I dried my bathroom towels and tub mat on the wooden rack I have and oh my gosh, the texture is unreal. It is like some sinister textile-meets-alchemy experiment, what with the turning of cotton into sandpaper.
So here is the thing: erecting a clothesline in our yard is undoable. Even if we had the space, we live on a corner, where one street is fairly busy. The only place where I can dry laundry and not have it covered in construction dirt (this is the week our contractor's cutting terra cotta tiles) and atmospheric schmutz is in the garage. Clearly, something's missing because I do not end up with fresh laundry, but fresh forms of early morning torture.
Any suggestions on ways to make sure my towels dry into towels and not organic brillos? Or should I start looking for other, compact items that will fit on my drying rack instead?
Tell me. Or tell me about your ongoing reduce/reuse/recycle efforts.
