What can you put in a tumble dryer?

Are you wondering what you can (and can’t) put in your tumble dryer? After all, you don’t want your clothes to emerge from the tumble dryer much smaller than when you put them in. The care instructions on your garments provide reliable information. The symbols tell you which clothes are suitable for the tumble dryer and which are not. Temperature is also an important factor when drying. Most modern tumble dryers feature a “delicate” programme, which dries garments gently at a low temperature. This means that even sensitive items can be dried in the tumble dryer.
