Spring Cleaning - Knitter Style

It's that time of year.
The season to shake off the dust and cobwebs of winter. Some people wash walls, scrub floors, polish silver, and windows. Me, I do this.

I sort my winter sweaters.

Then I wash them. My soap of choice is Eucalan - the no-rinse, wool wash.
Following the wash, comes the lengthy drying process. Sweaters laid flat on a towel on the bed, don't dry quickly.

This year, though, I came across a quick-dry method. Place the sweaters in the dryer - no heat - for 20 minutes. It works great. The dryer takes out the dripping moisture, encouraging them to dry much more quickly. But with no heat, the sweaters don't felt.
