July is usually very hot in Utah. This makes it an excellent time to wash and dry all the bedding: blankets, featherbeds, comforters, pillows.
However, even in the dry heat of the desert, it takes days for feather-filled things to dry, so, naturally, they cannot all be washed at the same time, due to lack of drying space. I have had, therefore, large, wet things drying in the basement for weeks now.
I am really, really tired of the smell of wet feathers.
