Proper hanging:

  • Arrange your clothes on the dryer so that air circulates freely between them.
  • Do not hang clothes too tightly so that they dry faster.
  • Use hangers with wide shoulders to keep clothes from warping.

Air Dehumidifier:

  • An air dehumidifier removes excess moisture from the air, which greatly speeds up the drying process.
  • It will also help prevent mold and mildew in the room.


  • If you don't have a dehumidifier, you can use a fan.
  • Place the fan by an open window so that it blows around things.
  • This will help circulate the air and dry the clothes faster.

Table fan:

  • You can also use a table fan to speed up the drying of clothes.
  • Point the fan at the things you want to dry.
  • Move the fan around so that the clothes dry evenly.
