JML Dri Buddi
Advantages: Doesn't crease the clothes like the tumble drier
Disadvantages: Cumbersome and rather noisy
I bought my Dri Buddy direct from JML late last year. I got fed up with hanging clothes on the radiators and wanted more economy than the tumble drier.
I was able to pay in three payments which was helpful. My husband put it together and I haven't taken it down because it seems a bit of a job to do so and then I'd have to store it somewhere. I couldn't face taking it up and down everytime I want to dry some washing. Fortunately it sits in the utility room as it is quite noisy. The room is well ventilated and I haven't found condensation to be a problem.
Now I am used to hanging the washing up in the best manner to dry it, I can get quite a lot of clothes dry in a couple of hours and they aren't nearly as creased as they would be in the tumble drier. I bought one of those hangers with pegs on from JML at the same time as the Dri Buddy and that works very well to hang the pants and socks etc to dry. I use heavy duty plastic hangers, triangular shape, for the clothes. Trousers and jeans have to be turned half way through or else they only dry on one side. I don't rate it much at all for items other than clothes (tea towels are OK and flannels) because they take ages to dry.
My electric bill is less this quarter than usual but we have been trying to be economical in lots of other ways so I don't know if it is all down to the Dri Buddy being more ecomical than the tumble drier.
Overall it's quite useful but the advertising blurb definately is an exaggeration and I wouldn't want to completely dump the tumble drier!
Summary: It's OK
