Clothes Dryer V Clothes Line
April 9, 2008 1:38pm CST
If you had the choice (say you needed a backyard) would you use the clothesline to dry your clothes or is it now too convenient to use the clothes dryer? Nothing nicer than clean sheets that have been blowing in the wind outside, they feel extra fresh on the bed. It's common to still use the clothes line in many countries but in some there is no sign of a clothes line anywhere! Is it time, is it no backyard, is it because you've never used a clothes line, is there too much pollution outside to get fresh sheets? Tell me what Town and Country you are from when you answer. For what it's worth clothes dryers drink electricity like coffee in a Java House. If you're wanting to save on power bills then maybe a clothesline is the answer.

I love the smell of clean washing that has been dried out in the sunshine and fresh air, but during the winter I have to put the laundry onto racks and dry it indoors. I don't like using dryers as they cost a fortune to run so when the weather is bad the racks come out and I place them near to the heaters to get clothes dry. Today is a lovely day and I have just put a load outside to dry.

It will always be a clothes line for me. I find the thought of pollution being a problem for people rather horrid. Energy consumption and costs for this appliance are prohibitive and I'm afraid many people use a dryer out of laziness, just my opinion. Besides the cost of using a dryer, I've found that the clothes and linen end up in the lint filter in a short space of time.
