Hang your laundry out to dry
Install a washing line outside if you can and use it in fine weather. You’ll save energy – dryers are one of the energy hogs in your home, accounting for maybe 6% of an average fuel bill, or $20 to $50 per month, depending on the size of your family. As well as saving money and energy, remember that UV light from the sun whitens and sterilizes naturally, and laundry dried outside smells great, naturally, so you won’t need so many additives in your wash. Your clothes should last longer, as tumble drying heats and beats the fibers, wearing things out over time. As a side benefit – you get a little more exercise, bending and lifting, so you get to tone your abs and arms while helping the environment.
