    Smile Finally decided to line dry clothes.

    The other day after I washed a load of laundry I took out three heavey sweaters and put them on the back of the chair to dry naturally. It only took over night to dry. I thought with my heat being so low it would take forever to dry. Was shocked, especially with the sweaters being bulky that it took only one day for them to dry. Another way to save on my heating and electric bill!

    Sweaters are supposed to lie flat - the weight of the wet sweater will stretch them out. I usually lie them on towels on the floor.
    First you roll the sweater in a towel (think jelly roll) and then kneel all over it to squish out as much water as you can.
    Lie flat then flip sweater over when the top seems dry.

    Wait till you see your electric bill...You'll love the savings! Plus, your clothes are going to last longer and they won't fade as fast.
