I always dry my laundry outside.

I too come from a long line of "clothesline users"...I remember, as a child, asking my mother what that "thing" was beside the washing machine...the "dryer"! I had never seen her use it! I agree that nothing beats the smell of air dried laundry. Plus..nothing shrinks when you air dry and clothes look better and last longer.

I`m blessed to live in the country and have an actual clothesline (and an unfinished basement with lines strung from the rafters for those days when the weather doesn`t co-operate).I have trees that I could string a rope between (if necessary) and most important,,,space. I realize not everyone is so lucky...and might also have city bylaws to contend with.

Improvise..do what you can..because everyone deserves that "fresh smell". If you`re stuck for ideas go to www.hangittodry.com...you might find some there.

thank-you for reminding us of the economic and environmental benefits of air drying our clothes. I sell unique wall mount drying racks designed for indoor use which can accommodate up to 5 QUEEN sized bed sheets!

The best part is the drying rack extends from the wall only 3.5" when not in use so it takes up very little space in the home. The sturdy 1" diameter drying rods won't bend and are made of strong Douglas fir.

Hopefully more people will be turning off the most energy intensive appliance in the home.

Thanks for your post!

Best regards,

Me too...i like it hanging my clothes to areas where fresh air goes cause it is really true that there's nothing like smell of clothes when it is dried in fresh air.But i don agree on hanging it on balcony specially when your living in cities.Its not good to look at!

I would love to have a clothes line on my balcony, but like many other apartment buildings in the city core, it's written into our lease that clothes cannot be dried on the balcony (probably because lines of hanging clothes out windows on balconies tends to be associated with slums for many people -- hopefully this attitude will change as we become more and more energy conscious).

We have an eco-friendly washer and dryer, but we do a lot of clothes drying on drying racks. Saves us a lot of money and our clothes last longer!
