I hate to put at risk whatever remnants of credibility I might have, but in the interest of following the science it probably should be mentioned that ice is, in fact, susceptible to sublimation. I believe that's why ice cubes tend to shrink in the tray in the freezer. So...even frozen clothes hanging on a clothesline in frigid conditions may (very slowly) be losing their moisture content. :eek2:

I guess it works best if you have a big wardrobe. And a lot of trees.

Hey I never said it wasn't possible lol. I only have one set of clothes. Can't wait a week for them to dry outside haha .. Wouldn't it make more sense to just hang them in the house since yer gonna anyway?

Yeah, it was my step mother from my child hood that thought she could freeze dry clothes and then have me wear them the next day. It was a cold walk to school partner. .. :lol:

I should have been more clear. She thought she could freeze dry them over night.

Well,Lightning, hanging them in the house is fine ,but we don't have enough room to hang all of them in the house at once,we aint city folks,we get our clothes dirty on a daily basis. So,we can hang a few pieces in the house for quick drying,the rest goes on the line to be brought into the house later,replacing the dried pieces on the rack & so on. We don't do laundry at 6 PM & hang it out overnight expecting it to be dry by 6AM !?!?!?Last load might be 2-3PM & then hung on rack in house overnite to dry. Maybe our outdoor drying success is a special blessing from God, as He might see us as you do,... too simple to understand that freeze-drying won't work. :)

This is meant to be taken lightly,

Just for the record, I'm not gonna run home and tie my clothes out while my wife dials the mental health unit. I won't stuff them in my coal furnace either.

Well , you could shorten the drying time by reducing the pressure. Water evaporates faster at higher altitudes. If you have some good chimney draft may be you hook that up and save 30 seconds on drying time. Using the draft saves you some electricity also from the fan, plus it is quieter and you get rid of the humidity . So just hook it up to Baro.

I think this means Lee's undies would have been drier if his step-mother had run them up the flagpole. :lol: Thanks to the forum step-mothers everywhere will know that now. :roll:

I pledge allegiance,
To the undies,
Flying high upon our flagpole.
And to the others,
Who doubt their dryness,
Cold balls, shrunken sac, skid marks, and psychological scaring for all. .....
