    Sun if possible. Dryer if not.

    I will often give the bed linen 30 mins in the dryer to get rid of lint.

    I line dry as much as I can. Which is hard when you liven in an apartment with no washing line! So really what fits on the clothes horse. We also live in Melbourne so I tend to do every second load in the dryer just because there's no room to hang it.
    I feel horribly guilty using it though. We managed at our old place without one, but we only had one kid then, and a living room that got gorgeous winter sun all day.

    I only use my dryer when the weather is bad or we get back from a camping trip with mountains of feral clothes. I live in qld so don't have to use the dryer much but I LOVE the fact that it's there if I need it

    I line dry everything. I have a dryer and have used it once since I got it. It's good for those days where it won't stop raining.

    I prefer line drying, the sun brightens up whites and everything smells cleaner!

    We don't even own a dryer. I use the clothes horse if the weather sucks and if I get absolutely stuck I use my parents.

    I hang as much as I can on hangers to dry and then towels etc on the clothes horse and the rest in the drier.

    I have a dodgy shoulder so the clothes lines in not an option for me (causes too much pain) also I find hanging on hangers they don't need an iron and so easy to get everyone to put their clothes away.

    Dryer in winter. Hubby makes us use the line in summer. He tried to force the line thing in Winter too but got sick of brining in clothes at 6pm still damp.

    I use the dryer for everything cos our clothesline is inside our cat enclosure and the enclosure is covered in shade cloth so hanging clothes would be pointless.
