Go green drying your clothes

Line dry -- like grandma used to do.
Dry your clothes on a laundry line rather than throwing them in the dryer. Clothes dyers are the third-largest energy users in the home, behind the refrigerator and washing machine, costing more than $100 a year to operate, according to Project Laundry List.

Drying your clothes on the line can save you as much as $10 a month, said Brad Stroh, co-founder of Laundry lines vary in cost, from about $5 for a simple rope line to $500 or more for deluxe models.

  4. Hi Kim, Amy and KM. Thanks for stopping by and following me. I will return the favor shortly. I look forward to getting to know you each better through your blogs. Have a wonderful week!

    Amy - I hand mine outside and then I have 2 drying racks I use inside also. I am hoping to install a retractable line in the basement where the woodstove is to use during the winter months.

    KM- You can always hang them inside. I know its not quite the same but it does work.
