Hang dry your clothes. Am I crazy for suggesting this in the winter? Not really. Your clothes line might be shorter in the winter, but wherever you wash your clothes, assuming you do so at home, hang a rope and dry your clothes. This is even easier if you have a drying rack. Air drying clothes saves a significant amount of energy (and some money), and if your home is like ours, you can use some extra humidity. If you can’t stand crunchy clothes, try tossing them in the dryer for 5 minutes once they’re dry–it will help soften them up.
