    When it thaws it’ll be wet again.

    It’s called freeze drying and it really works. If you don’t live in an area with restrictions on putting up a clothes line and the weather gets cold enough, try it.

    need very low humidity for it to work great.

    Oh, and how nice the clothes smelled. Puts that stink from dryer sheets to shame.

    The freeze-drying process is called SUBLIMATION … Google it. When there is a breeze, a vacuum is formed on one side of the garment, causing the ice to sublimate into vapor. (You can thank me later).

    Granted that sublimation [the change of state from solid to vapor without the intermediate liquid phase] does work better in a vacuum – I can’t see how a vacuum would form on the “inside of a garment” – sorry, can’t buy that one. BTW a change from a vapor directly to a solid is also called sublimation.

    Doesn’t work here. It froze, it didn’t rain but when I remembered I’d left the clothes out overnight they were still wet.

    Yes, I remember well my mom having us hang out our bedclothes in the winter. Brrr. She always told us they would thaw once we made our beds.

    Not suppose to take down until flapping, unless you want it damp to iron!

    They probably picked up the morning dew.

    Kind of like a weather rock? :-)

    Boy, do I ever remember lines of frozen diapers back in the ’50s. Finish hanging the last one, and have to take down the first one to drape over a rack inside.

    Ahhhhh I truly remember as a kid, taking the laundry off the line for my mom. Stiff as a board they were.
