With the arrival of winter and the rainy season, many users begin to have a small problem related to our clothes, and no, it is not about changing from short sleeves to long sleeves. Once the washing machine has finished its laundry, and if you cannot or do not want to use the dryercomes the dilemma of where to hang clothes when it’s raining.

Doing it inside the house is almost always the first option, especially in those apartments where there are no space problems. The problem is that hanging clothes inside the house, it generates humidity in the room where we have laid it or even bad odorss. To avoid these problems, we can apply a series of tricks when hanging clothes.

Keep moisture at bay


In the rainy season, using a clothesline inside the house is a solution to dry clothes quickly and effectively. But in exchange, we will have to deal with some inconveniences, such as higher humidity in the room or even bad smells. And all this counting on the fact that the washing machine has carried out an important spin and that the clothes do not drip.

When it’s time to hang clothes inside the house, In the market we find many types of solutions. From the classic folding clotheslines that have extensions, like wings with which to expand the surface on which to hang clothes, to the clotheslines that are placed on the wall and that have extendable ropes to connect from one end of the clothesline to the other. the room.

Leaving aside where the clothes are hung inside the house, there are a series of tricks that can be applied to avoid the generation of humidity and bad odors.

ventilated room

Clothes line

In this sense, the ideal is to place the clothesline, whether wall, ceiling or folding, in a room with a window, so that it can be opened and ventilated whenever you can and that does not mean that the house becomes a freezer.

By avoiding placing clothes in rooms without ventilation (and the door is not a valid element), you will avoid humidity. Also, it’s interesting to leave the door open so that possible humidity does not concentrate inside the room.

Also, the clothesline should be placed near the window and if possible, in a room where direct sunlight falls and if the floor allows it, make it the largest. It is about taking advantage of the greenhouse infection that the sun causes when we have the window closed, so that the temperature inside the room rises naturally.

The draft of air when opening the window will prevent environmental humidity and the possible formation of mold in the hanging clothes

Perhaps on some occasion you have met acquaintances or relatives who they put the clothes on top of the radiators, from central or gas heating, so that clothes dry quickly. This option has several drawbacks.

On the one hand caloric value is lost when heating the room and you need more time to reach the temperature you have marked on the thermostat. Also, when placing clothes on a radiator, what it does is harden when it dries.

Use the spin

Clothing

We must always take into account that the washing machine has spun the clothes (if the type of garment allows it). The objective is prevent it from leaking water while lying down. In the event that it is impossible to spin the clothes or that they have been washed by hand, we can always place a plastic sheet on the floor to prevent possible drops from staining or damaging the floor.

If you don’t want to put a plastic on the floor, you can also hang clothes to drain in the bathtub or shower tray and when it is only damp, place it on the clothesline.

These are the four best electric clotheslines to dry clothes inside the house on rainy days (and best of all, they take up little space).

It must be taken into account that both the water that can drip, as well as excessive humidity, they can affect parquet floors much more than to marble or terrazzo surfaces. Humidity is the worst enemy of a home’s parquet.

Maintaining a room with excessive humidity, for whatever reason, cause the parquet to swell and swell by absorbing this moisturewhich can end up causing the sheets or tablets that make it up or even rot.

hangers

It is also important to determine how to put clothes on the clothesline. We must try to leave space between the different garments so that the air circulates between them and in this way humidity will not be generated and it will be easier for it to dry before.

In the case of the most delicate garments, you can use hangers to save space and prevent wrinkles. In addition, there are clothes that require special care and thus, woolen garments, pillows, duvets… must be dried horizontally to prevent them from deforming, it is necessary that you dry them horizontally.

It must be taken into account that the clothes, before storing them, must be completely dry, since if they conserve humidity, they can be taken to the closets and closets. For this reason, and if you are in a hurry, always you can make it dry faster by using fans that facilitate air circulation or turning on the heating at home to raise the temperature more quickly, although in this case I already know that we are raising our energy bill.

With these simple tricks, we can make clothes dry inside the house without having to resort to dryers or energy-consuming devices and at the same time, we take care of the state of the clothes as well as avoid the appearance of moisture on the floor.
