Tuesday's Sun features an account about the debate over hanging laundry out to dry. In this era of going green, it's the trendy thing to do to be environmentally friendly and save money on energy costs, too. (It's ironic that something so traditional as air-drying laundry would be called trendy...)
While there's no ordinance that prohibits the practice in Naperville, many subdivisions have policies that ban outdoor laundry drying for being unsightly. Again, the trendy thing to do is to forget aesthetics, repeal the bans and let the wind and sun dry our clothes and sheets. (They smell better, anyway). Even the tony Hamptons in New York has repealed its outdoor laundry ban, and they're like Naperville on steroids over there.
What do you think? If you lived in a subdivision where the homeowners association prohibits air-drying laundry, what would you do? Encourage the board to repeal the ban? Or do you think laundry is unsightly, and you favor banning it? Let's hear what you think.
