How to Hang Up Clothes to Dry

What you need:

  • Your wet clothes/linen
  • Pegs (if on an outside line)
  • Washing basket
  • Washing line / clothes airer


  1. Remove clothes from the washing machine
  2. Put them in a basket, making sure it is not too heavy for you to carry safely
  3. Hang items on your line / airer so they have the ability to dry properly and effectively
  4. Some clothing may not be suitable for being hung up outside in the sun (e.g. lycra) so hang these inside if possible
  5. If outside, secure them with pegs so they do not blow away onto the ground
  6. Take your clothes off the line once they are dry
  7. If you don’t have to iron, fold your clothes as you take them off the line – this way all you have to do is put them in your closet and they won’t be wrinkled
