I have been almost completely dryer-free for about 1 month, turning it on for probably 20 minutes total during that time. My husband put up a clothes line, which started the dryer weaning. Before the clothes line installation, I abused my dryer usage, turning it on for almost any and all things washed.
I abuse my clothes line usage, hanging up any and all things washed. I even put socks and *gasp* underwear on the drying rack, mostly out of the view of neighbors. (Except for when a certain four year old grabs my bright blue undies and wears them around her waist, parading outside for all to see while I cook dinner inside. That day, everyone knew all about my undies.)
I don't do laundry on rainy days...it just piles up until the next sunny-skies day and is usually clean-dry-done by dinnertime. Yeah, the "piling up" gets to me, but it's a small price to pay for a lower electric bill and a feeling of accomplishment. I love having a clothes line so much that my handy Hubby installed not just one clothes line, but three.
Don't ask me what I'm going to do in the winter. I don't want to think about it yet.
