Save Money and Go Green: Dry Your Clothes with a Dehumidifier Instead of a Tumble Dryer

Hello, fellow South Africans! Are you tired of high energy bills and looking for a more cost-effective and eco-friendly way to dry your clothes? Then we have great news for you! At Solenco, we believe in providing sustainable solutions that make a difference. Today, we're going to discuss how using a dehumidifier to dry your clothes can be a game-changer. Not only is it inverter friendly, but it's also up to 5.2 times cheaper per load than a tumble dryer. Plus, it's gentler on your garments. Read on to find out more!

Dehumidifier vs Tumble Dryer: The Benefits

  1. Cost-Effective Drying Solution

One of the most significant advantages of using a dehumidifier over a tumble dryer is the cost savings. Drying a single load of washing with a dehumidifier will cost you just R1.55, while a tumble dryer racks up a bill of R8.06 per load. That's a whopping 5.2 times cheaper, which means substantial savings over time!*

  1. Inverter Friendly and Alternative Power Source Compatibility

With South Africa's energy crisis and ongoing load shedding, many households are looking for alternative power solutions. Dehumidifiers are inverter friendly and can easily be used with alternative power sources such as solar and battery backup systems. This means that you can keep drying your clothes even during power outages, giving you peace of mind and making your life easier.

  1. Better for Your Clothes

Using a dehumidifier to dry your clothes is not only cost-effective but also gentler on your garments. Tumble dryers often cause wear and tear on clothing, shortening their lifespan. Dehumidifiers, on the other hand, dry your clothes gently by reducing the humidity in the air, maintaining their quality for longer.

  1. Eco-friendly Choice

By choosing to dry your clothes with a dehumidifier, you're making an environmentally conscious decision. Tumble dryers consume large amounts of electricity, contributing to our country's energy crisis and carbon emissions. Dehumidifiers use significantly less energy, reducing your carbon footprint and helping to combat climate change.


Drying your clothes with a dehumidifier is a win-win solution for your pocket, your clothes, and the environment. With its cost-effectiveness, compatibility with alternative power sources, and gentler drying method, it's no wonder that more and more South Africans are switching to dehumidifiers over tumble dryers.

So, why not make the smart choice today? Visit Solenco's website to explore our range of high-quality dehumidifiers and start enjoying the benefits of this energy-efficient, eco-friendly solution for drying your clothes. Happy drying, South Africa!
