    Hello.

    Since I am going to be living in the university accommodation, I'll need to use the laundrette facility as it is the most convenient one. However, I noticed that some clothes can't be tumble dryed (most of them are tees or t-shirts). Therefore, is there is any recommendation to dry the clothes?

    Thank you in advance

    Stick them on clothes hangars and hang them somewhere reasonably well-ventilated to air dry. You can do it in your room if you leave the window open a bit.

    Great. Is it recommended to buy a clotheshorse for this?

    I laid them flat indoor, but I won't say it is a help for a year long laundry routine.

    Ideally yeah, you probably only want to get a small one though, halls of residence don't tend to have much space.

    Just bring a few hangers with you and work out what works when you get there.

    Alternatively just tumble dry them. Unless they're dry clean only they'll be ok.

    They probably have one of those multi-function things called a Mum.

    This is bad advice, some clothes shrink when tumbledried.

    If there is a drying room in hall use that. If not just hang them up in your room, maybe get a sock hanger or clothes rack to help, and keep the room as well ventilated as possible.

    It's only when people get to uni that they realise a bit about what housework actually is.

    OP do you really have wet t-shirts laying on the floor/furniture around the house after they've been washed?!

    Quite a few, usually cheaper ones but in general it is not a good idea to put non-tumbledryable clothes in the tumble dryer, as they have that mark for a reason.

    Nope. I lay them flat on drying rack back home. But I figured out it will be space-eating if I bring that to the uni. I wonder do they sell small-sized one though.
