I save on utility bills by air-drying virtually ALL of my laundry. In good weather, I use my backyard clothesline (my environmentally friendly solar-powered dryer!). In bad weather, I hang items on a sturdy wooden folding clothes rack I bought at an auction. Most of the folding clothes racks available in stores now are not as sturdy, but they will still work just fine for lightweight items.
This is a great idea! I have an addition to it though. Instead of having drying racks all over the laundry room, I'm thinking of hanging up a couple of retractable clothes lines in there. Then when they aren't in use, I can just retract them and not mess with finding a place to store them.
I use an extra shower curtain rod in my bathtub. I hang wearing clothes on hangers and then hang them in the main bathroom. I usualy dry the clothes in the dryer for about 5 minutes or so first. I never thought of putting them in there later. I have also used my shower curtain with the shower curtain pulled all the way open. I have even put towels or such over the rod. And have pinned them to clothes hangers. I love to save money. I don't have a clothes line anymore. =( I do want one though. I may have to find me two trees close enough together to make myself one.
