A lot has already been written about the virtues of hanging clothes up to dry. It saves a lot of money. I did this for months when my dryer broke a few years ago.

An old friend once told me that dryers make clothes wear out faster. It is better to hang them up.  So, I tried. 

I have been paying off a bankruptcy for 3 and a half years, for most of that time, our clothing budget was zero. We got yardsale items, and the occasional item for a dollar on a big box clearance rack.

And because I hung most underwear up to dry, it lasted. I also hung up jeans, leggings,  and any top with a printed graphic on it. You really can extended the life of clothing by skipping the dryer.
