Do you remember winter holidays with your grandparents when grandmother was washing clothes and hanging them in the cold? It would seem, why? After all, the house is warm, comfortable and cozy, and the laundry dries faster.

However, even in the coldest frosts, raw linen will dry out on the street due to the process of sublimation, that is, the transition from solid to gaseous state.

Thanks to this technique, our grandmothers avoided moisture in the apartment and disinfected clothes, because the negative temperature of the air kills any bacteria.

And the smell of linen dried on a frost is absolutely unique, and we simply cannot reach it in any other way!

After our grandmothers brought frosty underwear into the house, it was ironed, and then it finally dried up, leaving behind a smell of frosty freshness.
