I have a confession to make.
I love our clothesline! Our whites are whiter, and everything smells like sunshine! I’d probably hang our clothes out to dry, even if it didn’t save money. But, it does save money, so BONUS!
According to some sort of super technical report, running an electric dryer costs roughly 49 cents per load. Around here we go through at least one load of laundry per day, so costs add up quickly. Hanging a load of laundry takes me about a minute, and another minute to take it down when it’s dry. 2 minutes in the sunshine to save 49 cents?? Sounds better than clipping coupons!
Electricity isn’t the only thing you’ll be saving when you switch to line drying your laundry. Have you ever wondered what all that junk is in your lint trap? It’s your clothes! Each time your favorite sweatshirt goes for a tumble in the dryer some of it’s fibers rub off. Unless your going to knit a sweater out of dryer lint, you’re just letting your clothes waste away. Lame! Dryer heat also wreaks havoc on clothing’s elastic. And nobody likes saggy undies!
Oh, and the reason our whites are whiter and our laundry smells like sunshine is that the sun naturally kills the bacteria hanging out in our laundry. Yay!
Clotheslines are awesome! Give this money saving switch a try!
