Yes, when the weather is nice (sun out, temps above 50 degrees) I hang out our laundry - have been asked by family members NOT to hang underwear outside, so I usually hang that in the garage with the door open :-)  Cuts back on electricity usage and clothes are so nice when they come off the line - I do use an unscented fabric softener in the wash when I line-dry though because without it, things get stiff

I don't right now because I live in an apartment, but when I get in my house I will again, I usually even make an area in the basement to hang them in the winter. It's a great way to cut back on the utility bills. Some things, like jeans and towels, I will throw in the dryer for a few minutes to soften them up after they are dry.
