Best dehumidifier for drying washing

Looking for recommendations please. Don't really want to spend more than £100 but will consider slightly more for a great one.

I am bumping this for you in case anyone else has some suggestions - I am also looking for a dehumidifier.

Meaco. I have the 12L but depending on your family size / amount of washing you do you might want to consider the 20L version.

Keep an eye on Gumtree/Marketplace. Something might come up.

I also have Meaco 12L, it's very good, but doubles your budget. It's good for one big room or small flat, won't do the job if you have big house, unless you don't mind carrying it upstairs/downstairs. We only needed it for bedroom and bathroom, and it does the job. I need to empty the water tank every other day, so 2.5L of moisture from small upstairs.

Another Meaco voter here.

I have the black and decker 20l one, it's really good and sometimes drops below £100

We've just bought a Meaco 20l as a replacement for our Matsui dehumidifier which was purchased in 1995! So far, it's performing well especially with drying clothes and it doesn't use a great deal of energy judging by our smart meter!

Also have a Meaco, very good combined with a fan blowing the washing

If the room/area you are drying your laundry is around 20 degrees, a compressor dehumidifier such as the Meaco 12L or 20L would work well.

If you are hanging laundry to dry in a cooler room/garage, a dessicant dehumidifier such as a Meaco 8L or EcoAir would work better.

Appliances Direct own brand Electriq is good. I have the big 20litre one, and it’s very egos down supposed to be low energy. Significantly cheaper than more well known brands too

This one is 🔥

Blowyourowntrumpet · 11/12/2022 10:11

I've got a Meaco 12 litre and would definitely recommend it

If you’re buying a dehumidifier to save money instead of using a tumble drier, make sure to check what wattage it is and calculate how much it will cost to run. We have a Meaco Zambezi that consumes around 5kwh a day when running 24 hours a day, every day of the year (so around £1.70 a day currently) to keep DP’s precious garage dry 🥴. We don’t use it any more!

I also have the Meaco 12L
