The 10 Best clothes dryers
From tried and tested old-fashioned designs to high-tech super dryers
1. Dri Buddi
Hang up to 18 garments in this electric contraption. The warm vortex action takes out wrinkles, cutting down ironing time.
The clips on this folding clip dryer don't tangle when stored, and the soft, non-slip touch points mean you won't mark your clothes.
3. Sheila Maid
Attach this old-fashioned dryer to the ceiling and you have an effective and environmentally friendly indoor clothes dryer.
Simply fix this durable, easy-to-clean line to the wall and pull it out only when you need the generous 22 metres of taut lines.
5. John Lewis
This compact dryer fits over most baths. It boasts an easy-to-use lock, unfolding the airer to 8.5 metres of drying space.
This costs a fortune, but it dries everything your tumble dryer can't, such as the finest cashmere and silk shirts.
The Smartlift Rotary Dryer has height adjustment, a weather-resistant frame, protective cover and 60 metres of drying space.
Providing 18 metres of drying space, you can lay delicates and woollens flat and even the biggest sheets present no challenge.
The Dry-Soon heated towel airer, which comes with two or three tiers, costs less than 5p an hour to run. It's surprisingly lightweight.
This floor-to-ceiling laundry pole features three hanging arms with grooves for up to 39 hangers and a shoe basket.
