DailyDish: Drip dry the easy way
Filed under: Chores
Just because you have a dryer doesn't mean you should always use it.Some clothes last longer and look better if they are hung up to dry. But drip-drying needn't involve lugging a heavy basket of wet clothes to the backyard laundry line. Instead, install a tension-type shower curtain rod above the washer and dryer and slide on some sturdy, plastic hangers (don't use metal hangers - they can leave rust spots on your clothes). When you pull something delicate or shrink-prone from the washer, it only takes a moment to hang it up to dry. And because the rod is over the dryer, your clothes will warm up and dry much faster than they would hanging elsewhere.
Start by teaching him that it is safe to do so.
