Everyone in our house does their own laundry. My wife will sometimes do mine for me, but by and large we're all responsible for doing our own laundry and we use an electric dryer - our local power is generated by fossil fuels.
When I was a kid we my mom hung the laundry by a clothesline that stretched from her bedroom window to the telephone pole in our backyard. I don't have a convenient place for a line in the yard and even if I did I'd still use the dryer, it's just easier.
Actually afaik no one around here hangs their clothes on lines.
Yeah it's wasteful but I make up for it a little by not really using the car all that much. Between my wife and I combined we average about 50 miles/week driving.

It would appear retirement has some thinking of smirky things to bring to the rest of us... perhaps there is some truth to the old saying- 'idle hands are the Devil's playmates'.
I suppose 'real' women are those who are at home long enough during the day to hang laundry to dry vs those who have a job during the sunny hours. Maybe 'real' women are those who live in Appalachia out beyond the power lines.
Course to an old coot laying in his hammock the amount of energy a dryer uses may seem large, others may see the use of single occupant vehicles clogging the highways everyday to haul office workers to and fro the cities they fled as a far bigger 'warmer' issue. Perspective....
I thought warm women was code for big women.
It would be interesting to see if women believe in climate change more then men though.
...and yet, sawyer decides to single out only females who use a freaking clothes driers? Men use them too, along with all the other things I've listed.
Just another one of sawyer's "women are bad because [fill in the blank]" threads. Nothing to see here. Move along.
