Install a laundry line and use it.
10 minutes to install. 10 minutes each load to hang, take down and fold.
Today is Earth Day, and this is something I've wanted to do for a long time. It does seem ridiculous to run the electric heated dryer when we can just hang stuff out to dry in our sun and breeze. This week's record highs made the clothes dryer seem even MORE ridiculous.
I hope so. It does take a little more time to hang out the clothes, but the first load (lightweight) dried before the next load of laundry was ready for hangin', so just as fast as the electric dryer normally takes. Temps dropped during the next drying load, so that load took longer. Still, it's not like we have to sit and wait and watch the water evaporate! :)
The girls enjoyed hanging the laundry (all the while singing pioneer tunes). I hope we can drop our electricity bill a bit. And we're taking a tiny bit of the load off the grid that also provides air-conditioning to those suffering in the inland valleys and southland. SOOO glad to be in a more temperate climate!
Line details: Retractable for easy use while preserving yard space between loads.
