I try not to wash every single day, but nonetheless, there is a lot of washing going on in this house. Two school children, a cloth-nappied baby and a husband who works hard outdoors makes for one big clothes basket (or drawer in our case). I need to put on a full load each wash because we rely solely on tank water out here. For the first time ever since we built almost two years ago we have three full 25,000 litre tanks. This is quite unusual for us as we live in a rather dryish area. Last year we had to buy water several times.
I don't own a dryer. With just a little extra work, I can always manage to get the clothes out to line dry. If it is raining my house looks like one giant clothes horse, but it is just a little inconvenience.
Daniel built me an old fashioned clothes line last year. It fit's a lot of washing and I just love the way it looks.
Sometimes I even enjoy hanging out the washing.
