Save Money, Time, and Space with a Simple Living Portable Clothes Dryer

By: Donna Chaffins | Date: February 22, 2017 | Categories: Home and Garden, Product Reviews

I received this product free to facilitate a review and provide my honest opinion. All opinions are 100% my own and may differ from yours. I will only endorse companies, products and services that I believe, based on my own experiences, are worthy of endorsement.

Laundry quote funny Simple Living Portable Clothes Dryer

A few weeks ago our clothes dryer quit working. There’s no good time to have a dryer quit working, but if you’re a parent, not having a dryer (and/or washer, for that matter) is really not a good thing. Laundry is never ending in my home.

Never. Ending.

I will admit when our dryer quit I panicked for a moment… or two. Luckily my husband is a DIY man and a tinkerer and was able to repair it after ordering a part for it.

So when I was given the opportunity to review the Simple Living electric portable clothes dryer, I jumped on it. 

Now I don’t need to worry about being without a clothes dryer since I have the Simple Living clothes dryer. Another reason I’m glad to have a portable dryer is for my son’s school uniforms and my clothing items I hand wash and hang to dry. 

Simple Living Portable Clothes Dryer

I’ve never dried my son’s clothes in a conventional tumble dryer before because I don’t want them to shrink. This portable electric clothes dryer is perfect for all the clothes I don’t want to put in our traditional dryer. And I love that the dryer has drying racks… perfect for smaller items, like socks and underwear or clothing you lie flat to dry. Just hang your clothes on hangers or use the drying racks and your clothes will be dry in approximately 30 minutes.

If you have heavier items like towels, for example, it takes longer to dry, but still, about the same time it takes clothes to dry in my traditional clothes dryer.

Save Money

The Simple Living dryer is very economical. Right now it’s on sale for $74.99. I know, what a bargain! It sure beats the price of paying for weekly laundromat visits.

Save Time

This portable dryer dries clothes quickly and efficiently. 

Save Space

The Simple Living Portable Dryer is a great space-saving dryer. It’s perfect for small apartments, RVs, dorm rooms, boats, or even larger homes like mine. I now have a dryer to supplement the dryer I already have or if mine quits working again.

More things I love about the Simple Living Clothes Dryer…

Assembling the portable clothes dryer took less than 15 minutes, and it is incredibly lightweight. You can easily move it from room to room. 

It is so quiet, even more so than my traditional clothes dryer. I also love that it’s gentle on your clothing, unlike a conventional tumble dryer, especially on your delicates.

It does not require vents or special outlets. You just plug it into your regular outlets, set the timer, and in no time you have dry clothes.

Simple Living Portable Clothes Dryer

If you are in the market for a clothes dryer and you’re on a budget or don’t have a lot of space, or don’t want to have to lug your laundry to the laundromat all the time, I highly recommend the Simple Living portable clothes dryer

You will save time, space, and money with the Simple Living portable clothes dryer.

Reliefband for motion sickness relief for amusement park rides

We usually get season passes to a local, and popular, amusement park, but I was debating about doing it this year. I enjoy it the first visit each year, but it becomes progressively less enjoyable when all I do is sit and watch my husband and son ride all the rides because I have motion […]
