Assalammualaikum wbt.
[Turn off dryer] "Mom,you shouldn't use this dryer. We must save electricity,save our money!"
"So you're going to wear damp uniform to school?"
Come on,are you kidding me? You know there are many better ways than that,being energy-efficient doesn't mean that you can't wear dry and comfortable uniform to school. There's a ton of ways to be energy-efficient. Keep reading!
1. Hang your clothes to dry either on a clothesline or a clothes tree, at least some of the time.
2. Reduce ironing time by taking clothes out when they are slightly damp and hanging them up or right away when the clothes are dry. If you get to the dryer too late, you can put a damp towel inside and run the dryer for a few minutes to get the same effect
3. Empty the lint trap after each use of the dryer
4. Dry light and heavy clothing separately for maximum efficiency

5. Make a room for drying clothes. Buy an expandable shower curtain rod and put it in the shower, hang clothes on hangers
6. Clean the filters every time you use your dryer to make sure they are free from fluff and you dryer will operate more efficiently
7. Resist the temptation to add wet items part way through a drying cycle. Far better to wait until the end of a cycle and dry clothes together. If there isn’t space in the dryer it may be a better bet to hang up those fabrics that dry quicker
8. Plan your washing so items that you want to tumble dry are all washed in the same load. That way you’re likely to fill the tumble dryer rather than washing half a load

9. Make sure the machine is full and if possible do all your drying in one go, a second load can take advantage of the heat that has already built up in the machine
10. Remove clothes from your dryer once they are dry, as modern machines will continue to rotate to prevent creasing and therefore use more energy
11. There is a wide variation in the efficiency of machines and as they are big electricity user, it’s worth checking carefully how efficient yours is
