A Quora user asked, “Why do Indians dry their clothes on their balconies or terraces instead of drying them in the dryer of the washing machine?” and desis have a perfect answer for it.
“India is a hot tropical country except for the cold hill stations and during the rainy seasons. So, a washing machine with just a spinner is enough for us, just to squeeze out the water. In many houses, they don’t even have a washing machine as we have maids doing the washing. Some places with water shortage find washing machines taking lots of water,” replied one user.
He further added, “We dry these in the sunlight or in a breezy place like in our balconies or in the terrace. The sunlight and wind give the clothes a freshness that isn’t got by a drier. The smell of washed and sundried clothes is something to be felt, it cannot be explained. Sun-drying also kills bacteria and other germs. Also, the world recommends everybody to use solar energy to produce electricity and to save electricity,”
Many pointed out that the concept of drying clothes outside being environmentally friendly.
