Life Without a Dryer….. July 5, 2011

I’ve been dryer free for over two months now.  I still own a dryer, but it has never gotten hooked up since moving in to this home.

Do I mind you ask?  Not in the least.  In fact, I think it’s quite wonderful.

For years now I have wanted to get rid of my dryer, but haven’t been able to because I didn’t have the space for an indoor clothesline to line dry year round.  In this home, I do have the space.  Both indoors and out, I will have clotheslines.  (Huge thank you to a dear friend for the clothesline poles!)

The thing is, hanging out our laundry is a chore I actually like.  Shifting it from the washer to the dryer takes less time and effort, to be sure, but it just isn’t the same.  I like hanging it out, I like seeing our clothing hanging on the line, and I don’t even mind our towels being a wee bit crunchy at first.  It’s well worth it to me for the energy that we save by not using a dryer.

So tell me, what household appliance that we deem necessary in our modern society could you do without?

And, does anyone need a dryer?  Mine is taking up space where a nice big laundry sink could be…..

I definitely never miss the microwave. I encourage people to stop killing their food…
