Today's Energy Thought

Second only to the refrigerator which consumes the most energy of household appliances, which of these uses the most energy?

A) Hair dryer
B) Clothes dryer
C) Microwave oven
D) Computer

If you regularly read this blog, the answer has been addressed in previous postings so you should get this one correct. Scroll down to check your answer...

B) Clothes dryer

Whenever possible, air dry your laundry outdoors on a clothesline or use a drying rack indoors. Not only do you save energy and money but you also reduce your impact on the environment as well. Another option is to only partially dry your clothes in the dryer and then hang them to dry completely or hang them first and finish drying them in the dryer. These two options help with the crunchiness factor when air drying. Take advantage of the warm summer air while you can!
