We all know that hanging the laundry on a clothesline is a great way to save money, and that's great on sunny warm days, but what do you do the rest of the time? I couldn't even use my drying racks that much, because I didn't have fires going all the time in the stove. I will admit that last month with the amount of rain that we had here, my dryer was used WAY more than I like. I realized that once my power bill came in. Between the dryer and the dehumidifier going from the wood coming in, it went up $25!
What about in the winter, what do you do for your laundry? I can remember my mom hanging it out on a sunny winter day when the temperature got above zero. I do the same, but the rest of the time it is mostly my dryer.
I also use drying racks around my wood stove. Not only does it help lower the drying costs, it increases the humidity, something that is desperately needed in the winter in our home. I just pop it in the dryer for 5-10 minutes before it goes on the rack to get rid of the lint and get the fabric softener going through it as I don't have the nice Island wind in my home to take it all off.
Tell me, do you have any laundry secrets that we can use to save some money? We would love to hear from you.
Enjoy your day!
