I have been away for a few days in Melbourne for a combination of work and pleasure and arrived back late this afternoon to the second consecutive day of wild summer thunderstorms. Luckily, we have not had the worst of it – just some much needed rain. The humidity is off the scale and everything is damp.
I have done one load of washing and the second load is in the machine. There is no point in hanging it on the line in this weather – even though it is under the verandah. The clothes will just hang limply in the damp air, so it is time to resurrect the indoor clothes airer and dehumidifier.
Here is the airer set up in my spare/sewing room. It is a rotary one and the outside lines are high enough that I can hand jeans/trousers or even sheets on them.
The load of washing is hung and there is plenty of space for a second load.
I will have the dehumidifier running overnight in the closed room and the washing will be dry in the morning.
