Common tumble dryer myths

Tumble Dryers myths: what’s true and what’s not.

Tumble Dryers have many rules and practices, but lots of them are just urban legends that have been handed down over the years. In this new blog article, we’ll be setting the record straight, separating facts from fiction. Go ahead to discover how to get the best laundry results.

The Tumble Dryer makes your clothes shrink

There are many reasons why certain fabrics shrink. Often, shrinkage is caused by the lack of moisture in fibers due to overdrying. In order to prevent this, you should check your clothing label and see if it's suitable for machine drying. Also, you should set the right drying cycle: Candy RapidÒ, for example, comes with specific programs for different types of fabric, even the most delicate ones.

The Tumble Dryer creases your clothes

No, it doesn’t. One of the most common mistakes is always choosing the same cycle without taking advantage of all the options offered by the appliance. Candy RapidÒ comes with the Relax Cycle, designed to reduce creases, allowing you to save time and cut down on ironing.

The Tumble Dryer uses a lot of energy

It depends. For example, Candy RapidÒ, thanks to the new Speed Inverter Motor and the heat pump, delivers amazing results with best efficiency: its energy class is A+++.

Tumble Dryer and wool are sworn enemies

That's not entirely true. In fact, certain wool clothes can be safely dried in the tumble dryer without being damaged. First of all, you should make sure that your dryer features the wool program. Then, you should always check your garment care label to verify that it is suited for the dryer. If you don’t find the “ok tumble” symbol, it’s better to flat dry your wool garment. It is also advised to use a dryer that has been approved by the Woolmark Company*. For example, the wool drying cycle of Candy RapidÒ has been approved by the Woolmark Company.

The Tumble Dryer is inconvenient

It depends. Traditional condenser tumble dryers have water containers, either at the bottom or top of the machine, which becomes heavy and hard to carry when full. This is why Candy has designed the Easy Case, an innovative water collection system that makes your laundry easier than ever. It consists of a removable case integrated into the door porthole. It comes with a handle and spout and is therefore easy to carry, simple to empty, with no spillage. Plus, it lets you reuse water in the most efficient way, always keeping the water level under control.

The Tumble Dryer is too bulky

Don’t be put off by it. If you live in a small space, it doesn’t mean that you should give up on comfort. In fact, there are stackable dryer and washer combinations, ideal to save space.

The Tumble Dryer doesn’t need maintenance

False. Proper maintenance, in fact, is the first step to extend the life of your appliance and reduce malfunction. You should remember to clean the filter after every cycle, since the deposition of debris can compromise the performance of the dryer and damage it. Plus, you should keep it clean inside and outside by using the right detergents. How can you remember all those things?
