Thats kinda what I've been doing. After Katrina, we needed to wash our clothes in the tub and line dry and our clothes line was popped because of whatever had landed on it, plus the yard was a mess, until we slowly cleaned it, and with unpredictable weather, so we put ourselves clothes lines in each bedroom and after washing, each room had clothes particular to whoever's room it was. I now have, without a doubt the best clothes line I have ever seen....on picture or face to line but still rely on the inside, room lines when weather is questionable. Its almost easier for me to dry clothes inside, but takes longer because whatever will eventually need to go on hangers, I just put straight onto hangers from the washer and then hang it to dry in the rooms. When dry enough, it can go straight into the closets....its already on the hanger. Unless I need to look really sharp, I'm good. But the room with the little gas heater is the room that dries the clothes best, so I am killing 2 birds with one stone, so to speak.I went on strike for using a clothes dryer, back in 2001. I hang clothes inside when it is too rainy or damp outside. We are heating the rooms anyways, with zoned heating. Why not get twice the savings out of the heating $$ by drying clothes with it.
