While shopping online for a clothes dryer, I came across this interesting little tidbit from a government report released last year:
One in seven (14%) NSW households with an electric clothes dryer, reported never using it. Where households had access to an outdoor clothes line most used it.
That’s right, 1 in 7 Australians who own dryers never actually use them. And this doesn’t even account for those without a dryer at all, which according to the same government agency is merely half of them. Apparently, Australia is so enamored with hanging up clothes to dry, they even invented a new clothesline to improve their outdoor clothes drying experience.
