Heated Clothes Airer - Rate Them?


Does anyone have one? Better than a normal clothes airer? I have a lot I can't tumble dry!


Also
Does anyone have one and use a tumble dryer? Did you notice a change in your electric bill by reducing the amount of tumble time? I look at the pence per hour and wonder if it's worth while.

We don't have one at home but I used one on holiday (we had a wet weather week) and it was actually quite good. I don't have space at home but would consider it if did

I have a Lakeland airier too. Had it for around a year now I absolutely love it I use it almost every day. I have the cover too which works better than throwing towels on it

I also have a tumble dryer. I use it for bedding, towels and my husbands work clothes as he always forgets to tell me he needs something that night. I didn't know much about energy efficiency when I bought it so ours is a b (for comparison our washer is a+++). It does use a lot but I wouldn't be without it. I put a dry towel in with a load to reduce drying time

A nice upside to the airier is my house smells of fabric conditioner whilst the clothes are drying.

Yes it does, I don't know why but it does. I know you can buy eco balls or whatever they are to go in the dryer too.

I have a dry buddy, I would rate it but I have no idea about the running costs. I dry everything in it. We don’t have a tumble dryer but definitely do need one. This at least does for now.

My dryer is on all the time as I can't bear wet Washington around the house. The only one thing I miss about summer!

I couldn’t get on with the Lakeland airer at all. Took a few days just for my undies to dry (and they aren’t THAT big lol)
Ended up taking it back and replacing our tumble dryer. I’m unsure of the running costs but for ya with 4 children it’s a necessity.
