hanging out

So, apparently clothes dryers take energy to run. (I know we all know this) But, apparently if you hang your clothes to dry this does not. Outdoors is a good place during the summer. Indoors during the winter (you don’t want frozen clothes). You can even get racks for drying indoors.

I however do not know how I feel about this. Sure, maybe for shirts and such, but I have a vivid memory growing up of a neighbor hanging their underwear in their backyard. I saw it, and didn’t want to see it. So, I’m not sold on this idea.


  1. I have to say something! I live in the north west of England - It rains and is cold! i don't use a dryer! Waste of money and energy! I have a rack in the house for my smalls, socks, knickers, underpants etc. So no matter the weather I don't have to show everyone else. I put the washing out to dry when the weather is nice enough (not very often). If it's not I have racks and I have curtain rails. If I can do something so small to make a difference then it's worth it and it doesn't cost me any money.
