"Necessity is the mother of invention" or "how to dry clothes"
Our laundry room has not been finished yet, so I don't have a washer or dryer. Last week I went over to my mother-in-law's house, and she was nice enough to let me use her washer and dryer. But I was over there all night just to wash two loads of clothes. So this week I thought I would go to the local laundromat and get several loads done at the same time. There was just one problem - I didn't know that the laundromat closes at 8:00 PM.... and I got there at 7:20 PM.
So I washed two loads, and brought them home to dry. Since our family room isn't finished either, the ladders were already in there. I grabbed two boards to lay between the two. I had lots of hangers with clips for hanging pants, so here's my solution on how to dry clothes without a clothesline or a dryer.
Where there's a will, there's a way. Or, necessity is the mother of invention.
PS - the plumber is coming tomorrow to look at what needs to be done in the laundry room - and we're buying a new washing machine and laundry tub this weekend. We already have a dryer - so we just need to get it hooked up to vent outside, and I'll be able to do laundry at home again!
