On a busy Monday morning it’s tempting to throw the clothes into the dryer. Hanging them on racks in the spare room (it’s below zero degrees F. outside) just takes too long. But I compromise, because I know it’s silly and wasteful to dry heavy clothes with fossil fuel derived electricty when they’ll dry just fine without it. I hang ‘smalls’ on the little rack over the dryer (see photo), put big heavy things in a basket to go to the spare room rack, and toss the rest of the smaller, lighter items into the dryer for a very short cycle. Not perfect, I know, but okay for today.
