   Snobby upper-crust NYC suburb doesn't want to look "low class" like a trailer park so they make it illegal to hang your clothes outside. Oh Noes, g-strings flying in the wind

Looks like they're only banning people from hanging out laundry in their front yards, and in this case I side with the suburb.
 
Doesn't say that can't use their back yard to hang up laundry, so I don't know what the huge fuss is about.  Hanging laundry up in the front yard is tacky and I say this as someone who is neither wealthy, nor do I live in a posh neighborhood.

Bathia_Mapes: front yard is tacky


Meh. Front yard, back yard. Who cares, it's about the OUTRAGE!

/agrees that the front yard is tacky, and you should be able to do what you want in your backyard. (To a degree)

It works a lot better that way.

I delight in hanging my laundry out to dry. I love the feel and smell of the sheets and towels when they are crisp from the line.
Who decided this was trashy?
I hate the area I live in but at least I have a clothesline.
Also, mine is in the backyard as if that matters.

In the summers, I hang up my clothes inside to dry. Usually faster than using the dryer.

I never do laundry, ever but I do enjoy hanging my underwear in the front yard.
The neighbors all think I have a hobby staining furniture.

Hanging clothes in either the front or backyards has been against code or whatever where I live for years. There are still some who do it, but yeah, who the fark wants to see someone underpants hanging on some trashy clothesline?

If you hang your clothes outside to dry, make sure you check for spiders before you bring them inside to fold them.

Just saying.

There's liquid fabric softener for the washer, but it doesn't work nearly as well as good ole Bounce. May as well get a washtub and washboard like in The Stand.

Some of us are allergic.  Fabric softener might make clothing more comfortable to wear, but having an allergy to the stuff can cause reactions from contact dermatitis to the more serious reaction, hives.

I have to admit that house in the first picture looks kind of cool..

Anyway, did they also ban fatties and ugos? You know a lot of those rich people are downright unsightly, and those older hags who get plastic surgery just don't look right.

Only for the lower-rich. Those of us with more money hire white people. It's more satisfying. Remember, you don't have real money until your slaves are white slaves.

no don't do that, don't you dare
laundry breezy in the air
but it's okay, do what you do, cheat with your secretary lunchtime screw
and have those thoughts, those dirty thinks, about your teenage teeny-winks
and Mom meets guys on the net, just the thought of it makes her soaking wet
don't you air dry your duds
front lawn suburb classy us
Dad sneaks out late at night he thinks chicks with dicks are dynamite
he likes his own son too and likes to dreams of things he'd do
if he could hang his sheets
off a front line pole for all to see

Can you believe my HOA prevented me from having easy access to all those spare parts in the toyota camry on cinder blocks in my front yard? As if that wasn't bad enough, they made me shut down my meth lab and sent animal control to take away my cats!

When I was a kid, close to 60 years ago, all the moms hung their laundry on their backyard clothes lines, and that was just what everyone did. When did this become a sign of being trashy? How many people get close enough to your backyard to spend quality time inspecting your under-duds and whatever else is drying there? Sheesh.

/love my clothesline
/get out of my back yard.

I know. I live in Wisconsin, and let me tell you, once the highs stay below zero, your underwear will not dry outside no matter how long you leave them on the clothes line.

Trust me, I've tried it!

/we may not get a stretch like that this year..... or ever again

I lived in a high-rise in a New York suburb and they had to send out notices telling people not to hang sheets up at the windows as curtains. Seriously. And the rent in the building started at $1,000 for studios. So not poor people...

Huge difference between airing your laundry in the backyard vs front yard, these people made a rule about the front yard. Thanks trollmitter for today's HOA thread though.

1.) Hang your clothes outside, in your front yard, and spell out words. I'd go with 'Freedom'
2.) Laugh as your constitutionally protected free speech gets you a ticket
3.) Hire kick-ass lawyer
4.) Sue the f*** out of city. Win. Lots of money

Don't want my laundry hanging in my front yard? Knock on my door, introduce yourself, tell me what your problem is. If I like you or you have a compelling argument, I might just follow your request. If I don't, we might still be able to work something out. Buy me a new dryer and I won't need to hang my clothes outside. Or pay some small percentage of my electricity bill, to compensate me for the cost.

But beyond that, you can go to hell.

I prefer to draw from North American stock, watching their snowflake-ish attitude break down over the course of a winter in the remote chalet is very satisfying. You just have to pay them a dollar more per hour then they'd make elsewhere and the boon to their social status among their peers prevents them from leaving. Their social standing! Hah!

This. If I use fabric softener I walk around all day itching/scratching, I even have to double rinse my clothes just to get any soap residue out of them.

In Rhode Island they are arguing about letting you keep chickens. Chickens! I'd rather hear laundry flapping in the wind than some yard cock screaming WAKE THE F*** UP!" at 4 am! + they want to limit bird feeders because we gots a rat problem here folks! So hang your stanky underoos where ever you want! I'm flipping you the bird! And a rat!

I can't use fabric softener either. I did, however, get dryer balls which will soften laundry without fun chemicals. Don't much use them though.
