laundry line culture

A chance comment from a coworker has me comparing how clothes are hung on the line.  In my co-worker's community, everyone sorts by colour.  In another friend's home town, they hung items by size. From what I've seen so far, people around here sort by type of item.  It feels like an unspoken piece of culture  - that whatever way Saturday washing is hung up to dry, it's not random.
