Shrink your energy bill (not your clothes)

Air-drying your garments saves dollars, with the added bonus of keeping that freshly washed scent, as well as eliminating static. It’s a win-win situation all round.

Now, you’ll have more time to enjoy the things you really love, like a warm cuppa while you flick through your favourite magazine.
