I always line dry. I am in Northern Brazil and we get over 300 days of sunshine. We are also a mecca for kitesurfers because of the wind.
To me these two things mean one thing. I can hang out my laundry.
I line dry when the weather is nice. When the weather isn't nice, I hang my clothes on drying racks indoors.
I actually like a combination. There is such a freshness to outdoor line-dryed clothes, but nothing beats the convenience and softness of tumbled items. I line dry most of my pants, exercise wear, and speciallty blouses and sweaters; however, I may toss the cotton items in the dryer for 5-10 min. to soften them before wearing. Line-drying does keep clothes lasting longer.
Depends on the weather! I prefer to tumble but like to save money when I can and dry outside, but I do so hate the way towels are so hard after drying in the hot sunshine.
Over a year though I would estimate about 70% is tumble.
Line dry, year around..............have not had a clothes dryer for many years..............
Would rather, that, they " freeze" on the line, than to pile up, dirty or stinking in the house.
