by Jessica Miller (Emery Street) | This column provides tips on reducing waste while saving money.

The weather has been gorgeous, and besides lovely picnics and bike rides, our family has also made the most of it by line-drying our clothes and diapers. We use a retractable clothes line similar to this one. We bought it from True Value on East Clairemont.

There are many things to love about line drying one’s clothes:

  • Saving energy
  • Clothes smelling like the sun (wrap yourself in sun-dried sheets at night
    and you’ll understand what I mean)
  • A free extra cleaning: the sun is a natural disinfectant and stain remover
  • Hanging laundry is quite relaxing.
