Okay, so today is laundry day and I just spent about 20 minutes hanging clothes to dry in my kitchen. (I have one of those drying racks) I hang jeans, bras, tshirts

I have clothes I air dry, too. Bras and sweaters mostly. I find the seem to hold their shape and look better longer, not to mention less shrinkage. And when the weather is nice and sunny, I'll hang my sheets out to dry once in a while; I love the way they smell after being out in the fresh air.

I put bedding, towels, table linens, cotton socks and underwear, t-shirts, woven shirts, and regular jeans/khakis in the dryer.

A new fleece I bought myself I let dry on a hanger...sometimes I dry clothes like that to save money.

I have a few newer t-shirts that dry real quick and I just hang them on those plastic hangers in my bathroom on my shower rod.

Even when I had a dryer of my own I still hung clothes up even in basement to dry.

I might put them in the dryer just to fluff them up or warm them up...:)

My fleece was ALMOST dry after taking it out of the washing machine.

It still looks brand-new!
