Hints & Tips on Drying
Before placing articles of laundry in your tumble
dryer, check the care labels to ensure they are
recommended for tumble drying.
Care Labels you may find on your laundry

Here is a list of the approximate weight of some
common laundry items.

Always load well spun laundry. The higher the spin
speed the lower the electricity consumption and the
shorter the drying time.
DO NOT load dripping wet laundry into the dryer.
Roll the article in a towel or spin to remove excess
Close poppers and zips and fasten any buttons.
Sort the laundry. Separate synthetics from
cotton/linens, and dry separately.
Remove the laundry immediately after the
programme has finished.

recommend the sheet is pinned to an article of
laundry (using a safety pin).
