Shaving a Few Minutes Off Laundry Time, Part 2

     
Seems like we're always waiting on the dryer while doing laundry. I do know of people who have two dryers. In lieu of that, here are some great tips from Good Housekeeping on how to reduce drying time:

- Run clothes through a second spin cycle, especially heavy clothes like jeans and towels, thereby removing additional water and reducing drying time.

- Try to dry one load of clothes right after the previous load, while the dryer is still hot, eliminating warm-up time.

- Put a dry towel in with a load of wet clothes. It will absorb some of the moisture, lessening drying time.

Great tips! We still have to get a new washer and dryer for our new house. I am sick of going to the laundry mat!
