soybeans before they started drying out in the garden. I don't think they can be frozen as is. I can't bear the idea of having to use all that produce as just seed. Some seed is needed for next year of course, but I'd like to try and dry the soybeans to use for later. Any...
  17. Question and Answer
    Hello everyone! I'm new to the forum and I have a question about line drying towels. For those who dry their towels outside on a clothes line, how do you keep them from feeling stiff? I tried this today ~ used vinegar as a fabric softener ~ but the only towels that didn't get stiff were my...

    do you have? I just bid on a metal wall one from ebay. I used to have a wooden fold up one, but it broke, and I can't seem to find any sturdy ones out there.

    I am so, so, so excited I haven't used my dryer in 3 days!! I am hanging my clothes and towels up on hangers and a drying rack in the basement. We don't have a clothes line so I have to hang them all over the basement, on some wires and cables too!!! LOL!! Anyway, I haven't used the dryer...

    I'm sure this will sound like a silly tip but over the past year of spackling and sheetrocking here its saved my hair from breaking off all over the place. cover hair with plastic (reuse one of those grocery bags you got still stuffed somewhere) and tie it up good, then cover completely and tie...
