Air Drying Vs Machine Drying Clothes: Is There Really A Difference?

There are two ways to dry your clothes: air/line dry or machine dry. A majority of people choose the latter because it’s easier and doesn’t take as much time. However, some people strictly air dry their clothing. Is there really a difference? Let’s weigh it out.

Air Drying

It saves energy, which saves money.

Your clothes won’t wear out as easily since they aren’t tumbling around in a dryer.

Say goodbye to wrinkles! Air drying reduces wrinkles if they are hung properly.

The sun (if you’re drying outside) will naturally disinfect your clothes.

Machine Drying

Fast drying time.

Your clothes won’t have that stiff feeling.

Different temperature options to accommodate the type of clothing.

There’s a limited capacity. You don’t want to overload your dryer or else your clothes won’t dry completely. Plus, it’ll cause wear on your dryer.

Honestly, it comes down to personal preference. If you don’t want to use energy and money to dry your clothes, then air drying is totally for you. If those things don’t worry you, then stick with a machine dryer.
