Do clothes get damaged and shrink in the dryer?

Most clothes can be safely dried in tumble dryers. The main thing is to check the labels before drying.

Can duvets be dried?

You can dry duvets in our laundry. Due to the thickness of the duvet, it may take 20-60 minutes for the duvet to dry.

Do clothes crease in the dryer?

Clothes in the dryer are dried with warm air. The dryers have a special anti-crease system. The most important thing is to fold clothes immediately after drying. Then, in most cases, they don`t even require an ironing room!

Can down jackets be dried?

This is how you can dry down jackets. However, you need to remember about choosing the right drying temperature. Down jackets require longer drying time for the jacket to regain its properties. Drying the jacket takes about 40-50 minutes in our dryer.

Yes. You can dry both white and colored clothes in the dryer, because the clothes no longer dye.
