In reply to:

I visited Ireland I was introduced to the "airing cupboard" which was a clothes press with heat in it to take the chill off clothes that were brought in from hanging to dry outside. Neat idea!


You mean you don't have airing cupboards over there? What do you do with your clothes if it starts to rain before they're dry?

If I catch them before the showers, I spread them out on the furniture until they dry, then put them away. Here in the Caribbean, the sun can be shining and it's raining anyway. Then I just leave them on the line a little longer than anticipated...*sigh*
