We have a washing machine here, but no dryer. If I had a choice, I would definitely do it the other way. Washing by hand is easy. Drying by line in a damp climate is difficult. The clothes come out a bit weird, and my line dry skills are not up to my daughters. I know how to do shirts and stuff we did when I was a kid...but I put too many pairs of underwear and socks on a hanger and they got dank. My daughter looked at me with such disdain!
Also, my bras will never be the same. The washer here does horrible things to underwiring.
