Any tips for preventing stiff clothes when drying outdoors?

Text:

When it's 100 degrees outside I just could no longer put my clothes in an electric dryer so I got a clothes line.  Only problem seems to be that they are stiff when dried and the towels are scratchy (like a cheap motel).  I am using the same Tide detergent and Downey fabric treatment like always.  What do I need to change?

'''Justification for why this is repair-related:'''

# Drying clothes outside reduces wear on them, make them last longer.
# I think this goes with the spirit of the site in green energy use.
