Happy first day of June! If someone could please tell western Washington that it's almost summer, I'd appreciate it.
In honor of our rainy and icky weather, my challenge to you is to limit the use of your dryer for 1 week. We have 2 folding racks for indoor drying, and 2 tiny retractable lines for outside deck drying when the weather shapes up! This little guy is fantastic for socks, undis, etc.
We hang our clothes and let them almost airdry. When they're still a bit damp, we throw them in the dryer for 15-20 min to finish up the drying and to get the "crunch" out. If we can do this in the Seattle area, there are no excuses for not trying it yourself.
I've always line dried clothes to an extent, but really ramped it up last month after Troy's company laid off many of their employees. Every bit of savings counts for something. With the outside temp about the same over the last 2 months, my power bill dropped by $30. That is tangible savings.
