Autumn is the season for cosying up your wardrobe with woolly jumpers, jeans and welly boots, but keeping up with your laundry in the wet and cold autumn weather can be a challenge. Using a tumble dryer regularly can consume a lot of energy, using about four times as much energy as your washing machine uses*. With outdoor drying off the cards, an indoor dryer is a much more cost effective option. Luckily, we have the perfect indoor, space-saving drying solutions to help prevent that washing from piling up…
If you have limited space in your home and have more laundry to dry than a radiator edge can hold, our Vileda Dry Cascade (RRP £31.99) is just what you need. This strong indoor 3-tier airer stands long and tall with 15m of drying space and has clothes hanger hooks on each corner. It has an easy opening and closing mechanism, three drying heights and foot protectors which prevent floor scratches.
For loads of laundry (get it?!) including socks and delicates, the Viva Dry Flex (RRP £29.99) is perfect for all your family drying needs with up to 24m of drying space. With adjustable wings offering four different drying heights its ideal for delicates which need to be dried flat and also for longer items such as all towels thanks to the 50% more drying space it boasts than the average indoor airer.
Both the Cascade and the Viva Dry Flex can be folded flat for discrete, out-of-the-way storage to enable more room in the busy family home.
