In the summer, it goes in an instant – off with the laundry rack on the balcony or in the garden, and already a little later, pants, socks, and T-shirts are dry again. But what do you do in winter, when the laundry has to dry indoors, and you don’t have a dryer or don’t want to use one for the sake of the environment and your wallet?
Do not, under any circumstances, place the clothes horse in a room without windows. Because that’s how mold can develop, how to avoid this. You should also by no means choose a bathroom or kitchen because there is already a lot of humidity in the room due to showering and cooking. Large, heated rooms that can be well-ventilated are best. Living rooms or, if available, the boiler room is ideal for drying laundry.
Freshly washed laundry still contains water. If you hang it in a closed room, the humidity rises. It can accumulate on the walls and behind furniture and lead to mold. Therefore, it is advisable to use a so-called hygrometer to keep an eye on the air humidity. However, the optimal moisture differs from room to room because the temperature influences the humidity. Read here what you should consider when airing in winter.
Keep a distance.
The room and distance between the hung clothes must be balanced so the air can circulate well. Shirts or jackets can also be hung to dry with a hanger. Do not place the clothes rack directly next to delicate furniture.
Use a high-speed wash cycle if the laundry allows it (never for delicates) because the laundry will already be much drier when it comes out of the machine. And thus, it also dries faster.
