If you don't have a clothesline outside (or aren't allowed to have one), you can also install a one indoors, where no one can see it. Other options include a drying rack, hanging them on a clothes hanger, or hanging them over a door or the shower rod. Once you've decided to avoid the dryer, it won't take long for you to figure out some more inventive places to dry your clothes.
