  • 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. - by CATIEMARIE

  • Very true and the bending down to get clothes and then reaching over your head to hang them. Good for the abs. - by KMOMA2
