    A clean fresh bed is wonderful. Nothing like sunshine and fresh air.

    Love the smell of sheets and/or other clothing hung outside. I think I will hang outside today too; beautiful day here as well. Thanks for the inspiration.

    Nothing like line-dried bedding, clothes. Envy you, as I'm now an apartment
    dweller. Ugh!

    I would love to hang out sheets but the back yard is a mud hole with all the melting snow. I love the smell of line dried sheets. You can't get it in a bottle of softener.

    I like to hang out sheets and quilts. The pollen gets to me, especially in the Spring months. I may wash bed sheets today and hang them out. It is in the 70s here today.

    That's a great idea - I'll have to quick throw something in the washer to do that. I'll have to put my boots on though - need to go through mud & snow remnants to get to it. :D

    Run sheets thur the dryer for a few minutes, this removes pollen. Works for me.

    I hung out laundry Thursday and today! I had a lot of clothing that we wore skiing the beginning of the week that had to be line dried anyhow so the warm weather was great. I wish I would have had time to strip the bed and wash all the bedding!

    That's not fair....it was so cold and windy here today. I can't wait to hang laundry up outside. All the blankets and sheets will be done as soon as I can. I love how fresh it smells.

    I hang my clothes outside in the Spring and Summer also. Unfortunately, the snow is still about 3 feet high in the back yard, even with the thaw we had for the past week and yesterday, it was so darn cold outside, the dog didn't even want to go out. Good thing you washed yesterday because in Wisconsin today, it'll be cold. Edie

    Now this is a coincidence. My friend and I were talking about the very thing the other day. We both need to rig up a clothesline in the back yard. We remember the wonderful smell we got from the fresh air. Bath towels, too. Hang them out until barely damp and then toss them in the dryer to make them softer and fluffier BUT they have that WONDERFUL smell! Also, saves on your electricity!

    IU would love to hang out my bedding too. I used to do it all the time and I could not figure out why my allergies were so bad. The doc said that I was sleeping on pollen all the time. Dryer only for me.

    I go past an Amish house and she hangs her clothes out all the time, but her line runs from the top of the barn to the house. It makes me laugh everytime I see it.
