Does anyone have an estimate as to how many dollars might be saved per month if for the most part exclusively using a clothesline instead of an electric dryer? I know it's relevant to how many loads a family washes, cost of electricity in your area. And my clothes dryer is so old I couldn't even begin to put yr. to it, so I know it's not energy efficient. The clothesline at my new place is totlly shot. Not even the poles can be salvaged. I thought maybe just have a hypethetical figure of savings might help get other give us the inspiration to get on built sooner instead of later. I am so very excited. For the first time in my life I have a ground floor laundry room...straight through the back porch to the imaginary clothesline! Sure bets doing laundry in my former dungeon of an unfinished basement. Thanks for your thoughts.
