Hello all

I have a condenser tumble dryer and I use the water for my iron but there is so much water. Any tips on what else I can re-use water for because it seems an awful waste just throwing it down the drain

Thanks

Steam mop is one of the uses recommended in my new tumble dryer instructions.

I'm wondering if the dogs could drink it? It should be safe shouldn't it? When you think of what the disgusting beasts are willing to drink on a walk envy <boak>

My new iron specifically states not to use water from the dryer.

I wouldn't give dogs it to drink. It'll have a bit of fabric conditioner and washing powder in it surely. Or at least the chemicals from them. I wouldn't drink it so no way would I give it to an animal.

Actually on the thread linked it says the water contains fine lint. So don't give an animal it to drink. 🐶

You can use when filling up your car engine with water , I think it's supposed to be better than regular tap water.
