How to quickly dry washed laundry and prevent mold growth
Improperly drying clothes indoors can lead to the accumulation of mold and moisture, causing a stale odor even after washing. A sharp increase in humidity and the appearance of mold on the walls can lead to health problems.
It is especially important to dry clothes quickly and efficiently in winter. The Express publication provides guidance on properly drying laundry to avoid unpleasant consequences.
The first step is to ventilate the room. Ensure that the air circulates freely in the room where the clothes are being dried. Opening windows is recommended to allow excess moisture to escape, significantly speeding up the drying process.
In cold weather, you can use a dehumidifier.
Drying clothes on a radiator is never recommended due to the risk of fire. Place the drying rack at a safe distance from the radiator or electric heater.
If possible, turn on the heating and place the drying rack near the radiator.
When washing in the machine, do not fill it too tightly, as this will prevent the clothes from drying out properly during the last spin. And when the washing is done, hang the laundry out to dry immediately to avoid unpleasant odors.
These simple tips will help protect your home from excessive moisture and mold.
