Drying your clothes can be a time-consuming and energy-intensive task. But it doesn't have to be! With a few simple tips, you can reduce both the time and energy needed to get your clothes dry and ready to wear. So whether you want to save a few minutes or a few euros, read on to learn how to dry your clothes more efficiently.

1. Hang your clothes to dry whenever possible

Hanging your clothes to dry is the best way to keep their shape and avoid wrinkles. It is also the most energy-efficient drying method as it does not require electricity. If you don't have access to an outdoor line, hang your clothes indoors on a drying rack or over the shower curtain rod.

If you are looking for a way to speed up the drying of your clothes, a heated drying rack could be the answer. These electric drying racks are heated to make your clothes dry faster. They are a great option if you have a lot of laundry to do or if the weather is bad and it takes too long to dry clothes outside. Plus, in winter it feels great to pick a warm shirt right off your rack and put it on. We have the perfect model for you!

2. Avoid overloading the dryer

5 Tips on how to save time and energy when drying your clothes

If you do have to use a dryer, avoid overloading it. An overloaded dryer will take longer and won't dry your clothes evenly. It is better to do several small loads than one big load. Want to speed up the process even more? Then also put a dry towel or tea towel with your wet laundry. These will absorb moisture, making your entire load dry even faster.

3. Set the timer for shorter drying cycles

Most people forget to put their clothes in the dryer until they are already wrinkled and too dry. To avoid this, set a timer for shorter drying cycles, so you can take your clothes out while they are still damp and hang or fold them immediately. This will not only save you time, but also prevent your clothes from being damaged by the heat and you also have to go to great lengths with the iron to get all those wrinkles out.

4. Use lower heat settings

5 Tips on how to save time and energy when drying your clothes

Besides setting a timer, you can also dry your clothes on a lower heat setting. High heat settings can damage delicate fabrics and cause colours to fade over time. If you are not sure which heat setting to use, consult the care label on your garments before putting them in the dryer.

5. Clean the filter/lint trap after each use

5 Tips on how to save time and energy when drying your clothes

A clogged lint trap/filter causes your dryer to work harder and use more energy than necessary. To prevent this, clean the lint trap/filter after each use by removing the lint with a paper towel or a hoover. At least once a year, clean the vent pipe leading from the back of the dryer to the outside to remove any accumulated lint there too.

So drying your clothes doesn't have to be a tedious task! By following these simple tips, you can save time, energy and money!
