Utilise sunny and
windy days to
dry your clothes
According to energy.gov.au, clothing dryers can account for up to 10% of household energy. You can reduce your energy bills and environmental impact by line-drying your clothing all year round – even in winter.
Take advantage of sunny days by hanging your clothes outside in a place with plenty of sun and air circulation. On days when the sun is behind the clouds, the wind can speed up the drying process by evaporating moisture. Remember to rotate your clothes every few hours to ensure thorough and effective drying.
If you are drying inside, ensure it’s in a well-ventilated room. As a safety precaution, if you dry your clothing inside, be cautious, as the moisture can lead to mould growth which can impact your health.
