Hello Andy, I couldnt find a section on discussing Tumble driers on your site but i wondered if you had any suggestions. I have a Condenser dryer in a utility room , and even though I put comfort fabric conditioner in the rinse cycle of the washing machine when I tumble dry the room instead of smelling nicely of fabric conditioner , instead after a while of the tumble dryer being on the room is hot, humid, heavily condensated and doesnt smell of nice fabric conditioner as you think it would but of damp clothes (is the only way i can describe it) - There is a window in the utility room and I do have that open as I have the tumble drier on but most of the time it seems to have no effect, it still gets so humid and condensated in there. I suppose its because its a condenser dryer and not vented out of the wall. My question is have you any ideas for cutting down further on the humidity/condensation apart from putting a 6" extractor fan in the room (which I cannot do) and also something about the smell of the clothes as they are drying from a 'damp clothes' drying smell to a nice laundry/fabric smelling smell (apart from using tumble drier sheets which i am totally against) - any other Ideas have you got. I might not of just heard of?
Hello Andy for years we have had a ritual of washing (cotton)things like underwear, towels and teatowels and socks even if they are not heavily soiled at 60c just because I read that germs and bacteria can survive temperatures under 60c. But after washing, I personally prefer towels and underwear dried in the tumble drier rather than on the line because they come out nice and soft. But (and I cannot remember how hot a tumber drier get on heat2 ) but is it likely that a Tumble drier gets well over 60c inside its drum when drying clothes? - if this is the case do you think I could lower the temp of the washing machine to say 40c or 30c and that the germs and bacteria will get killed when they are tumble dried at high heat? - whats your view? I know you can get these 'liquid additives' to soap powder these days that claim to kill germs right down to 30c but i dont really want to go down that road . The tablets we use are Biological tablets and put 2 into the soap drawer on 60c wash if this has any bearing on things.
