Saving on energy bills and ironing
Yet another advantage of line drying laundry is that you can spin at the very lowest spin speed your washer allows and hang out laundry fairly wet.
This will mean you:
*save on the electricity your washer uses
*save on wear & tear of your washer
*save on wear & tear of your laundry
And best of all because although I enjoy hanging our my washing I HATE IRONING you will:
*save time as you keep ironing to a minimum
*save on the electricity your iron uses
If you use a tumble dryer you would spin at the highest speed to save energy costs - therefore not getting all these advantages.
I have heard lots of other advantages of using a washing line/umbrella type dryer however have never actually seen anyone pointing out the above.
This occured to me today as I hung out my - very damp - laundry in my lovely English garden on a fairly warm, breezy, very good drying day.
