Beside this, how much do you save by not using a dryer?
The “Saving Electricity” website reports that the average dryer uses 3.3 kilowatt hours of energy and estimates an average of 11 cents per kilowatt hour. A small load of clothes takes about 45 minutes in the dryer, so the cost of that load is $0.36.
Also, how much does it cost to run a tumble dryer for 1 hour? For example, a washing machine costs 50p per load while drying clothes in the tumble dryer costs 35p. An electric heater and slow cooker will set you back 31p and 25p respectively an hour while an hour of ironing is 15p.
Beside above, how much does it cost to run a dryer for 30 minutes?

Is it better to air dry clothes or use a dryer?
Your dryer machine will toss the clothes around causing wear, which is not the case with air drying. Air drying is a lot easier on your clothing. Air drying reduces wrinkles. If your clothes are properly hanged for air drying, they will dry wrinkle-free in the right shape.
