A while back (maybe last year sometime) I shared on Facebook a project that I got Mr P to help me with. I realised today that I have never shared it on the blog! Are you ready for this? It changed my life & it could change yours too! We hung the sides of our old baby crib (no need for that anymore!) from the ceiling in our laundry to use as an inside clothesline on rainy days. Just like today!
I went to the fabric shop this morning & I always wash any new fabrics before sewing. Now they are hanging from the rails! Hopefully it won’t take too long for them to dry because I have a few quilts that need to be finished & some super funky PJ’s to make! I have also hung up some of the winter woollies & when they dry inside, they stay super soft. Our hot water system is in the laundry so it is great to speed up drying time. I do not have a clothes dryer & I do not need one!
As you can see, we just used hooks in the ceiling & chains to hold the crib rails up. I use this all the time. School clothes that need to be dried for the next day, hang wet shoes above the hot water system to dry, put washed pillows along the top to dry, & if I do a last minute load of washing before bed I don’t even need to go outside!
This system has changed my life. I am no longer a slave to my washing. Even my house thanks me because it smells as beautiful as the fabric softener that I use!
