The Merits of Line Drying

Toss out all your old notions on airing out laundry! Clean laundry that is. Once a symbol of the impoverished, air drying clothing is now viewed with an approving nod and a quick thumbs up. Why the change of heart? Let us review.

Environment: As we become increasingly aware of our impact on the earth, it is important to realize how much every little bit helps. By line drying you can reduce your carbon foot print by .4 tonnes of CO2 emissions annually.

Budget: Speaking of every little bit helps, an average load of laundry cost $.34 to dry. Just think about those days when the dryer is running non-stop. It add up fast!

Clothing: Every give thought to that lint build up on the screen? That's a fine layer of your clothing! By line drying your clothes you will drastically extent the life of your garments. Color, size and shape will stay true, and you won't get those nasty lint balls all over.

Psyche: Aside from the good feelings you'll have for saving energy, money and the integrity of your clothing, line drying also gets you outside in the fresh air which can do wonders for the soul. A little sunshine goes a long way on those rough days.

So there you have it, the merits of line drying. Now get yourself a clothes line, rack or even just use a lawn chair and join the trend.
