A question For you ladies who line dry your clothes!

I Just moved into a new home. Our dryer is gas but the hookup in the new house is electric. Soooo while we're waiting for someone to come run a gas line into the laundry room we've been using the clothes line in the backyard! But I was curious as to how you make the clothes soft? When I go get them off the line theyre stiff and hard. Is there anyway to change that?

  • yup liquid fabric softener. the only things that usually don't get soft are jeans and pure cotton tees. but normally with the tees you can shake the stiffness out of them.
