Dry Towels Speed Up Laundry Drying Time

Throw 1 or 2 clean dry towels into your dryer along with your clothes. The dry towels absorb the excess moisture in the wet laundry which speeds up the drying process.

This is a wonderful suggestion! I plan to start doing that immediately, as I can use all the help, electricity-wise, that I can get! Thanks for sharing, and God bless you.

In reverse, if you have a wrinkled piece, throw a damp towel in with the item and it will "steam and fluff" the item.

Thanks for the tip on removing wrinkles from an article of clothing by putting a wet towel in the dryer.

Always make sure to clean out your lint trap each time you use your dryer.

About a year ago my DH and I thought there was something wrong with my old dryer because it wasn't drying the clothes properly. I kept on adding extra minutes to the drying cycle, and was just wasting natural gas that we were paying for.

We overlooked the fact that the hose had to be cleaned. So my DH disconnected it from the back of the dryer, and we pulled out fistfuls of lint from the dryer hose and I went outside and removed the vent on the house and cleaned that out as well.

So every year, we have to remember to clean out the accumulated lint.
