Did you know that the dryer is the most energy consuming appliance in most homes. The typical load of laundry costs approx. 50 cents a load to dry. If you do 2 load a day, that is $30.00 a month saved off your electric bill. If you like your clothes to be a little softer after drying outside, you can toss them in your dryer on the wrinkle release cycle. The picture of the above clothes line can be bought at Lowes for $50.00, there are many clothes lines available though.
