Car park with water so laundry day. Going to have to hang it all in The van!!

Strangest place you’ve done laundry?
Suggestions for hanging it all inside?

Our usual strategy is to hand wash the small stuff on a daily basis as we travel.
We have a few bungees hanging up in the garage and use them if we want to be discreet. Stuff also dries quickly on the dash, especially in an a class when the windscreen is in the sun.
Rest of it goes in the washroom.

Sheets are the worst, we usually drape them over chairs but obviously you can't always do that.

Them fitted sheets are a bugger to dry....

So all dry. Two knicker chandeliers, coat hangers off every window, cupboard handle and doors. Didn’t do the bedlinen this time, but have hung it across the a class window on the hangers. Fortunately a good breeze blowing through the van. Just pleased to have clean underwear again!

We normally put the awning up, hang the small stuff from that and put a line from wing mirror to opposite end of the awning for the bigger stuff. The bike rack is for overflow items😀.

We did similar last year and while in the Pyrenees had a flock of cows wander through and nearly demolished the lot! 😂 (I call them flockin’ cows, or similar 😂)

Then near the Ardeche we had a sudden storm appear almost out of nowhere and we had to rush to get it all in along with the awning that was in danger of blowing off, ably assisted by a Spanish MHer next to us. Who wants Brexit when Juan-ny foreigner is only too pleased to help out?

For this year, if we ever get away 🤬, I’ve purchased a small 3 legged whirligig clothes airer, it folds up nice and small and splits in half for easy storage. I’ve seen them before In a couple of Dutch vans and wondered where to get one, and found one in Trago close to us. It’s been roadtested in the back garden a few times successfully, and when mounted on grass it can be pegged down for security.

We bought an extending airer that fits in our shower. (Shower is separate from loo and sink). If the weather is not great I just hang it in there overnight and it is usually dry by the morning....then on the dashboard to finish it off.

How are you doing Clunegapyears? 😁

I bought one of those clothes airers, but it doesn't rotate. Also, the lines are too close together, so if you have a lot of laundry to dry the air can't circulate between very well.

I had an extending paint roller pole, so I rigged that up with a long line and some guy ropes.

One end is attached to a tree or somewhere on the van, and the pole secured with tent pegs.

Managed to wash and dry duvet and cover on that before 11a.m. in the Hebrides when Ellie was [barfing] on it!
