The Top 4 Benefits of Drying your Clothes Outdoors

by Household Essentials • March 25, 2021

Can you feel the spring weather coming? With that comes a whole array of household things you can do. There is spring cleaning, gardening, and finally having the chance to dry clothes outside amidst the sunshine. However, there are plenty of indoor dryers that will also do the trick if outdoor drying isn’t an option. Although Indoor or Outdoor Dryers aren’t the most convenient, there are still several benefits to outdoor dryers that could make it worthwhile. 


Umbrella Clothesline Dryer


They Prolong The Life Of Your Clothes

Have you wondered why your clothes tend to shrink so fast in a commercial dryer? It is because the high heat from the dryer is causing the fibers within the clothing to shrink causing irreversible damage. Also, the constant rolling and tumbling within the dryer can cause wear and tear on clothing over time. Drying clothes with an indoor or outdoor dryer, like the tripod clothing rack, will prolong the life and quality of your clothes.


Portable Indoor/Outdoor Umbrella Dryer


There Is Less Static Cling

The heat from the commercial dryer causes more damage to your clothes over time, but it also creates that static cling effect after drying them at high heat. Static cling isn’t necessarily harmful to clothing, but it can be annoying. Air drying eliminates that completely since the clothes will never be exposed to heat temperature as they would in a commercial dryer.


Tripod Clothing Rack


It Will Lower Your Utility Bills

Not only is air-drying friendly to the environment it is also friendly to your wallet. Air drying your clothes on a consistent basis will lower your utility bills significantly especially if you have a large family!


Parallel Clothesline Outdoor Dryer


Sunlight Kills The Germs

If you are able to dry your clothes outside during a sunny day, the sunshine will act as a natural disinfectant and kill any remaining germs. However, you do want to make sure that you don’t leave the delicate or dark clothing items out there too long because it could cause fading. A good solution for the more delicate clothes would be to dry them in the shade or dry them on an indoor dryer


We hope this inspires you to give air drying your clothes a chance. Let us know if you do try it, we would love to know.
