When it's cold, it's obvious, the laundry takes much longer to dry.
Moreover, whatever the time of year, it may sometimes be necessary to dry your laundry more quickly.
Here are some effective tips for drying your laundry faster, without a dryer.
Remove as much water as possible before hanging the laundry to dry it faster
Quick drying is best done before hanging up the laundry.
In fact, in order to speed it up, it is first necessary to remove as much water as possible after having washed the clothes.
It is thus necessary to select the right spin program, powerful enough, but respectful of the type of linen that there is to dry.
Heavy-duty linens and garments, such as bedding, jeans, tea towels and some towels easily withstand 1200 rpm spin cycles.
To optimize spin-drying, after taking the laundry out of the machine, take a dry towel and place the laundry on it.
Wrap the latter in the towel (very dry and clean) in order to wring out the excess water remaining before extending it.

Drying your laundry quickly: the importance of choosing the right room
The place where the drying rack will be placed is indeed very important.
It is therefore necessary to choose the warmest room in the house that can accommodate the laundry to be dried.
It is therefore advisable to favor places with heat sources, such as a radiator (without covering it), a boiler or an oven if it does not smell of food.
In addition to heat, the absence of humidity is also a key factor in drying laundry quickly.
It is thus necessary to avoid rooms that are too narrow and closed: the air laden with water must indeed be able to evacuate easily, and this will also contribute to the maintenance of the linen.
The ideal is a large room with a window that will allow the air to be ventilated regularly.
Apart from the place, the time of drying is also an element that plays on the speed of drying.
Ideally, hang out your laundry in the morning or in the morning so that the clothes can dry during the day.
Hang the laundry up appropriately to dry it faster
Properly hanging out the laundry on the drying rack is one of the keys to successful rapid drying.
You must first take care to space the clothes between them: the different extended pieces must not touch each other to promote the circulation of air between the fabrics, moisture will not remain trapped in this way.
Do not hesitate as you pass by to pick up clothes that are dry before the others: clothes that are still damp will have more air and can thus dry faster.

Use a hair dryer to dry clothes faster
For emergency drying operations, the hair dryer will be a valuable ally.
This drying technique, however, requires careful application, and therefore requires a little time.
If the fabric of the laundry is fragile, do not pass the hair dryer in the same place for too long in order not to damage it.
Tip: it is recommended to always dry the garment from the outside to the inside.
If the garment is thick or very wet, this operation will be all the longer, but it remains less time-consuming for just damp linen.
