its pretty straight forward, just clothes pin it to a line and let it dry. i do it to mine al the time. i avoid it in severe allergy season though

I hang all of my clothes. During the winter sucked because it took forever to dry but summer time I can get 3-4 loads dry a day

My grandmother used to hang dry my clothes on the weekends. They would smell soooooo good.

I hang them alot. Usually I take so long with washing the diapers that I throw them in the dryer (prefolds and inserts). But, I love it. We save money and it feels nice to do a chore outside.

I live in Western washington (near Seattle) where it rains TONS. but whenever the weather is good I line dry things. I love the smell, and the feel. :)

I hate the smell. Of course te backyard is dirt and grossness. It smells so gross. I do air dry my dd's bathing suit and towel though. Easier than going all the way to the dryer.

thats how I did it growing up... :) no tips here really... just make sure they arent wrinkly when you hang them or the wrinkles will set in :)

Our dryer sucks, so a lot of the time we put our clothes on hangers and hang them up around the apartment. Lol! I wish I had the space for a clothes line.
