Sept. 7, 2011 - PRLog -- The line drying revolution which swept across the USA in the naughties has now arrived in the UK. Line drying substantially cuts electricity bills, since tumble dryers cost the most to run of all the white goods found in the average kitchen. Consumer magazine Which? estimates that the UK spends around £2billion every year on tumble drying. Line drying enthusiasts point out that machine drying clothes is totally unnecessary when nature will do the job for you - and do it free of charge. Eliminating electricity from clothes drying is one easy way to significantly cut your home’s carbon footprint.

My Greener Home Director Edwin Lloyd now stocks ten new line drying products suitable for any home. There are retractable indoor dryers which smoothly glide into an inconspicuous wall mounted canister when not in use. Then there are Hills wall mounted folding clothes frame dryers, which neatly fold away and come in three different sizes. These are ideal for use in the kitchen, or laundry room or even outside. The range of new outdoor dryers are also drawn from the famous Hills brand, so popular in Australia that the name is used to describe the concept of drying, just as we say ‘Hoover’ to talk about vacuuming in the UK.

“I was looking for products which combine convenience and money saving features and the Hills dryers won hands down. They can be ordered online on our website, delivered to you quickly and they’re really easy to put up. They’re extremely durable, made from powder coated, rust proof, high grade steel tubing. Zinc galvanising is also used for total protection against the elements. The lines are specialised, with 22 polycore filaments braided and coated with UPVC. And I tested the winding mechanism myself. If you remember the styles of the past, you’ll remember having trouble putting rotary dryers up and down amid a tangle of ugly, fraying lines flapping around a rusty pole! Thankfully the technology’s moved on. The Hills rotary dryers wind up and down effortlessly and they’ll last for years to come”

Which? estimates that the worst performing tumble dryers cost over £75 to run every year, to dry just five washes a week. Yet many families need to dry far more than this. And the figures for even the most energy efficient were still over £40, not to mention the outlay on the machine itself, having it repaired over time, and tumble dryer fabric softeners. Combined with all the other large white goods, the costs really mount up. And of all the larger white goods, the home tumble dryer clearly emerged as the most expensive to run by a long chalk.

“You probably don’t feel you have an alternative to using a fridge, but you can stop the tumble dryer pushing your bills up. You just don’t need one. As well as lines which you can fit discreetly indoors, or the new improved outdoor dryers, there are also the most beautiful Victorian style clothes airers. They can give your home an amazing traditional feel, plus they operate on a pulley system, so you just whoosh the washing up and out of the way whenever you want to. The great thing is that now there are styles to suit everyone’s tastes and lifestyles, it’s no longer about staring at washing where you don’t want to see it. You’ll save substantially on electricity bills and make a really sizeable dent in your carbon footprint.”
