The dryer cycle

Whenever you used your dryer, try to run it more than once. By the second time, the dryer will already be heated up from the first load, and it won’t have to work so hard to dry the clothes. You get the most efficiency by drying several loads in a row.

You’ll save money on both electricity and your clothes budget if you don’t over dry fabrics. Unless you need to wear a garment immediately, take it out of the dryer while it’s still slightly damp, especially in thicker areas such as pockets or waistbands. You’ll find less shrinking, wrinkling, and static buildup. But to prevent the danger of mildew, let damp items dry completely in an open area before hanging them in the closet or putting them in the drawers.

Make Sure you don’t overload the dryer. Clothes that tumble freely will have fewer wrinkles, so you may not have to heat up the energy burning iron. And use the permanent press cycle with its cooling down period. That will also reduce wrinkles.
