I have to admit a few things here though...I am not hardcore. I had a neighbor in my old house who would hang her clothing out year round, I think the pants were able to walk back to the house by themselves in the month of January. I give up my line dried linens about the first part of November, or whenever it begins to get a little too crisp in the air.
I also don't have an affinity for crunchy denim or bath towels. I have yet to figure out how to combat this one so denim and towels still get tossed in the dryer.
I will share though that a diligent comparison of electric bills does help fuel my passion, I save an average of $20 a month from Spring through fall by just hanging my clothes on the line.
Then, there is also the simplicity of it all...
Clothes hanging on the line during a sun-filled beautiful day. I smile just watching the clothes wave in the wind. I don't know why, it is so simple really but it makes me happy. I don't have the newest and fanciest washer and dryer, but I am happy with the ones I have and the line that my husband built me out back to hang them on.
