Frugal and Green Tip of the Day: Hang your clothes and save them!

Another reason to hang your laundry: Hanging your laundry not only saves you money on energy by not running your dryer - it also saves you money on clothing!
You know all that lint in your lint screen? Yup - it’s your clothes, falling apart, right in front of your eyes! Who knows - maybe that’s where the other sock goes to die…it doesn’t disappear, it just disintegrates into lint!
Hanging your laundry is also a great way to “bleach” your clothes without using bleach. I have hung stained whites on the line and been surprised to find them bleached and stain-free when I come back to take them down later in the day. The sun has bleached - and sanitized - my clothes for me and it didn’t cost a dime.
This is also a great way to keep cloth diapers fresh and clean.
