Think this is a fantastic product esp with winter coming and too cold to hang out the clothes to dry (or if it's raining) good for me personally as I live in a studio flat and no room for a tumble dryer. Seems to be a great price too

They are ok-ish. I have the tower type one. If your ok with higher electric bill that is.
Quick tip, once your clothes are hanging on them put a sheet over the whole lot. It will dry it quicker.

I’ve got a similar one from Lakeland and I think they’re awesome as I haven’t got a tumble dryer and they’re really convenient if you need something to dry overnight.
I bought one of these last time round; it was pretty useless really, only drying the clothes where they were hung on the bars.

I forgot to add the sheet tip
Thanks Deal-boy-trotter, just what I've been thinking of buying for years but never got around to doing!

How does this compare to a regular airer and dehumidifier? I've been trying to reduce tumble dryer usage as it uses so much electricity but dehumidifier doesn't dry clothes if there is any air flow issues (too tightly packed or folded collars)... My wife has pollen allergies so normal air drying not an option.

Did you try the sheet tip? Can see what you mean but never had one if these before so not to sure how effective they are. But will give it a shot and order it anyway

I have one of these, it could be taller! the bars do heat up and it is useful, but nowhere near as good as a radiator!
I wish I'd known about the sheet trick before! Oh well.

Exactly right. I got one and only dried where touching so quickly got banished to the spare room
My wife bought one of these for last winter and you are better off spending a little more on a dehumidifier as the heat only comes out the metal where the clothes hang on so everything below doesn't get the benefit.

You will save your money in the end buying a dehumidifier and also the house won't get damp (I normally have the dehumidifier in front of the radiator so it blows out warm air over the clothes).
This seems like a strange device... last time I checked heat rises, so only the thin strip of clothing touching the bar will be heated and dry more quickly. The only time I can imagine it being useful is if you lay a single item of clothing across all of the bars. The 'cover it with a sheet' trick doesn't sound like a good plan either - won't this just create a high-humidty enclosure that keeps all the moisture in? Any ideas how it's supposed to work?
I imagine also very good for drying spaghetti or making tacos? 🤪

Bit of a faff if you ask me. You have to dig out a separate sheet for every airer...then fold and put the sheet away.

Too much hassle.

We have been using a dissecant type dehumidifier for the last 5 years, and it's been very good, dries clothes overnight and leaves the room very warm, warmer than when we used the heater in the flat. No issues with tightly packed clothes or collars
Pretty unwhelmed by ours, only seems to dry the area in contact with the heated bar. The rest just dries as a normal airer would.
Dehumidifier /clothes airer. Clothes done in 5 hours max. And cheaper plus better for the flat

Wouldn't that just keep the wetness in?
Dehumidifier for drying clothes? What sorcery is this?
We got the lakeland one and I think it's one of the worse things we bought - awkward to use - shape / stability - this looks to have less capacity but will be easier to use.
herrbz12/09/2019 11:11

You would think that, and can’t explain it but it works.
The one I have , the tower type, you can buy a proper cover for it. But tbh a sheet does the job just as good
Don't see the point.
if you hang your clothes on a normal drying rack, it will be dry by the morning anyway.

Better than non heated but worse than your regular radiator better to pay bit more and buy those "tube" like closed fast driers

How would trapping the warm moist air around your clothes make them dry quicker? Seems to defy the laws of physics

Then ask a physicists
Get a decent dehumidifier instead. Less energy consumption, you can leave it in the flat not having to worry about causing a fire and your clothes are dry within 5-6 hours even on cold, wet days. Your walls will also thank you for getting rid of mould.

Agree,had our hot water cylinder removed from the airing cupboard when we got a combi boiler so put a dehumidifier with laundry mode in there. Even better than a tumble dryer as doesn’t shrink your cloths. My daughter has a similar one to the Aldi dryer and it’s an absolute waste of space and money.

Not at all... water evaporates over a certain temperature degree, therefore eliminating the possibility of damp clothes set at a specific temperature when the heating is on....

It's the *simple* law of physics

Evaporates yes on the small area that’s heated but then it will condense on the cooler areas of the damp cloths to take the law of physics further. These really are the worst designed dryers available. A small desk fan acting as a breeze like on an outside washing line will do a better job. Any heat generated just rises (another law of physics) so the bottom of the hanging cloths never benifits from the heat. The only thing it heats really is the planet.
