An Unintentional Virtue
I did not mean to reduce my energy use during Lent as much as has turned out to be the case. But my dryer finally quit working, and the cost to have it repaired is too much to spend on an old appliance. So I brought in my summer clothesline and set it up in the basement, and I have been hanging up the wash. It doesn't come out quite as nice as if it were dried outside, but the sheets especially have a nice smooth crispness that they don't get from the dryer. I will buy a new one soon, but for now, I am doing just fine with this.
