But in winter you usually cant hang clothes outside to dry because they either just freeze or don't dry.
So I practiced hanging the wet clothes on all available surfaces in front of the wood stove. It takes roughly half a day this way to dry all the way for jeans. Plus I have to watch the clothes carefully to make sure nothing hanging over starts a fire.
Obviously I need to rig up some type of drying racks for when the electricity goes out. Those on the east coast are experiencing what this must be like right now. I'm so thankful we have a nice big wood stove!
