Mrs Hinch fans rave about 'cheap' way to dry clothes without a tumble dryer

Plenty of people suggested using a dehumidifier when drying your clothes on an airer.

One wrote: "We bought an energy-efficient dehumidifier last winter, placed in a spare bedroom with two airers, window and door closed, and the clothes and even towels dry overnight.

“Our tumble dryer is around 64p for an hour, but the dehumidifier is 45p for 10 hours.

“No clothes hanging around for days waiting to dry, and no condensation or mould either from wet clothing.”

Another recommended: "Dehumidifiers. I have two, one upstairs and one downstairs. Put clothes on prop and it dries quickly.

“When both are on, it costs about 7p per hour. The only thing I use my tumble dryer for is bedding (two doubles and three singles) as so expensive to run, but these things don't fit my props.”

A third agreed: "I use an airer but also bought a small dehumidifier. It works brilliantly and I am sure the clothes dry quicker and no mould on the walls either.
