    Plenty do. When I lived in an apartment with no washer/dryer with my ex, we used to go to the laundry mat together every weekend and do the laundry together.

    Why do you direct this at just women? Men do laundry too. I am not what you call a "warmer" but my appliances are energy efficient. Not everyone can dry clothes outside year round and others aren't permitted to have clotheslines in their yards. There is nothing worse than drying off with a towel that is line dried. You might as well use 220 grit sandpaper. There is nothing worse than putting on a pair of jeans that baked in the sun to dry. There is no such thing as permanent press when it is lined dried which means more energy and time is needed to iron everything. But after this administration gets done dumping piles of new regulations through the EPA chasing carbon footprints, many are going to find it too expensive to pay to heat/cool their homes, do laundry, light their homes or even afford themselves a hot bath. By the time they get done regulating livestock to reduce their flatulence which will result in an increase for meat and dairy products and the increase in energy cost to process any of our food, many will struggle to be able to afford to eat. Idiots.

Since the typical annual electric bill is $900 and a refrigerator is responsible for only about 10% of that amount hen it is hardly the energy hog that you make it out to be.
    I'm sure the definition of "appliance" comes into play on some level. I don't think of a heater or a/c unit as an appliance.

    But I also included another link in another post which shows some other stats as well.

    Especially sheets. I used to love hanging the laundry...just being alone outside with my thoughts and establishing a little order in my world.

    Not that I know of. Don't they usually wear the same clothes over and over?

    I know that right now, where I live, if you hung anything white outside for more than about 5 minutes it would come back inside looking more greenish-yellow with all the pollen in the air.

    That might damn well kill half my family by causing us to drown in snot.

    Ewww. Good point though, the pollen is pretty bad this time of year if you're allergic.

    Hanging clothes on a line outside to get them DRY?

    What an odd practice. Where I live, that's usually a guaranteed way to get them thoroughly wet.
