Running the dryer wastes precious energy that can be conserved for other non-negotiable household tasks. Plus, you miss that delightful scent that comes with line drying clothes (the NYT did a feature on this phenomenon!). Here are our tips for how to line dry your clothes (including your favorite Printfresh PJ’s!)
• Use a vinyl or coated cord to hang clothes rather than cotton. A coated one can be easily wiped down to remove dirt and pollen so that it doesn't transfer to your newly-clean clothes.
• Shake clothes out before hanging them to help combat wrinkles.
• Hang items upside down to avoid visible clothespin marks. For example, hang t-shirts by their bottom hems.
• Take your clothespins inside when you’re finished with them. Wooden pins (our recommendation!) absorb excess water and pollen which can transfer to your clothes.
