What can you put in your dryer? – the basics of laundry care
Are you wondering what you can (and can’t) put in your dryer? After all, you don’t want your clothes to emerge from the dryer much smaller than when you put them in. The care instructions on your garments provide reliable information. The symbols tell you which clothes are suitable for the dryer and which are not. Temperature is also an important factor when drying. Most modern dryers feature a “delicate” programme, which dries garments gently at a low temperature. This means that even sensitive items can be dried in the dryer.
