It will come as no surprise to anyone who does laundry that one of the items that takes the longest to dry in a dryer is bath towels. After washing them and pulling the damp towels out of the washing machine, opt to let them air dry. It may take all day, but it accomplishes two great things: It uses zero energy to dry, and you'll help reduce wear and tear on both your dryer and your towels. Air dry over a banister or on a makeshift clothesline in your laundry room.
