Drying Clothes in Singapore

Hubs had to travel to Singapore recently on business.  Among the photos he took while there was this one…


Take a closer look…

Why, yes.  Yes, those are clothes line poles!  I can only surmise that they must be telescoping, to enable them to hang stuff on the ends of the poles.


Apparently, bamboo poles used to hang clothes out to dry are quite popular, because the cost of electricity is high.  By threading the pole through the sleeves and/or pant legs, the clothing is more secure than if they just used clothes pins.

It certainly is eco-friendly.  I just hope no one hangs their unmentionables out to dry!

  1. Very interesting!

  2. That’s funny! Gotta do what you gotta do!

  3. I guess if it works!! LOL

  4. I’d still use clothespins!

  5. It’s a great idea. As long as the weather is nice outside.

  6. That’s seriously AWESOME! I love it

  7. Well, I guess they have to dry the clothes somehow lol. What a great glimpse of everyday life in another country!

  8. That’s very eco-friendly of them!

  9. I like to hang my clothes out to dry, it saves energy

  10. I like the idea, but not sure it’s big enough to dry clothes for a family of five 😉

  11. air dry I wonder if the clothes dry soft there and i certainly don’t want to see anyones underwear out there

  12. I am from Russia and it’s pretty common there to dry closes outside the window. When I moved to US I was surprised that people didn’t do that here.

  13. I bet they dry faster up there!

  14. That is pretty cool. I have wanted to dry clothes in our yard, but have been afraid that the deer will mess with them. They like to come into our yard.

  15. I would love to hang dry my clothes, I do sometimes but not often enough. However, drying them that high, would if they fell down on someones head? Like your underwear?? haahaha!

  16. I wonder how often you lose the stuff on the end? Great pictures!

  17. this really made me laugh out loud 😉
