  • Drying clothes during the winter can be a real struggle. Especially if, like me, you have no tumble dryer to make the drying process quicker – and want to avoid clothes draped around the living room. The new Lakeland Drying Pod, from the Dry:Soon range, could be the answer to all our laundry dreams.

    The new dry pod model aims to dry clothes quickly, quietly and efficiently.

    Costing just 15p an hour to run, it works by blowing hot air through clothes hanging inside. The hot air dries them gently but oh-so quickly and efficiently – without stealing all the heat from your radiators.

    Lakeland sold a similar version of this clothes drying pod a few years ago. Lisa, home buyer and in-house laundry expert at Lakeland is delighted to bring back this updated version for 2019 – developed to do the job faster, quieter and more efficiently than before.

    The pod dries clothes quicker than most conventional electric airers. It’s also a far gentler drying process for fabrics than the rough and tumble of a tumble dryer. The new pod has a built-in fan in the base that heats air up to 70°C and fills the enclosed pod to dries your clothes in next-to-no time.

    Ideal for shirts, blouses, linen clothes and delicate fabrics, but comfortably able to dry thicker fabrics like jumpers and denim too.

    When the Lakeland team put the pod through its paces they found lightweight fabrics dry in less than an hour. Heavier items such as jeans took around 2 hours – still less than the time taken draped over a radiator.
