Works for Me Wednesday: Saving Energy
What we're doing is to hang our clothing on wooden drying racks that we place in front of our radiators at night. By the next morning the clothes aren't just dry, they're warm and cozy from being right in front of the heat all night long. We have a drying rack in the upstairs bathroom and a second one in the downstairs hall. With those two dryers, we can do two loads of laundry a day, which enables up to keep up with the dirty clothes piles.
Sheets have proven a bit of an issue, since they're so huge and all, and those we hang outside on our screened in front porch on clothes lines I put up just for this reason. They are NOT warm and comfy when they come off the line, but if you want to make up the beds with brand new clean sheets, you can fold them and place them atop a radiator for an hour, and they're dry and warm and welcoming.
This works for me, and has markedly cut my gas bill! Stumble It! JBlog Me
