Laundry Advice for Confused American

Hello, a rather silly question I know, but can anyone give me some advice on how best to manage laundry in the winter? With the cold overcast days, I can't put laundry out on the line. And dryers here don't seem to really dry clothes - they just seem to heat up but remain damp. Any advice would be appreciated.

oe just hang them in the attic

You need a clothes horse, that you put up in the warmest room and dry them there. I think they are called 'seche linge' as opposed to a 'machine a seche linge'

You can also get smaller ones that hang from your radiator.
