#jeudi confession: I won’t miss hanging socks!


These IKEA hangers are what we’ve been using for the past year to air dry our socks & undies! Placed over an air vent, they dry within 12 hours. Outside, usually an hour or two does the trick!

Our washing machine is on its last leg (literally! It jumps about a foot on each spin cycle and can be heard from the street! The machine is balanced but the innards aren’t). So after 12 yrs with the same machine, and over 14 months of living dryer-free, we bought a new washer and dryer this week.
I don’t plan on drying everything, all the time, but I must confess, I won’t miss hanging everyone’s socks! Stay tuned for what this means for my life as a dryerless dame!
