Air Drying on a Clothesline Has Some Seasonal Disadvantages

Air drying clothes on an outdoor clothes line has disadvantages as well as advantages. In the summer there is sun bleaching and rotting. In the winter there is discomfort for you, freezing and slow drying for you clothes.

In The Summer There Is Sun Bleaching

The sun does a great job of 'sun bleaching' your hair in the summer, doesn't it? Your clothes hanging all day on the clothesline are no different. Leave a piece of clothe outside that you don't need, especially a dark, rich color, and see how well it matches a similar piece left inside. In just a few days the one left outside will be lighter. Over the space of a year, the same thing happens to your clothes.

In The Summer There Is Sun Rotting

The rotting thing: think ultraviolet and how it interacts with drapes even through the windows of your house. Think of the awnings you have seen that are in tatters. And the hotter the sun, the faster it goes due to the breakdown of fibers and dye. You are not saving money or being green if you have to buy new clothes. Now, a dryer does heat the clothes but does not do the sun damage they get outdoors from the ultraviolet radiation as well as the pollution in the air.

In The Winter There Is Discomfort

Does this discomfort even need to be mentioned? The process of hanging wet clothes outside in the cold winter is good exercise for you, but if your hands are at all arthritic the cold and wet will be a problem. My mother still tells stories about how her hands would ache from doing laundry in the days before dryers.

Two More Issues in The Winter

Also, in the cold winter, the clothes take longer to dry, sometimes several days depending on how cold or windy it is.

And one last issue: the destructive action of the freezing and thawing of the water on the fabric of the cloth as they hang outside. While this is not well documented (who has really studied this one directly!?) it is easy to extrapolate the effect of what freezing and thawing does to any other material.

Also, in the cold winter, the clothes take longer to dry, sometimes several days depending on how cold or windy it is.

Conclusion

Now, I don't want to just play the Devil's Advocate, but I think it would be beneficial for some who would advocate air drying on a clothesline to think all the way through what that really entails in a broader context. There is more to green than saving energy at home, especially when it comes to drying clothes whose replacement is part of the green solution. Think this over and give me some feedback.
