Little Thing #5: Use a clothesline.

Now that it’s summer, you may see more clothes hanging out on the line in the sun! Get in on the fun and enjoy fresh, sun-warmed clothes, all while saving costs in your energy bill. Gas and electric dryers can be convenient, though they increase your carbon footprint. There are many portable clothesline options for you, if you lack the space or materials to build one. Don’t forget – other ways to limit your dryer use include wearing clothes more than once before washing again, and drying full (but not over-full) loads of laundry. 

Let us know if you currently use or will start to use a clothesline or another energy-saving option this summer!
