I will only run my electric dryer at nighttime. I also hang clothes on a line in my basement to dry if I don't hang them outside. They dry relatively quickly. My grandmother lived her entire life without ever having a dryer. All of her clothes were hung either inside in a dry basement room or almost always outside. You can't beat the smell of clothes hung outside on the line. This is a scent people are becoming less and less familiar with due to the convenience of just throwing everything in a dryer.
