Line drying laundry is one of those luxuries not everyone can afford, because it isn’t exactly something you can do in a tiny apartment. If you’re one of those lucky enough to live in their own home, here’s why you should give it a try.


If you’re trying to make a small contribution towards saving the environment, line drying your clothes is a good place to start. This technique promotes energy conservation, and it will help you save a lot of money on your utility bills.

Great Exercise

Putting your clothes inside a dryer requires no effort at all. Line drying, on the other hand, will keep you active – especially if you’re doing it outside. Studies have shown you can burn almost 70 calories after 15 minutes of hanging laundry or removing it from the line.

Fresh Clothes

This drying technique can enhances freshness and help remove strong odors from your clothes. It can also prolong life span of your favorite items because it’s much gentler on clothing than a dryer and it will never cause irreversible damage to your favorite shirts and pants.
