Hi Rachel,

There’s an often neglected point that I just thought of. Due to the humid climate in Cape York, air-drying clothes may be a problem and can take several days for them to dry properly. Do the residents in Indigenous communities at Cape York use dryer machines by any chance? Do they utilise other methods of drying clothes?

Thanks for your time!
