We all know that we do not put wool clothing in the dryer. Many people do not realize that overdrying of clothing not only wastes energy but damages the clothes. The most important step in laundry prep is to read the clothing label. The newer dryers have an "auto setting" or "less dry" setting that shuts off when the sensors determine that the clothes are dry.
Material that can be put in a dryer on a low setting are cotton, acrylic, linen, microfiber, nylon, polyester, silk, and velour. Often it is best with these materials to partially dry them and hang the items to complete the drying process since most of these fabrics are prone to shrinkage.
Material that should NOT be put in the dryer are embellished items, spandex, lace, rayon, suede, and wool.
