Help! I Don’t Have A Dryer

Dear FlyLady,

Today I tried old shampoo in the toilet while doing swish & swipe. It was really shining! Great suggestion! I will use old shampoo & bubble bath and then toss those bottles that irritated me.

I have a question for you. Since I have a 23 month old boy and a husband that works in an office, we always have a lot of laundry. I don’t have a drier and now that it’s winter it’s so horrible because clothes don’t get dried very easily. I live in a small house and it’s very difficult to find a place for wet laundry.

Please, help me! I thank you in advance. Thanks for all you are doing for me.

Dear Betty,

People can survive without a dryer. My son’s Grandmother Elizabeth never had a dryer. She used a clothes line outside even in the winter months. When the weather was bad she would hang everything on coat hangers and place them in the doorways.

Actually it is really good for our health to put more moisture into the air of our homes. The dryness of heated air irritates our sinuses.

My son and his wife air dry all their children’s clothes because it keeps them from shrinking. Justin put something similar to this on their laundry room wall. It could go in a bathtub or in a closet if you don’t have a laundry room.  A way to get clothing to dry faster is to run a small box fan on them or a ceiling fan.

Check out this Life Hack.

Doing a load of laundry each evening and hanging it up before bed will keep you from having wet laundry hanging all over the house during the day.

I air dry most of my clothes too. I hang them on my shower curtain rod in my bathroom. Some of my clothes need to be ironed so I do it while they are wet and this helps to dry them. If they are not that wrinkled I stretch them on the bias and hang them up. No ironing needed.

You are saving lots of money by not having a dryer. Setting up a routine will keep you from having to dunk under clothes in the door ways all day long. See you are not alone when it comes to not having a dryer. Sometime we choose to not use one.
