Fortunately, there are several ways you can get your clothes bone dry without using a machine. It all starts when you wash your clothes. Make sure that you set it to a high spin so that it will squeeze out the maximum water. Note that at certain spin settings, it will not make a difference at all as to the amount of moisture that is eliminated.

Use a clothes rack or if you have space at home (in the garage or basement) make a line. Place the rack or line near sources of heat such as a boiler or radiator. Even the back of your fridge is a good place to get your clothes dry.

The towel trick is also popular for getting maximum moisture out of your garments. Once your clothes leave the washing machine, lay them on a flat surface and put a dry towel in between that will absorb excess moisture.
