Clothes dryer owners risk catastrophe and crumpled clothes
Clothes dryer owners have been betting the farm that they know their appliances well, with a substantial number of respondents to our recent survey saying they’re happy to leave home with their clothes dryer turned on.
Ignoring well known fire safety precautions, 62% of respondents felt they could leave their house whilst the dryer was running - albeit, only for a short while.
In another show of boldness, more than one third of respondents threw caution (and the advice printed on clothing labels) to the wind by running dry clean only items through their clothes dryer cycle.
Notably, more New South Welshmen defied the ‘dry clean only’ warning when compared to other states … especially Queensland. The difference in numbers between the two was considerable: 50% of NSW versus 13% of QLD.
