I'm probably not entirely right, but evaporation differs from boiling in that it is surface rather than bulk phenomenon driven by a pressure gradient rather than temperature. If a volume of liquid is placed in a container with equal or greater volume that contains no other matter, the amount of liquid that evaporates depends on the difference in the volumes, which wouldn't be the case for boiling. My question is if solids do a similar "pressure-driven surface sublimation". I've never heard or observed something like that happening, and if it doesn't, why would liquids do it but not solids?
Hanging clothes on a cold and windy (to aid evaporation) day often results in the clothes becoming stiff due to some of the water on the clothes freezing. The clothes will then continue to dry as sublimation occurs with ice being directed converted into water vapour.
You may have noticed that the amount of snow decreases due to sublimation (no visible melting) even though the air temperature is below freezing and ice cubes getting smaller in your freezer.
