Tippy Tuesday

Like I said in the previous post, I am heading to Nashville but I didn't want to leave you hanging for your Tuesday tip.

So since beautiful weather is here or just around the corner here is a great tip. I've been doing it for years and it works great for me. I hang my clothes on the line. I don't fuss with the washcloths or under clothes because that takes too much time or I just don't want to broadcast my entire wardrobe to the whole neighborhood. Oh, you say you don't like rough towels or stiff jeans, then do this...when nearly dry put them in the dryer for 15 minutes. I think the rough towels help to exfoliate your skin so I like them that way. Nothing beats fresh smelling laundry.

One thing that you need to watch for are neighbors that like to burn leaves and such. Now that stinks so if that happens just bring them in and use the dryer. I've saved a lot of $$$$$ this way. A secret( I didn't even own a dryer till 2001) I use a drying rack for the rest.

Thank you for stopping by my blog. We are still trying to get to the bottom of the fish mystery. I love to hang clothes on a clothesline. I have one in my basement for the winter and the unmentionables. My mother would always hang the sheets on one outside line and my father's work clothes on the other outside line so the neighbors wouldn't see those things they didn't need to see. It makes me chuckle today!

Gram thanks for stopping by, come back anytime. My mom would hang clothes very orgainzed all the socks and all the whites together and so on, she didn't want anybody to see a messy clothes line.

I don't like rough towels even if she does so I'm glad she at least puts them in the dryer for a few minutes.
