When washing something that has to be air-dried, or thick materials that take a long time in the dryer (denim, heavy towels), run them through the spin cycle of your washer and extra time before taking them out of the washer. Just turn the knob to the "Spin" part of the dial and start it.
I found that my air-dry items dry twice as fast, and my dryer runs almost half as long with things that usually take forever. You use less energy running the spin cycle for an extra five minutes that using the dryer for an extra 20-30 minutes!
