Members of the group claimed it was 'easier', 'faster', and 'cheaper' than a tumble dryer, with one person writing: "Clothes on a close horse and then switch on a Dehumidifier works wonders."

Another wrote: "I just bought a dehumidifier and it’s great, money well spent."

A third said: "Dehumidifier. We get bad condensation so have one anyway. I hang it in the utility room, shut the door and a load is dry in four hours. Do have a tumble dryer but dehumidifier is a lot cheaper."
