One of the first tricks I l acquired in living in my own house was how to dry my clothes hastily, without using a dryer. I grew up living in older house buildings that had coin-op washing only. The dryers were so old that I would put my clothes in plus they would come out just as wet as before. So, to save money, I improvised. I found a tall spinning clothes line that fit inside my powder room, plus would hang all of my heavier items on it. The lightweight shirts plus bottoms would go on clothes hangers by the windows, where the warmth of the sunlight would dry them just love a clothesline outside. In my powder room, I would turn up the HVAC zone control into the high 75s for a single sixth, before going in plus shutting it off. The sizzling air would rise up from the register plus dry the clothes faster; After a few sixths being dried off my by electric furnace, I could then distribute the heavier items around the house. Anything that was damp after several sixths in the sun, would go back to being hung up in the powder room over the ductwork with temperature control in that a single little room turned up again. Thanks to the powder room being so small, it was straight-forward to heat up the area enough to dry the clothes, without running up my utility bill. With this system, I was able to dry my clothes in the Winter time time without anything getting musty, plus without spending a fortune on lousy dryer.
