Why you should ditch your dryer: Top 8 Reasons to Line Dry your Washing

The team at Aussie Clotheslines believe line drying your washing is the way to go. Here's 8 reasons why!

1. Money Saving:

The sun and wind are free!
Dryers use more than nearly every other household appliance - almost 6-10% of a household's annual electricity consumption. Being conscious of ways to reduce reliance on using power is more important than ever with rising electricity costs!

2. Air Drying Considerably Extends the Lifetime of Your Clothes

We all know that tumble drying creates wear and tear on the fibres and weakens them. All that lint caught in the lint filter is from the fibres that are being gradually worn off the clothes being dried!

Woolen fabrics and other natural fibres lose their shape and should be dried flat on a drying rack to air dry so they retain their shape. Plus the heat of tumble drying can cause fading and shrinkage and damages elastic and delicate fabrics, especially garments made of Lycra, nylon, acrylic,polyester, viscose, and spandex.

3. Hanging Out the Washing is Therapeutic - seriously!

The act of hanging clothes on the line is relaxing and meditative - it’s a few minutes of peace with your thoughts.

4. Clotheslines are Ecofriendly:

Air drying is good for the environment - it reduces reliance on fossil fuels and minimises your carbon footprint.
The UV from sunlight naturally disinfects and brightens clothes by killing germs and bacteria without the use of harsh chemicals - especially important for items like baby clothes, sheets & towels. There is no need for drying sheets which are full of chemicals.

5. Line drying does not create static cling, as occurs with a tumble dryer.

6. Clothes smell fresh and clean.

7. Promotes Family Involvement - what a great activity to get the kids to help with!

8. Not to Mention the Heath benefits:

Get some exercise outdoors - bending down to pick up clothes from the laundry basket and raising your arms to hang them on the line - as well as all that fresh air and Vitamin D from the sun.
