Money Saving Tips: Hang Dry Wet Clothes

Are you looking for some simple ideas to save money? We have simple solutions that you can easily apply to your lifestyle to save money!

 Hang drying your clothes will not only save you money on drying [laundromat or at home] but it will keep your clothes looking newer and brighter for longer.  Drying machines can be harsh on fabrics and make them wear out more quickly.

 If you don’t have a drying rack, consider hanging your clothes on hangers and hanging them somewhere in open air.  I actually mostly do this because by the time my clothes are dry, they’re already on the hangers and ready to go in my closet.

happy hanging.

    I have been doing this for years now, and my kids clothes look so much nicer because of this, they don’t shrink as much or fade, love it!!! I do dry jeans,pants, underwear, and socks because they seem rough if I don’t. But I always run out of room when I dry my clothing, so I have two separate drying racks now.

    I have used a drying rack ever since I was in college (started in 2000). I don’t dry any of my shirts, sweaters or pants (except jeans, since I hate that wet jeans smell, plus I sometimes need them to shrink a little bit). I’m mostly concerned about things shrinking on me since I have a long torso and long arms and legs, but saving money is also great!

    I do not have a drying rack, and cannot put up a clothes line in the yard…but I hang anything and everything that can be put on a hanger and use our shower curtain rod! Works great and the same concept… also, when you purchase jeans/pants from the store, tell the Cashier that you want to KEEP THE CLIPPY HANGER! Those are perfect for handing jeans to dry!!
