    I hang everything out as much as possible. It's way too environmentally and financially detrimental to use a dryer all the time.

    Line dry, I think I have used the dryer twice in over a year. I love line drying. Love how nice the clothes feel after they have been line dried

    Dryer for everything. Only do 2 loads of washing a week on average.

    I don't have a dryer and don't need one. Im in Perth and its only rainy for a small part of the year. I like my clothes to dry in the sunshine and fresh air anyway. I like the smell.

    I don't own a dryer so hills hoist in summer and a mix of that, hanging space under cover and clothes airers in winter. We have a wood heater so that helps get everything dry quicker. For those that use the dryer what do you do about those pesky stains that the sun normally bleaches out?

    We have a washing line in part sun and one undercover. We bought a dryer a few months ago and honestly, I barely use it. And that's living in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne where it always seems to rain, and with 2 kids, one of whom is in cloth nappies. I found the dryer shrunk so much stuff the first time I used it, so I'm not a fan. I dry my nappies inside on a clotheshorse. Everything dries just fine.

    Dryer. All the time.
    Life's too short to fudge around pegging and unpegging crunchy clothes.

    Though I couldn't do it at my house anyway because we have one of the lines that folds out on the side of the house (so not height adjustable) and a crazy 18 month old labrador who would make a game of getting down as many clothes as he could.

    Yep, especially love the smell when it's bed sheets.

    I love the smell of freshly line dried clothes and sheets.

    My line dried clothes are never stiff.
