Hanging clothes outside is much better on the environment and the pocket-book. The energy saved can be put to better use. We have lived in Hawaii and have been tourist there. We would not be deterred by hanging laundry.

I would like to see one comunity ban dryers in the name of global warming. After all drying clothes on a line is not only more energy efficent, it would also add water to the air.

My husband actually put a diverter on the washing machine to is underground irrigation system for the lawn and on dry summer days our lawn is just as green as can be without running the sprinklers.

Water vapor accounts for the the largest percent of greenhouse effect and you want to add more.

People would be offended by seeing undergarments hanging on a laundry line? Get real! Do these people not go to department stores? Do they not go to beaches, where swimwear is nothing more than glorified underwear? I grew up in a house with a clothes line and it was great! Now I live in a high-rise and have to hang my clothes on hangars in my bedroom to dry. What I wouldn't give for a space to hang laundry in the sun and breeze to dry.

I will never, never, never live in Mililani or any other "master planned" community that restricts such things. It's petty.

Great idea diverting washing machine water. Is this a DIY thing? I'd like to try it! I'm seriously considering a ban on the clothes dryer as well.

We stayed at a time-share unit on Kauai, in Princeville, in January. Clotheslines with underwear wouldn't have bothered us nearly as much as the dozens of ROOSTERS that kept us awake at night.

Small minded suburban homeowner associations! What's worse, looking at some granny underwear or having water wash away our beaches (which is on target to happen---but measures like this, in aggregate, all around the world, could slow or eventually reverse it--)? No beaches? More hurricanes? Talk about "bad for tourism!"

PS skip the fabric softener while you are at it... just adds more chemicals to our wastewater that has to be taken out! We don't have static electricity here! why use it?

Living in a condo, I have manage to hang dry my clothes indoor for years. Besides being economical, it saves the environment from emissions that are sent into the atmosphere. I have tried to encourage other residents to do the same in my complex, but unfortunately, to no avail. Having a clothesline outside adds freshness to your clothes and saves the earth from unwanted pollutants. This is Earth Month, do something positive and give back!!!!!!!!

I've seen some pretty offensive underwear in my time. Stains from Hell, pukas, crust. Especially the women. I don't hang mine out as a service to humanity.

Erm... I was referring to going down on your knees in prayer. You know to save the planet and all.

This is awkward. Had I known you had such pent up issues I would have made my self more clear.

I will disregard the personal and unwarranted attack as a rant from someone who is of an unclear mind.

I normally do my praying standing up.

The other point is the planet has never needed saving from the likes of us. In truth we are more like a bunch of fleas on a dog. The problem is that some of the fleas theink that they can control the dog and make it go where we want. The smart ones realize that they are only along for the ride and the dog will go where a dog goes.

When dryers are outlawed -- only outlaws will have dryers.
