While we are sharing best practices and the fruit of generations of gradually 
accumulated wisdom:  those who wanted to completely foil their neighbors' 
curiosity about the nature/condition of the family underwear washed sheets 
first and hung them on the high-visibility lines.  Everything else could then 
be hung inside these protective curtains.  This also had the advantage that 
sheets blowing like sails in the breeze are esthetically pleasing in a way 
that few other laundry experiences can match.  The down side was that less 
breeze might reach the inner items.  Well brought up people considered the 
privacy and esthetic advantages to be worth this cost.  And neighbors who did 
not want to be confronted with the more fraught items of others' wash blessed 
them each time they glanced out their windows.
