Air Dry Your Clothes


Take advantage of warm summer days and give your dryer a break: Hang your clothes outside to dry on laundry days. If possible, do your laundry at night to avoid peak electric-use hours, and only run the washer when it is full. Use cold water in the washing machine, with cold water detergent. If you do use the dryer, be sure to clean the lint filter and make sure the exhaust vent is clean.
