i was wondering if any crafy mnetter has a great tip to protect clothes from burning to a crisp and ageing quickly (and also needing to be ironed!) in the tumble dryer. small flat, so cant afford to dry my clothes any other way.

I've never burned anything to a crisp in a tumbler (and I've tumbled silk blush) and surely the point of a tumbler is that it reduces creasing? Trick is not to put too many clothes in at a time - they need room to move - and to remove them asap after the cycle finishes. It'll take trial and error - my tumbler is about 10 years old and on the usual "hot" (as opposed to the alternative "cool") temperature takes 70 minutes to dry roughly half a load of washing.
