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.
    Yeesh, that's another great point. Towels tend to get hard when line dried, even sometimes in the dryer without fabric softener. I just love my fabric softener. What can I say? I'm a modern girl.

    Um... don't men do laundry in your world? I thought that was just being a grown-up.

    Anyway, I do hang dry when it's not below freezing, and I did all the time when I lived in places where it rarely freezes. I also pay all of my electric money to wind power. I can't choose where my power comes from, but I can choose who gets my money.

    Why do you assume we don't do things to lower our carbon footprint? That's about as stupid as assuming only women do laundry.

    Yeah, with all the big trees that overhang my house and the caterpillars, my clothes would be stained brown from the caterpillar poop. It's really disgusting and it gets over everything. Also, my yard area is WAY too small. A clothes line with a bunch of clothes hanging out there would just look ghetto. Not practical for me in my current situation and location.

    So only women do laundry?

    No. At least according to anyone who is 50+.

    I do laundry. I use my almost brand new dryer to dry the clothes. I don't even have clothes pins, or a clothes line.

    I knew some college students who would mail their soiled clothes to their mothers.
