In the early years we often dried our clothes on racks in the living room- directly under a ceiling fan. When allowed, we strung clothes lines on the balcony or between nearby trees. One early home had a wonderful old T-post clothesline I absolutely loved! It was continually blessed with load after load of cloth diapers and baby things.
In the run of things trouble can occur making basic mending skills necessary- replacing a button, patching a hole, even a hem here or there. Simple sewing skills keep us careful of our finances, making every penny count as our clothes last as long as possible.
Then there is the issue of ironing. We are fairly careful not to purchase items needing dry cleaning, but ironing seems to fit many fabric needs. Simple ironing skills- dress shirts, skirts, or jackets, can help us save time and money while keeping us nicely dressed.
