Your dryer cycle just ended. What do you do with

the clothes afterwards?

Here’s how GON Readers responded… 47% I immediately fold them and put them away...before wrinkles set in. 24% Sometimes the clothes sit there for an hour or so, but I fold and put them away fairly soon. 9% I toss them in a laundry basket, and handle them later in the day. 6% Something else. (Write in your scenario.) 6% I don't use a dryer. I line dry my clothes. 5% I nearly always forget about them, and they sit in the dryer all day; sometimes all week. 2% I toss them in laundry baskets, and each member of my family handles the rest. 1% I have to handle them right away. I don't own a dryer. I do laundry at a laundromat. Other GON Reader Comments: I wash my clothes at home, but since my dryer quit many years ago I have taken the washed clothes to the local laundromat and I prefer it because I can have all three loads dried in under an hour. I fold the lighter, 20-minute drying time load while the heavy clothes dry for another 10 minutes and then fold those. With the home dryer, each load needed at least 45 minutes. Much faster this way even including driving time. I don't let them completely dry (not clothes - they air dry). Towels, etc. finish with line drying. I toss them in a laundry basket and everyone dresses by pulling items out of the basket. If I don’t have time to fold them, I lay shirts and pants out on chair backs so they won’t wrinkle. Towels, underwear, and socks stay in the basket until convenient. I haven’t got a tumble dryer. Laundry is not finished for me until everything is put away. Sometimes I spread out the shirts and other wrinkle-critical items and let them cool before I fold or hang them. During the drying cycle, I pull out clothes that are dry or nearly dry and hang them up to prevent wrinkles. Anything left when the cycle ends gets hung up or folded, then put away in the closet or drawers. Usually they are still damp, so I hang them on a rack to finish drying, then fold and put them away. In the summer, I hang them on the rack outside and don’t use the dryer. I fluff my clothes in the clothes dryer for five minutes and I hang them. I feel the dryer takes the life out of clothes. I don't use a dryer. I line dry my clothes. Meaning on a drying rack. Our HOA forbids actual clothes lines. My husband lays clothes out on the back of our couch and I fold later while watching TV. Prevents some wrinkles. It depends on what type of laundry it is. Hanging clothes get dealt with immediately. Sometimes towels and underwear gets put in a basket to fold at a later time. If I'm near the dryer, I'll fold right away. If not, my dryer has a setting I call “fluff and fold” that I use. I immediately fold or hang up, but usually leave everything in the laundry room instead of immediately putting the laundry away. I do one load each weekday morning. Within a few hours, I "process" the dryer. I lay hanger items flat in a stack to carry to the closet to hang later. I put anything that I don't care about wrinkles (underwear, PJs, socks, etc.) in a laundry basket. At the end of the week, I fold and put away the laundry basket items. Back to Web Poll Results Index
