I did a small article about washing machines a day ago. While washing machines are pretty common in most Indian homes, oddly enough we don’t seem to be much in the market for dryers. But I think slowly they are gaining some headway into the consumer market and I can see more and more stores, online and physical, selling them. And they don’t seem to be as costly as they used to be. And like all such appliances you need to find a good dryer repair place incase something needs to be fixed.
Why have dryers taken so long to catch on in India? Cost seems to be a factor. The only people I know who have washers in their home and both from really rich families. Everyone else I know dry their clothes the old fashioned way. Drying your clothes in the sun and wind outside on a clothes hanger. But like I said that is changing and more and more middle class families are thinking about getting a dryer. This is mainly true for couples and families who live in apartment complexes for the most part.
To be honest drying clothes in an apartment is a difficult thing. It also is messy and creates a damp atmosphere inside the home. It also depends on how your apartment is, if it has a decent sized balcony or a room with enough windows so that drying clothes doesn’t make your room stuffy and damp. So if you have a larger family, investing in a dryer may make sense.
