Line Drying even when it's Cold Out!

As the weather has grown chillier and chillier over the last week or so around here, it makes me think about what my bathroom looked like last winter: there were diapers hanging all over my shower curtain rod trying to dry! It made me long for the days of warm weather, nice breezes, and especially dry shells in an hour. :)

By now you all know that I am a big advocate of line drying PUL covers and shells. But how do you make it work in the winter if you have snow up to your door knobs outside? Or what if winter for you means more rain? Or just lower temperatures?

Whatever the reason you can't hang them outside (and I hang ours outside until I can't stand going out there anymore, lol), there's a solution somewhere INSIDE.

If you want to spend a little money, or already have this around, you can buy a drying rack that folds up when not in use. They don't take up much space even when you're using them, honestly, and they work great for drying a bunch of diapers.

But if you're like me, and you don't really want to spend much money just so you can creatively dry your diapers indoors, then you can try something from the list below.

1. Hang a wash line in your basement, over the washer and dryer, or somewhere else inside and out of the way. It'll work just like the line you have outside! It will likely just take a little longer to dry.

2. Hang your diapers over the backs of your chairs. This seems painfully obvious, but sometimes I miss the simplest ideas so thought I'd mention it. ;)

3. Hang your diapers on hangers and hang them up in your bathroom, on the shower curtain rod. Don't have a shower curtain rod? A friend of mine has a rod hung up over her washer and dryer and hangs hers there! I like hanging mine on the rod over the tub because then the diapers drip into the tub.
