The steam dryer function does more than you think it might.
Tell me if this has happened to you: You work all day, come home for a quick wardrobe change for a night out only to find your dress or dress shirt more crinkled than an Ore-Ida – and you don’t have time (or refuse) to iron!
What now? Hang it on the door and turn on a hot shower? I think we’ve all tried that.
Instead, toss it in a steam dryer for a refresh and throw it on 15 minutes later.
Steam Refresh Dryer Cycle
In steam refresh cycles, a small amount of water is sprayed into the drum after several minutes of tumbling with heat. The dryer will continue to tumble at regular heat for the duration of the cycle to reduce wrinkles, static and odors in fabrics.
But they aren’t just for procrastinators/wrinkled-clothes wearers.
These dryers have a sanitize cycle, which is NSF certified to eliminate 99.3% of three common infectious bacteria. Think of all those decorative pillows, comforters and children’s toys and stuffed animals that can’t be washed, but need to be sanitized for allergy-sufferers and to ward off cold/flu this season.
