Interesting. My mom hung them outside. Other than the occasional birdstrike, they were fine. I would think the "scratchiness" has more to do with the water quality and whatever they were washed with.

The dress shirts I usually wear to work I always have dry cleaned. Water ruins them.

I keep a sufficient inventory of Clothes Line that I can go about once a month and do several large loads. They have dedicated areas for folding and hanging clothes. It's one of those rare but nice niche small businesses that offer good service and don't rape the customers fiscally.
Interestingly, I seldom see OSU students there. Perhaps they all save up their laundry to take home to their parents. ;-)
