New tumble, with auto sensor to tell when things dry, also settings for 'ready to wear' etc. Have found it really difficult this yr with working nearly full time, one at nursery and one started school to keep on top of everything- ironing was the final straw! Then the old tumble broke so instead of contemplating ironing lady, saw this and thought it might save me a job! So many things say not to tumble though! Do you just try and see? Obviously not stuff with plastic logos or silk stuff? Any tips?
Give clothes a good shake before they go in, don't overload it and take them out as soon as the cycle ends. If you're not there, use the Easy Iron cycle when you get in, which relaxes the fibres of the clothes and softens them for about 10 mins. Fold them flat as soon as you've taken them out and there should be no need to iron t-shirts and kids' clothes.
I wouldn't tumble dry new clothes and I've noticed that Asda and Next stuff shrinks if it's tumble dried! I keep a Minky airer in the utility room so that when they're nearly dry I shove them in the tumbler for the Easy Iron programme.
