I dry my laundry on my oil heater if the weather isn't favorable for outside line drying.

Oh I miss buying my jeans from Macy's. The only place I ever found them that fit.  I kind of stocked up before my move though bought extras that I'm saving for when my current ones need retiring.

On the dryer subject, I have a condenser dryer that has like twenty settings and a rack for shoes if you ever wash sneakers etc.

I mainly use the cotton hanger setting so it gets the wetness out but leaves them damp enough to where I hang them up. Only shrunk a few things which were my fault for letting them go to long. A typical session is about an hour so a bit lengthy, but I currently have no garden to line dry.

I use higher settings when doing towels and sheets, it takes probably two hours but it's  something I can live with.

My parents bought it for us for a wedding gift but I think it was roughly 4-500? And since it's not vented I can chuck it anywhere in our next place if the kitchen doesn't have room.

Of all the things to adjust to in Britain, I just hope we have enough money after buying a house to move the washer/dryer to the garage where they belong.

I'm open to all things British, except that.

And biscuits are biscuits, cookies are cookies, dammit!

Some houses have utility rooms, shop around!

Your garage will need to have a hookup for water and for draining if you want a washing machine in it, and power for the washer and dryer. I only mention it because not all of them will.

I want a utility room so bad. A lot of my clothes have to hang dry anyway but I have allergies and can't hang them outside. So I would love a dedicated place to put our hanging thing

We have a small utility room.  We converted it into a makeshift kitchen because we don't have one of those.   ::)

Yeah, me too!  But I'm not gonna lie: when I do finally get to have both, I will appreciate the separate utility room space.

My garage, while attached, doesn't have direct access into the house.  We hope to change that when we put an extension on in a few years.  But I wouldn't want to be trudging outside each time I d to do a load of wash.

Mole mentioned having their washer & dryer in the garage. To each their own. Personally, I choose trudging to the dryer over hanging up clothes.  :)

I'm with you there.  I've even converted my husband to appreciate (and use) the dryer!

..I still have to sneak it in and do it when he's not home/listen to him moan about my waste of electricity. LOL He's more okay with it in winter but when it's warm enough out that we don't full-on need heating, he doesn't want to waste the electricity.
My, how time flies....

I have to turn on our dryer late at night after my wife has gone to bed.  I'm in trouble if she ever gets up and sees it going for 5 hours.

I will often use the excuse of "OH! Sorry! I forgot the clothes were in the washing machine and now it's soooooo late I'm too tired to take the time to hang them up...I'll just throw them in the dryer...."
