    I have no clothes line or dryer.
    I use clothes horses, family of six and i have two clothes horses.

    I have ducted heating so one clothes horse is over the vent in my room and the other in the dining room,

    If the sun comes out i will move the clothes horses out to the back deck.

    Large sheets I can hang over bedroom doors in winter to dry inside.

    Clothes horses all year round. In summer I put them on the deck and in winter they are in our gigantic laundry.

    We only do two at the moment. Clothes in one, towels in the other. I don't wash linen weekly though! Ain't nobody got time for that!

    I use the undercover line mostly. Sometimes I'll venture out to the outside line. Only when it's not windy though because I don't use pegs (evil things). Smalls always go on the clothes horse.

    Ill use the dryer for baby clothes. Or to touch up the clothes if they don't dry inside due to the weather (constant rain!!)

    Line for everything. I have a great clothes air dryer for inside for the wet season.

    I don't want the expense of the dryer running.

    Why do you wash them separately? I do about 4loads a week. 2xclothes and 2xtowels and sheets. Everything gets put in together. I have an 8kg toploader (I found front loaders smaller so was washing more often). The only thing I wash separate is dps yard clothes if he has been in the shed.

    House of 4, two loads of washing and drying most weeks unless towels and sheets and then it's another 3 loads. Everything goes in the dryer bar some of DDs tops as target stuff now seems to shrink and DS school top. No clothes line and not allowed to hang washing outside so clothes horse lives in the bathroom.

    I dont own a dryer. I have a wood fire so in winter everything comes on the clothes airer and in summer outside on the line.

    mostly it gets hung on the line but occasionally I can't be farked hanging it out and bringing it in so I chuck it in the dryer and make sure I bring it before DH gets home and then it's my little secret
