Look at those care
Would you toss dirty clothes into a washing machine without
reading the care label first? Most people like to check the labels on clothing
to ensure they are being washed at the right temperature. Use a tumble dryer
and the same level of care should be taken. Read the label and look for a logo
that tells you if it is safe to dry the garment in a tumble dryer.
Common tumble dry
logos in the UK include:
- Square with blank circle in the middle – Garment can be tumble
- Square with circle in the middle and two dots – High heat
- Square with circle in the middle and one dot – Low heat

Carefully check the label before you place anything in a
tumble dryer. Look at the symbols and make sure you are fully aware of the care
instructions. Fail to do this and don’t be too surprised if garments suffer
Lighten the load
Don’t place too many wet items into the tumble dryer. Pack
them in too tightly and your clothes will take longer to dry meaning you’ll use
more energy and waste money. When you place clothes in the dryer check they
have enough space for warm air to circulate around them. This will improve the
efficiency of the drying process.
When you load the dryer up with wet garments spare a few
seconds to remove lint from around the door. In particular, wipe the filter on
the door to prevent lint from clogging this area, it’s a simple action but it
will ensure the dryer works to the best of its abilities.
With adequate ventilation and by following a few simple tips
you’ll soon become a tumble drying guru.
