Sometimes there isn’t enough of a color or wash type in our wardrobes to create a full load….we will then wash these on the smallest load that the machine can do. So I guess technically that is a full small load. 🙂 I miss having a clothesline. I always loved the smell and freshness of clothes off the line.

My washer puts water in based on the size of load (determined by weight?), but I do prefer to run full loads.

During the summer, I love drying our clothes, towels, and sheets on our clothesline. Bonus: the UV rays help to get rid of stains!

My washer only uses as much water as the load needs. I also line dry a lot of my clothes.

I hang clothes to dry when possible and use dryer balls to reduce drying time in the dryer.

I have some clothes that are polyester (i.e. sports clothing, dress-up blouses) that I hang on hangers on the shower rod–they dry very quickly. I also hang/lay flat merino wool and cotton items.

I upgraded my washer and dryer. My washer sense the amount of water it needs for the load. It has saved me money on my water bill too.

I have a solar dryer. I use it with clothes pins. I love using the sun to dry clothes & it helps to remove stains.
