Laundry, as we all know, can be one of the dirtiest subjects on the planet.
It is also one of the most talked about because depending on how you dry your clothes could mean an increase or a
decrease in your carbon footprint.
The invention of the domestic tumble dryer meant that clothes could be dried in bad weather conditions and for those families who rely on clean
school or work clothes they were sorely needed.
Unfortunately they just happen to use lots electricity that is mainly created by burning fossil fuels and

journeys to work.
