Doing laundry is a two-step process. While washing may take a little amount of your time, drying is process that takes hours and even days when the weather outside is humid or cold. Dryers ensure that clothes get dried almost instantly-along with saving your electricity and eventually money over a period of time. Nothing feels as great as wearing freshly washed clothes that are just out of the dryer. Before buying a dryer for home, make sure you have enough space to store it. With a number of features available in the market, choose one that is the best pick for your needs and also pick a good appliance repair service.
Many dryers consist of a rotating drum called a “tumbler” through which heated air is circulated to evaporate the moisture, while the tumbler is rotated to maintain air space between the articles. Using these machines may cause clothes to shrink or become less soft (due to loss of short soft fibers/lint). A simpler non-rotating machine called a “drying cabinet” may be used for delicate fabrics and other items not suitable for a tumble dryer.
Drying at a minimum of 60 °C (140 °F) heat for thirty minutes kills many parasites including house dust mites, bedbugs and scabies mites and their eggs; a bit more than ten minutes kills ticks. Simply washing drowns dust mites and exposure to direct sunlight for three hours kills their eggs.
