Frugal Friday: Less Drying Time
Most of the time, it doesn't make that much difference and the load still gets dry. Other times, it may need a bit more time.
After you do this for a while, you will start to notice exactly how much time it really takes to dry the laundry instead of just setting it for the same time as you always have.
Sometimes, especially with towels or jeans, everything will be dry except for a few pieces. Instead of restarting the dryer for just a couple items, I'll take them out and hang them over a chair, on the shower curtain rod or on a hanger. It doesn't usually take that much time for them to dry and it saves a little electricity, too!
Even though I line dry most of our laundry, I still dry towels and the occasional load of clothes on extra busy days. Using the dryer for less time and less loads saves me money in the long run!
