Save Your Money – Use a Clothesline
Looking for an easy way to quickly reduce your electricity bill?
It’s time for the return of the clothesline!
This simple switch will save you nearly 6% on your monthly electric bill according to the Department of Energy…plus your house will be quieter & cooler!
If your city or homeowners association prohibits clotheslines, your best option is a clothes drying rack (available at Target, Walmart and Bed Bath & Beyond for about $30). I use my drying rack until the clothes are almost dry, and then I pop them in the dryer for about 10 minutes to fluff them up.
So, let’s do the math…if your monthly electric bill is $200, your friend the clothesline just saved you about $12 a month & $144 a year!
