WFMW - Line Drying Towels

Do you line dry towels and find them rather stiff and abrasive? Well, I learned a trick from my mom. Throw them in the dryer for about 10 minutes on the no-heat setting, THEN hang them on the line. Ten minutes is enough to fluff them up and remove the wrinkles from the spin cycle and you still get the sweet smell of line drying and you've still reduced your energy usage.

Check out what works for others at the Works For Me Wednesday home: Rocks In My Dryer.

Yes - I do this, too! I always loved the smell of linens coming in from the outdoors, but I hated the stiff crunchiness. Love this tip!

Ok, you're a genius. I love to line dry my stuff, mostly cuz it's thrifty and I feel like Caroline Ingalls, but I really dislike when my towels feel like sandpaper and will barely bend to be folded. Can't wait to try this, thanks!
