Cheating the weather in the winter--you know my extreme love of line-dried sheets--is a favorite of Things I get to do today.

First I start early in the day to get the most of the dry time. After the sheets are washed I put them in the drier for about 10 minutes to remove the first 15% of the moisture. Then out in the fresh air, I hang the sheets and pillow cases--nothing folded over so mloisture can evaporate as easily as possible. When they are about 90% dry, or the sun is setting, or the rain is returning, whichever comes first, the sheets come in. Here's the most important tip: all the linens are draped over this amazing rack from my favorite store that is placed over a heat register or in front of the stove. Now the fragrance of the great out-of-doors drifts through the whole house. A bit later, the sheets, still smooth from their out-of-body/house experience, are ready for the bed.
