Drying clothes on a line can take a little longer than throwing clothes into a dryer, but it doesn’t have to be an unpleasant task. In addition to cutting down on energy use, other benefits can include enjoying the outdoors or humidifying the air in your house (when clothes line-dry indoors).
**How this helps**
Air-drying some or all of your wet laundry could save you $135 in energy costs every year, prevent tons of carbon from entering the atmosphere, and result in less wear-and-tear on clothes.
