||Laundry Drying Cabinets
|Laundry drying cabinets solve the problem
of what to do with wet items that cannot
go into the drier. Previously, these items
had to be hung on whatever might serve as
a hanger holder or laid out flat on various
surfaces of the room. All this clutter made
for a messy and unattractive appearance.
Drying cabinets are designed to look like
built in units. They will quickly dry clothes
and items such as toys, pillows, shoes, umbrellas
and even camping gear by circulating gentle
heat throughout the interior of the cabinet.
Drying time can be reduced from days to a
If you are thinking of buying
a drying cabinet,
consider the following:
- These units can accommodate up to eight garments
hanging from an interior bar. Look for special
racks that slide in and out for easy loading
of items that need to dry flat, such as sweaters.
- Up to four levels of heat are usually featured
in these cabinets. There is also an air only
setting. Best results are obtained when items
of similar weight are dried together, but
the heat level should always be set for the
lightest weight items.
- A timers that can be set for up to 4 hours
is both practical and a safety feature. Since
these cabinets dry clothes slowly, long drying
times are normal, but a timer will make sure
the cabinet is not left running continuously.
As with a conventional clothes dryer, items
that have been exposed to cooking oils or
gasoline should not be dried in these cabinets.
Anything containing foam rubber can only
be air dried. The cabinetís exhaust opening
needs to be regularly cleaned of any accumulated
dust, dirt and lint.
