As these late spring days stretch out and flirt with summer, one of the best parts of enjoying dryer weather becomes clear: clotheslines. This might not seem obvious at first, but think about it! When you hang out your linens, the smells of spring are embedded in your sheets and towels as they dry in the breeze. When you fall asleep in your air dried sheets, these aromas act as a calming reminder of days spent in the shade of a favourite park with friends.
Not only do linens dried on the line smell fantastic, but the Sun is the best natural bleach, making your whites whiter in the most eco-friendly way possible. Other options to consider for fresher spring linens are old fashioned laundering methods. One thing we often forget to clean, is the inside of our washing machines. This can make a big difference in the freshness of your linens, and is a super easy fix. You can also make your own environmentally friendly laundry detergent as a way to naturalize your washing regimen. These two simple changes will improve the cleanliness and freshness of your linens for spring time.

If you’re in an area with a ban on clotheslines, or if you’re finding that your linens are left lacking despite these alternative laundering options – it might be time for a spring linen update. You can tie this replacement in with your spring cleaning regimen because linens are something we often put on the back burner, –even when they’ve had considerable use! Updating linens is a great way to get that fresh spring clean without hanging anything out to dry.
Happy Spring Time!
