I'm going to stop talking in the third person now.
You cannot suggest something to me (even indirectly) without expecting that I do exactly what you suggest. Please, don't use this against me. : )
For this reason, I pretty much only read one blog (other than friends and family). And even on that blog, I pretty much only read one author's posts.
And, to my admission, I pretty much do everything she suggests.
So, anyway, this is about my decision to line dry. Which basically means this is about Tsh's suggestion to Line Dry.
In all seriousness, I have loved line drying my clothes. Here are my reasons:
The smell! Oh, the smell!
Seriously, I would rather have a freshly line dried shirt than a bouquet of flowers. Not even kidding you. When I walk outside to pick our clothes off the clothes-line, I breathe deep. I think I love the smell even more because we've been using soap nuts to wash our clothes naturally. Because it's natural, there's no smell, which is a good thing. But there's something about smell that convinces us of cleanliness, you know?
I actually do care about the environment, but I probably care more about our budget. And we definitely save some dough by not using our dryer. Enough said.
Laundry has a little more life to it.
Knowing that it might rain that evening is good motivation to get our clean clothes off the line. Motivation is something that I need, considering I tend to leave our clothes in the dryer or unfolded until my husband decides to do something about it. With line drying, I have to deal with the laundry today.
I love being outside, and I don't get nearly enough of it. Therefore, if the only reason I go outside on any given day is to get my wonderful smelling laundry, I'm okay with that.
Finally, I have one warning for you. You may end up looking down at this at the end of the day:
