Along with this comment, I have to say the quality of the clothes make a difference too.
I wash everything of mine inside out and on a gentle cycle, no matter what it is. Then I dont use the dryer, or almost never. When its windy or cold out, I hang my stuff on hangers in the bathroom to dry.

How do you get away with that in Brooklyn? I live in Texas and the weather is doable for clotheslines all year. I get the summer but the winter? Do the clothes freeze and you thaw them out in the house?

Right you are! If you do not sweat or spill something on your clothes, you can wear something twice without washing it. I will wear my "interview suit" to several interviews before it has to be washed. People tend to over-wash their clothing.

You can hang clothes out all year long here in Brooklyn. But in the dead of winter we have those clothes racks, and put them near the radiator, I do laundry at night, rack them and put them in the kitchen by morning they are dry, get folded and put away and no one ever sees them.

But yes, if we hang the clothes outside in the winter sometimes they will get frozen, but I just lay them on the table and in about 15 minutes they are ready to be folded.

Ugh, I really have this laundry down to a science....how scary is that???? LOL
