Benefits of using a clothesline rather than a dryer

You won’t have to spend much time weighing the benefits of using these lines over a standard dryer.  Some benefits of using one of our Hills clothesline include:

  • Gentle on clothing – dryers will wear out fabrics more quickly because of the tumbling and tossing of your clothes in the machine.
  • Removes odour – sunlight helps kill the odour causing bacteria in fabrics and replaces it with the fresh smells of nature.
  • Saves energy – the dryer is the third most energy-consuming home appliance.  A clothesline will save you money and energy and won’t heat your house in the summer.
  • Safer – many Australians risk a house fire when they don’t empty their dryers lint filter after every use.  You don’t have to worry about the line when you switch to a clothesline.
  • No surprise wrinkles – You can leave you clothes on the line for extra time without worrying about wrinkles that your laundry would get while lying in a dryer.  No more getting stuck putting your clothes through a second dryer cycle or spending hours ironing.
