If you want to do laundry in the winter, I have some tips.
If you are using the hand-wash cycle for sweaters... allow just a little spin to release 10 of the 50 lbs of water trapped in the sweaters.
If you have heard that drying outside in chilly weather will speed up the drying process for said sweaters... don't put them in the shade, or in 1F weather. Wet clothing + 1F + bare hands = rapid onset hypothermia.
If you see icicles forming off the arms of the sweaters... don't just giggle and think how funny it looks. Remove sweaters from porch bench before they become a permanent fixture or they might snap when you are trying to move them.
If you do move the sweaters into the sun... make sure to take a picture before your sculptures melt.
I'll post a picture later.
