Back when laundry was harder to wash and dry, people just did it less often, had less clothes, and had a different relationship with body odour from the current one(s). Rich folk would have a fire-powered drying room of some sort in cold/wet countries.

I don't think of the refrigerator as an appliance, although of course it is. To me, in this world, it's an essential necessity, period. To me an appliance is something that you could live without. I know that's a pretty idiosyncratic definition, but it's my own. What can I say. So in the category of appliance I value, I'd put the TV

You are assuming clothes dryers and all of those things use energy only generated by pollution producing methods?
All energy produces pollution, no? According to the Aussies every wash load sent around in a dryer pumps 3 kilograms of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere so here's <--- what youse should all be doing. Oh, make sure you use a cold wash as well because heating the water for a hot wash pumps out another 4 kilograms.
