Are tumble dryers good for clothes?

Using a tumble dryer is a quick and efficient way to dry clothes without the hassle of waiting for warm, sunny weather and hours for your favourite jeans to dry. Drying clothes in a tumble dryer provides you with fluffier towels, clothes which won’t need ironing, and clean and dry clothes even when it’s raining. However, there are some clothing items that are not tumble-dryer friendly and can shrink such as: wool, garment with zippers, delicate fabrics such as silk and rayon, and 100% cotton items. To be sure of which garments react well to tumble dryers, and those that don’t, consult your clothing labels for ‘do not tumble dry’ information, to avoid shrinking and bobbling.
