More Laundry Savings
In my constant quest as a stay at home mom to find ways to be more frugal I came across another way to save in the laundry department. I learned today that on average it cost $.70 to dry one load of clothes. Our family typically washes and dries 2 loads of laundry a day. That is an average cost of $504.00 a year. Yikes! I found some great ways to make indoor clothes line for the basement. I also read about a family that just hangs all of their clothing up straight from the washer and lets it air dry in the closet. These sounded like good ideas to me, but I love the soft feeling a dryer gives to clothes and towels I don't really care for the crispy line dry feeling at all! But good news people, supposedly adding a 1/2 cup of white vinegar to your laundry load just as you would fabric softener gives your clothes the soft feeling regardless of how you dry. I will definitely be giving this a try! I love finding ways to save money....it makes me say ahhhh.
