Washing laundry out to dry on the clothesline may sound like a big task, but it is moments like these when you can spend some quality time with yourself and enjoy the bright sunshine outdoors. Many people living in the suburbs used to dry their clothes using an outdoor clothes dryer. This practice has almost disappeared from most suburbs. In addition to drying clothes, one must be more responsible towards the environment and start using an outdoor clothes dryer for drying the laundry. An electric clothes dryer uses nearly 1,000 kilowatts of electricity annually. The total amount of electricity used by an electric clothes dryer alone is accountable for ten percent of your electricity use. An electric clothes dryer also emits huge amounts of greenhouse gas and carbon. Using an outdoor clothes dryer also helps you save money, time and energy and the clothes smell great after drying in the fresh air.
Here are some ways to choose the perfect outdoor clothes dryer for drying laundry:
The outdoor clothes dryer must be made of non-ferrous materials such as anodized aluminum which is easy to clean, durable and rust resistant. This would also make the outdoor clothes dryer flexible, light and easy to move around. In addition, it should rotate for convenient loading.
The outdoor clothes dryer must be strong and robust enough to withstand the laundry weight. You should also be able to dry more laundries without having to wait for the first batch of clothes to finish.
An outdoor clothes dryer must also be portable and strategically placed in a base that has been cemented into the ground. You must ensure that the outdoor clothes dryer can be removed, folded and put away when not in use.
Look for an outdoor clothes dryer which suits your budget. It should be able to help you dry your laundry efficiently and must have low maintenance costs.
