    Nor are mine

    Last year we were in an apartment and used the dryer all the time as the communal washing line was inside :/

    I absolutely love my clothes line now! In winter things go on the clothes horse on the deck which is covered, but has great sun and wind through the sides so it dries super quickly

    Line dried, our dryer broke maybe a year ago. In a way I find it easier, because I sort as I hang them out and fold as I bring them down and then just put them away. Whereas with the dryer I wind up with Mt Foldmore stashed away in a bedroom.

    Both. Line in Summer, dryer in Winter. Plus we have two airers that we sit over our heating vents.

    I live somewhere cold and wet during Winter so a drier is a must.

    Undies, socks and small bits go in the dryer. Clothes I hang on a clothes horse out in the sun for a few hours and they're dry! If its raining I just dry the clothes inside the laundry on the clothes horse. Clothes (pj's or singlets are the exception) never go in the dryer here. They shrink too much! Plus I like the way line dried clothes smell so fresh and clean

    Line dry as much as possible, it's attached to the side of the house on the veranda and gets heaps of sun and wind.

    I try not to use the dryer but will during winter if all the airers (sp?) are full or if I realise at 10pm there is no clean school uniforms.

    ETA: clothesline is heaps cheaper, too!

    Dryer for towels, sheets, jocks and socks.

    I will sometimes use the dryer for some clothes, but I am paranoid about shrinkage. My DH is 6'7" and even a little shrinkage will often ruin clothes for him and out they go.

    How does everyone decide what is ok for the dryer? Am I being overly paranoid?

    Line dry as much as possible, most of my stuff I don't like to put in the dryer cos I'm worried it will shrink, go out of shape etc

    Don't own a dryer so very thing gets hung out. Even when it's raining it will either go on an inside clothes horse or per rope hung under the patio lol

    I would love a dryer. I was brought up to think they are bad bad so never even considered one. In winter we hang rope under the alfresco so I can still hang washing when it's raining. No issues with that at all. Or big thick jumpers and towels drape over chairs inside.
    Always thought dryers were super expensive to run
