    Default Some jolly useful advice

    Do not hang out your favourite bedding when it is -2degrees (even if the sun is shining) and then expect it to be;
    a. dry
    b. foldable
    c. able to fit through the front door.

    A Swedish friend of mine, told me that was how they used to dry their washing. Leave it out to freeze, then give it a sharp, vigorous shake which would shake all the ice out and leave the washing nearly dry.

    I heard that too, washing is supposed to be better for being frosted. Best get the washing out then
