    Plus, it makes you sweat going out to hang them up.

    I also love that clothes last longer by not drying them in the dryer -- far less wear and tear!

    You are right. However, I often just find that I throw it in the dryer to do it quickly and get it over with. I thought what might be an idea is to buy an indoor wooden dryer I could store in my laundry room to hang some things. At least it would be an improvement from using the dryer for everything.

    They just smell so fresh

    Very true and the bending down to get clothes and then reaching over your head to hang them. Good for the abs.
