    If you hang your clothes to dry indoors, try using a chain to hang wet clothes near a fireplace for quicker dry time.

I installed a hook in the ceiling near my woodstove, and then hung a lightweight chain with 1-inch links to hang wet clothes from. My chain is about 5 feet long, so it holds many hangers.

My sister calls it my “fire dryer.”
