When I was a kid I remember watching my grandmother set up her clotheslines and hang the laundry out to dry. Weather permitting, she always hung the bedding out on the line and it was fun walking between the clotheslines with the sheets flapping in the wind. I’d pretend the sheets were the walls of my little fairy house out in the woods, with my grandmother’s towering pine trees overhead. And now as a grown-up, I find myself wanting to have fresh smelling laundry just like my grandma’s!
To get fresh smelling laundry like grandma’s, I decided to set up my own clothesline out back by the garden shed. I found a clothespin bag similar to the one she had, and hung my vintage pillow cases on the line to dry.
But before doing that, I first started by washing my sheets and cases with method 4x concentrated laundry detergent. I have a very sensitive nose when it comes to fragrances (which is why I don’t wear perfume). There are some detergents I simply can’t use because their fragrance is too strong or worse yet … it simply doesn’t smell good. But I love all the method fragrances. I chose “spring garden” for washing my sheets.
When I spent the night at my grandma’s as a kid, I remember she always had the freshest smelling pillow cases. I know the fresh clean scent helped lull me to a peaceful sleep. I wanted to recreate that feeling!
Fresh clover is another fragrance from method laundry detergent that I love. There’s a fragrance for everyone: fruity (ginger mango), floral (spring garden), herbaceous-woody (beach sage and fresh clover), and free + clear (no fragrance).
We just bought a new washing machine and I’m supposed to use high efficiency detergent, like method. You can tell which detergents are high efficiency because they’re marked with the letters h-e. I also love the design of the bottle. It’s much easier to handle than most laundry detergents because it has a narrow middle with ridges.
Do you see the hook on the side of the shed for the clothesline? The hooks were there when we moved in so I know someone before me also enjoyed fresh smelling laundry that’s been dried outside. I’ve decided I’m going to continue hanging my bedding out on the line throughout the summer!
