Remember this one for the next time you catch yourself having to restart the dryer yet again to get it fully dry during these cold Winter months. Don’t you miss being able to hang stuff up outside to dry? I know I do, but this is the next best thing: Before you start your next load in the dryer, add in one fully dry towel to the load to help everything dry a bit faster! You’ll of course save on energy costs in the process as well. It really works! Bonus tip: If you’re having this problem consistently, make sure you check that your dryer vent hoses have been cleaned out recently. This should help the problem too. Happy Laundry!
