    I'd LOVE to fire my dryer but it rains too much here to get my clothes dry outside So I just use dryer balls to reduce my drying time

    I love line drying my clothes - but I'm not one to line dry inside I love the smell of freshly dried clothes outside on the line though

    In Australia EVERYONE line dries. We have these clothes lines called "Hills Hoists"
    They are a square and they spin and they collapse down. Every back yard has 'em.
    (Click here for Wikipedia Info)



    And most (99%) of people have a few lines strung up in their garage or carport in case of rain. I think only about 50% of people have dryers for use in case of an emergency or something.

    When I moved to the States I was baffled by the fact that everyone uses dryers 100% of the time.

    It seems so wasteful. Can't wait to move into a house with a yard and put up a clothes line!

    Thats what we had in France! I miss it so much... I loved drying my clothes outside but housing wont allow outdoor clothes lines here. I dry a lot of stuff inside and via a line in the garage, but I do still use my dryer plenty too.

    Andrew made me a clothesline when we moved in it was on my required 'we have to do this to the house immediately' list... in fact, it was the only thing I really cared about...

    drying clothes in the sun helps get out organic stains too! All my cloth diapers are poop stain free And it is a natural sanitizer.

    My family in Germany has one of those too

    I miss having a clothes line so much.
    Sheets and towels just don't smell as good from a dryer!

    I listened to a report on NPR about residential areas that were being challenged because they had laws against putting your laundry on the line.
