    We use our drier alot during winter as nothing dries otherwise. I find the kids clothes shrink in it though so they just spend days on the airer inside. One of the down sides of a cold, wet melbourne winter.

    In warmer weather everything goes outside pretty much

    Always the dryer. We don't even have a clothes line. Delicate stuff gets hung on a clothes horse inside.

    At my old house I would use the drier in winter because the line was always in the shade.
    This house I only use it if I'm a bit behind and DH needs a uniform for work at short notice The line here is huge and in full sun

    I live in the tropical north and don't have a dryer. However I think my anti-dryer stance might be tested during a wet season and with a small baby.

    Clothes dryer, I stopped using a line yrs ago when dh got rid of the hills hoist and got me one of those plastic line ones and in the heat it melted, that was 10 yrs ago. When we moved into our new house I used the clothes line for about 3 weeks then went back to the dryer. I thought I would save power but it didn't really make any difference and I average 2 loads a day thru the dryer. Unfortunately the dryer is wrecking my laundry so will be going to a condensing one next time. And I hate sun lines and fading when hanging the clothes outside, I can always pick outside dried clothes.

    I am super lazy so smalls and uniforms go in the dryer (so they don't need ironing) the rest on the line. I hate it when the kids put denim in the dryer.

    I use the dryer all year round, no need to iron, everything is soft & I have washing to do daily so I'm not going to spend my time at a clothes line every day, I also love the clean smell that goes through the house from the fluffy in the dryer!
