Today's tip: Hang your clothes on the line to dry.
I'm not sure why, but I just really wanted to say that today. It's not going to help you lose any weight. It's not going to make your life any less toxic. I don't think so anyway. But I really like to do it.
Drying your clothes outside uses much less energy than the dryer does, so it is good for the environment. I usually dry them on the line and then fluff 2 loads together in the dryer to get rid of the fuzz and dog hair. We have a lot of that. Labs. : )
It makes everything smell really good. Your sheets and clothes smell like sunshine.
It gives you an excuse to go outside every so often. If nothing else, you appreciate the a/c that much more!
Oh, and hey, lugging that laundry basket around is good exercise! There, that's a healthy aspect of line drying your clothes.
And yes, we have an extension ladder on the top of our clothes lines. Doesn't everyone?
