As a stay at home Mum, the running of the house is left to me. It seems that housework is never ending. There are now more time-saving domestic appliances than ever to use. When I think of what my Mum told me about what they used to use for housework, especially to do washing, we are lucky. They had to use a mangle, which was time-consuming and dangerous for squashed fingers!
At the moment I am between tumble dryers. Mine broke, albeit after 11 years, the replacement has not arrived yet!
I feel that tumble dryers are one of those appliances that you either love or are not fussed by. For me I love it. It saves me having to try and drape sheets and towels all over the house. I also wash my husband’s teams’ football kit each week and it plays a key role in getting through the smelly kit as quickly as possible! This is also not the weather to be drying outside at all.
Even when I moved into my one bedroom flat, when I first left home, I made sure there was room in the kitchen for a tumble dryer. It was a condenser one but it still made a huge difference as drying space was limited.
Are you a lover or indifferent? Why?
Vented or Condenser?
What is your favourite appliance?
My top 5 reasons why tumble dryers are great:
- They dry clothes
- They lead to less ironing (I am not a natural ironer!)
- They take us less room than a clothes airer
- They don’t cost too much to run on average just under £100 a year
- The make the whole washing process faster. I can strip my bed, wash and dry it, and have it back on my bed in under 2 and a half hours. Perfect!
So for now I will continue to work my way through my washing, one load at a time and wait, as patiently as possible, for the new one to arrive!
