a headline popped up on my cnbc app that says trump is preparing to ban the sale of flavored e-cigarettes. so here some people are shocked that someone would suggest government ban dryers and yet so many people just sit idly by while the government bans things that it has no right to ban.

Dumb argument.
We have a gas dryer as well.

However, there is a small but growing movement to pan all gas appliances in new homes in CA.

And I don't want to get up at 5:00am have all my laundry washed by 7:00am on a Saturday so I can get it out on the line!

Modern conveniences are a godsend and allow me to make a very nice income rather than doing laborious chores that machines are far better suited for.

BTW, I live by a river with great rocks I use to beat my clothes on....no fancy electric washing machine for YOU!
Good Lord! Who pissed in your Cheerios?!?

Did I say to ban dryers? No, I did not. Just because I choose not to use mine all the time doesnít mean you canít! My post was not directed to you, it was a reply to the one I quoted.

Helpers: paid house staff. Neighbor kids? Good grief.

Why are you so outraged by one comment??!! Calm down

I don't buy the argument that people can't do this or don't have enough space in their house to hang them. Nope. That doesn't sound right.
Wet clothes hanging all over a home to dry, is so far out of date, and is not healthy.

My wife and I have had dryers for 70 years and would not do without.

I haven't read all these many pages but can't believe this thread has gone on this long - what a bizarre question!

I'm curious Ozzy, let's say I live in a one bedroom 500 sqre foot apartment. Just where exactly, should I hang mine and my families clothes? Am I allowed to use the laundry facilities in the apartment complex?
I wonder how he travels? By plane? hmmmm.

My goodness, I'm feeling luckier and luckier to have BOTH options - a dryer and plenty of room and sunshine outside to air dry when I prefer (which is often). OH - and the TIME to air dry if I want to. Because it does take more time.

My aunt lives in Louisiana. I will never forget visiting her for a few days in the late spring. It was plenty hot outside - but it was so humid it was ridiculous. I remember that she had some items hanging outside on the line and they were still WET at the end of the day, even though they were hanging in the sun and heat all day long.

My brother-in-law lived for several years, as a young man, right on the Gulf near the Texas/Louisiana border. He told me that every time he took a shower, he had to decide at what point to give up trying to dry off any more.

OMG that region is so humid it's ridiculous. I am used to humidity and it takes a LOT to even register with me so if I say, Wow, it's so humid out here - I mean it, it IS.

Louisiana and the coast of SC are two of the most humid places I've ever experienced. I was like "Lord, have mercy on me!"
