The Right Way to Make Your Clothes Dry Faster with a Towel

You might have heard this simple tip before: Place a dry fluffy towel into the dryer with your wet clothes. The towel supposedly absorbs the moisture, reducing the drying time and using less energy. This does work, but with one caveat.

Dylan of Household Hacker put this life hack to the test. As the video above shows, the dry towel does reduce the moisture in the wet clothing. However, as Dylan points out, you have to take the towel out of the dryer after, say, 15 minutes for this to be effective. Otherwise, that towel is still contributing to the moisture in the dryer and even extending the drying time.

So, in short: Do put a dry towel in the dryer with your wet clothes for faster drying time, but take it out 15-20 minutes after.

Canada Day Festivities

Once again we’re holding our FREE Canada Day Picnic in the Park, at Eastvale Park between the rink on Eastvale and the Community Centre on Radford Court. From 10 – 2, join us for games, freezies and bring a picnic so we can all celebrate Canada Day together.

Afterwards we will have our HUGE annual fireworks display, at Loyola park beginning at dark. Who needs to go downtown, fighting traffic, crowds and discomfort when you can bring a lawn chair 5 minutes from home?

Donations for the fireworks display are greatly appreciated, visit to help.
