If its more than half a sandwich, I think theres some game here.
We use Khan's method and neither I nor my scale can recommend it as an effective weight-loss method. Nothing stirs the appetite like the vigor of outdoor laundry-hanging!
But if you were to calculate the benefits, would you include the caloric requirement of earning the money to buy a new dryer every 8 years (This seems to be the part completely left out by gas/electric/air drying comparisons)?
I'd just love a washer and dryer that actually FIT into our laundry recess in the hall, instead of sticking their ugly white noses out just far enough to stub our toes...
I've had several good experiences with appliance salespeople (including a Home Despot worker who came in early on her shift to make sure I got the exact microwave/hood range I wanted, and had it ready for me to go at the front of the store so I didn't have to drag kids all around, bless her).
