Device Dries Wash In 3 Minutes

AN ELECTRICAL clothes drier using centrifugal force is capable of rough drying the family laundry in three minutes. The dryer plugs in on any light circuit, and is small enough to fit in any out-of-the-way corner.

The clothes to be dried are suspended by a net inside a rotating cylinder. As the rotation casts the water off, air currents are drawn through the clothes to hasten the process through evaporation. A waste pipe draws off the excess water. The dryer is much easier on clothes than wringing, as well as being
much faster. It was developed in Germany.

    If that’s the dryer they’re standing in front of, it looks kind of small and prone to leaving clothes wrinkled. But I guess it was an advancement! And I’m sure they were already ironing clothes anyway.
