$$ Savings Tip
According to the U.S. department of Energy and numerous other sources, annual costs of operating a clothes dryer can vary from $85.00 to $300.00 depending on your personal situation including number of household occupants and type of energy used to operate your dryer.
Typically, your natural solar or air dryer will pay for itself in less than one year. Your clothes will last longer and benefits to the environment are incalculable.
