There is a very good reson the topic starter Chris Saenz excluded out solar outside line drying.
AND virtually excluded out next to woodstove racked drying.
My wife is the still full time working one here. So I DO most of the laundry.
A typical basket of washed, rung-out wet clothing will run about 40-60 pounds (18-27 kg). Depending on the size of the basket and the fabric contnet of the clothing.
This will sun/forced heat-dryer down to just 15-18 pounds (7-8 kg).
The weight difference is all wet waters!!
Very easy then to calculate just how much heat energy range you will need to vaporize and blow-away all of that.
And although indide house drying MAY be OK for some mid-continental frozen down dry-dry folk for some of the time in no sun-winter. Even YOU folks will over humidify your houses for months in late winter/early spring.
Inside house hung-open clothes drying is just so very 19th century! A time of in-house made tuberculosis’s, phnomoia’s and such.
Yeah a real “fun” cough-cough century. With crying shame child mortality rates.
Really? Want to go back to ONLY horses as the primary personal transportation? Wonderful manure for the vegi’s growing, eh-yah. Horrid diseases human transmission spreading flies and worms problems!
Come’on. Step up to a real 21st century challenge.
I am out of this challenge as I am already a Lifetime member.
