Summer is arriving around the country – and the sun is out! Take advantage of the goodness and power of the summer sunshine to green some of your daily activities.
Try using a clothesline or drying rack instead of the dryer!
Air-drying your laundry has numerous advantages:
- Energy savings from not using your dryer is great for the environment— and can lead to a considerable decrease in utility bills for many households.
- Less wear and tear on your clothes. Cycling around through the dryer takes its toll on fabric fibers!
- Sunlight acts as both a bleach and disinfectant. Get your whites whiter and your clothes fresher.
- Gets you out in the sunshine, which can improve your mood and your health. But take care to protect your skin from the sun’s rays with our Safer Sun Tips.
