    Don't have a dryer, never used one either. On dry days we hang the laundry outside (light well) on humid/wet days we hang it up in the guest bath room with a dehumidifier on.

    I have a washer/dryer combo and use the dryer function all the time, for everything (I am a guy so I consider the "washing instructions" on clothes to be completely optional). I haven't been able to live without one - love it.

    our washing machine claims to be a dryer also.. but thats bullshit

    There's a poll mounted from the ceiling by the windows in the spare room that gets lots of light .. we hang stuff on that with coat hangers and just put it away when dry

    (this is pretty rate tho, its ~30hkd for a bag of washing to be done, dried and folded for you.. why do it yourself)

    I think I have the same machine!

    I hang clothes outside when it is sunny / windy. If it is rainy for a week, then I use the laundry downstairs which costs HK$30 or so.

    Yes, have one. Our washer/dryer id not do the job of drying well enough so we got a Fisher & Paykel Dryer for drying. It's not expensive and it does a superb job. Used it in Australia, then Malaysia. So we decided to buy the same one here in HK.

    I think the poll needs to have Do you use a "stand alone dryer" or do you use a washer/dryer combo.

    I find most people have the combo but I found it never really got my clothes dry. We purchased a stand alone dryer and I was much happier!

    Angry Where's the Hi-Speed spindriers I had in the 70's in UK - never to be seen in HK.

    In UK in the 70's (the last time I was living in that dank, demented country) I wanted dehumidifiers - but never found any.

    In HK in the 80's I found and bought many dehumidifiers over the 35 or so years here; BUT I have never found the super-hi-speed stand-alone spin-driers which really expell the water from washing

    Nowadays - like this week, the maid uses the washing machine and even at its fastest spin, still leaves a lot of water in the washing.

    This is taken to my study & placed on drying racks with TWO near-silent Hitacha dehumidifiers to dry out in a few hours (depends on the drying load).

    These function as my "clothes driers" - and warm up the room too!

    On dry days - the washing goes on to my balcony.

    Have a stand alone dryer which came with the apartment. Use it all the time and gets stuff dry in an hour usually. Have a wash stand on one of the balconies but all it does it drip water from the rain.
