Tips for Drying Your Laundry

Check out these quick tips for drying laundry from!


  • If you’re in a rush for a load of laundry to dry–try tossing a clean, thick cotton towel in the dryer with the wet clothes. The towel will absorb some of the moisture and clothes will dry faster. If it’s a large load of laundry, throw in two or three towels.
  • If clothes have been left in the dryer too long and are wrinkled, toss in a clean, wet towel (not dripping wet–wring out excess water first) and turn the dryer on for 15 minute intervals until wrinkles are no longer a problem.
  • Drying knits, sweaters and denims inside out can help prevent fading as well as pills developing on the clothes (especially helps with knits and t-shirts). If a garment is pilling, try firmly brushing a pumice stone across the garment to remove the pills.
  • When drying feather pillows or down duvets in the dryer, throw in a few clean tennis balls towards the last 30 minutes or so of the cycle. This helps fluff and beat the pillows as well as circulate the air better.
  • Increase the efficiency of your dryer by giving the lint trap a quick wash. See notes below for more details.
