Get it out there. I tend to even in winter. Just to give it some air...rain not withstanding.

Absolutely. If there's a bit of a breeze it'll dry even in winter.

It’s just getting to the start of prime pegging time. A big down jacket and a pair of ski mittens and you’ll be right enough. Anyone can dry washing in July

I got a line of whites just about dry before the rain started this afternoon. Wife a big batch of colours dry yesterday

It’s the thrill of the skill at this time of year - out and back in dry before any rain is due.

Bit of wet one here today but better tomorrow so it will be out

It will not dry in winter. Tried it over and over. Professor Ti Mi Linedaawn from San Francisco University's recent study refers.

Got something to say?
