Just like the washer, your dryer is also a vital part of laundry. These appliances simplify our lives.
That’s why we decided to list the 5 most important tips to get the most out of your dryer.
Clean your dryer vent
Make sure that you periodically clean the dryer vent and exhaust duct.
“Dust and lint may block up in the dryer vent and cause malfunction or even fires.”
Inspect your dryer — call for a maintenance service, if necessary — and ensure that your dryer vent is clear. Blocked vents also cause a spike in your electricity bill.
Use moisture sensor
Some modern dryers have a moisture sensor that senses when clothes are dry and stops automatically. If your dryer has the moisture sensor option, use it to reduce your electricity bills and increase your dryer’s life.
Separate clothes by weight
- Don’t put in all your clothes together in the same load.
- Dry your towels and blankets in a separate load from your delicate silk materials.
- Separating clothes by type protects your clothes and makes it easier on your dryer.
Go full load
Don’t worry about doing a full load. Know your dryer’s capacity and use it to the maximum.
“Most manufacturers recommend that you make the optimum use of your appliances.”
However, if you don’t have a full load, adjust the water level according to your laundry load.
If your dryer has a cool-down cycle (most dryers do), use it so that instead of generating more heat, your clothes finish drying in the excess heat that remains in the dryer.
