A clothing dryer at home takes up about 6 percent of your home’s total electricity usage. A very easy way to reduce that and save electricity is to line-dry your clothing. But that doesn’t have to mean running a line in the backyard at all. For smaller loads, wash clothes and spin-dry them to remove as much water as possible. Then simply hang the clothing on hangers and let it air-dry overnight inside. During the winter months, the warm, arid atmosphere inside expedites drying. One benefit: Most clothing will air-dry wrinkle-free.
