I love modern conveniences, the more things become automatic, the more I love it.
I remember the time when I didn’t have so many automatic things. I remember hanging clothes out on the clothes line, even in the freezing weather–well we had to have clean our “uns” you know. Way back when I had two babies in diapers at the same time and we didn’t have disposable diapers, I washed cloth diapers every day, and hung then on the clothes line to dry.
Now I have a clothes dryer and things are much easier. However, I have talked to a lot of ladies lately that still hang clothes on the line. Most of them say they like the way clothes smell when they have been hanging out in the fresh air. Well, the only thing I got from clothes drying on the line was little bug specks and bird droppings, and more work washing them again.
So I think clothes dryers, like many other kinds of dryers, are wonderful. But there are some things I wonder about in the world of dryers.
We see and use the hand dryers in public restrooms, we use hair dryers when we wash our hair. The dish washer has a dryer selection on it to heat-dry the dishes. But, when we step out of the shower we grab a towel to dry off our bodies.
I went through a car wash the other day that dried your car before you drove out of the wash bay. These things were huge, hanging from the ceiling and sounding like a jet engine plane. This all got me to wondering why can’t we have a dryer similar to that to dry our bodies when we get out of the shower. I guess we would use a hair dryer, but I believe mine would burn out before I got all the way around my body. And it would cut down on our wash load because we wouldn’t have bath towels in the laundry.
