Washing line? You're bloody lucky (pron. "looky")! In *my* day, we 
didn't have no washin' lines. We 'ad to hold the wet clothes for 
several hours, standing on one foot, as we blowed on it manually to 
help the evaporation. And it we didn't go it right, my mam would chop 
us into pieces and feed us to me dad for dinner.
