What does the delicate setting on a dryer do?
Also asked, what do dryer settings mean?
Choosing the right setting will prevent shrinkage, fading and wrinkles. Regular/Heavy: High heat and fast drying. Use this setting to dry whites, socks, towels, etc. Clothes washed in hot water may shrink if the regular cycle is used to dry them. Permanent Press: Medium heat.
Secondly, is delicate the same as tumble dry? Tumble dry low (or Delicate/Gentle cycle) is ideal for loosely woven fabrics or anything with embellishment, like beading, sequins and iron-on decals (sports jerseys). It's especially important to dry spandex/exercise clothing on low heat because it prevents the fabric from fraying, fading and stretching.
Also asked, can you put delicates in the dryer?
Drying Your Delicates. Air dry your delicates. Dryer heat can ruin your delicates because it can cause shrinkage, so it's best to air dry them. However, if your dryer has a “no heat” and/or “air fluff only” setting, you can toss the mesh bags in the dryer to dry halfway.
Is Perm Press hotter than normal on a dryer?
Regular. If the item you are washing does not say "permanent press" on the label, or indicate some other setting such as "cool," it is more than likely fine to dry with the "regular" or "normal" dryer setting. The regular setting runs at a higher temperature than the permanent press drying cycle.
