Line Dry Those Clothes!

It is surprising to me how few people in the United States line dry their clothes.  This is a simple way to use less electricity and save money.  People all around the world dry their clothes with the heat of the sun, and considering the dry weather we have during the summers, there is really little excuse for not deserting the electric clothes dryer for much of the year.  If you have limited space, like I do, a retractable clothes line (Whitmor Mfg. 20ft. Retractable Clothesline 6243-2513) allows you to put the line away when you're not using it.

There are a few additional perks to line drying clothes.

1.  The sun has notable stain removing powers.
2.  If you position your line right, you can use your clothes to shade plants that don't like all that heat during the hottest hours of the day.
