National Hanging Out Day

I admit, I love my dryer. Though some would assume that since I run a clothespin business I wash all my clothes by hand and hang dry them all… well, that is not the case. I wash all my clothes in my washer  (thankful for it every time) and when it isn’t pouring down rain I hang all of my bigger, heavier items (such as towels, blankets, and jeans) on the line.

When we started selling clothespins I ran into National Hanging Out Day. It is a day to encourage people to conserve energy by using the natural dryer… sunshine! (Though drying your clothes inside on a line works well too.)

Some interesting facts about dryers and energy consumption:

  •  Dryers are one of the largest energy users in our homes and represent 2 percent of our nation’s entire electricity consumption.
  •   Today’s typical electric clothes dryer sometimes consumes as much energy per year as a new energy efficient refrigerator, clothes washer, and dishwasher combined.
  • A typical household pays over $100 in annual utility bills to operate an electric dryer and $40 for a gas dryer. Homes with electric dryers pay at least $1,500 over the dryer’s lifetime for the electricity to power the machine.


I know I will be taking the time to dry more outside this year. With wonderful clothespins and the joy of knowing I will be saving money, the job will be very enjoyable.
