Running the dryer, especially during the summer months, zaps a lot of power, raises energy bills, and increases the indoor temperature. Give your appliance, and yourself, a break by line-drying your clothes and sheets instead. Not only will you save money, but the reduced stress on your clothes and linens means they will look staying looking like new for longer. Choose a clothesline that can be installed indoors or out, like this one, and consider purchasing a convenient catchall for clothespins that can hang alongside your drying duds. Available on Amazon; $4.99.
