Individual Clothes Dryer

Hangs on the wall and dries one shirt or pair of pants at a time.

Ever get sick of the dryer just not quite getting a pair of jeans dry? Don't bother firing that beast up again, this thing will get it done in half the time. Opens clamshell-like with heating elements built into each wall. Sort of like a toaster. Probably would run off just a regular 120-volt outlet.

Pretty much exactly it, even to the clamshells. [rmutt, Mar 15 2001, last modified Oct 04 2004]

       Except for those devices which post to the halfbakery for you.

       Clothes dryer toaster? Cool.

       It's cheaper to own enough clothes so you don't have to do laundry all the time. Besides, jeans don't shrink so much if you let them air dry. :)

       How about a clothesline, or one of those wooden racks? No electricity needed. And super-cheap.

       clothesline? how dare you sugest something like that? What if we make an indoor clothes-line built in a wind tunnel. It could tripple your electricity bill, dry your clothes AND give you an extra few seconds on halfbakery.

       Why waste time drying your clothes? Just wear them out of the washer... you'll get to enjoy the fresh scent of mildew and have more time to halfbakeify, since your friends will deny your existence.

       Hmm, would it be easier to stick my hand in the dryer, feel my jeans are wet, and give them a few more minutes, or to take wet jeans out of the dryer, possibly getting water on the jeans I'm wearing, open the individual clothes dryer, place jeans in, turn it on, close it, etc,... ?   

       And it'd have to be quite a lot more energy efficient to make it worthwhile buying it as well as a normal dryer. I don't have room in my kitchen for a freezer, or 2 people, or all my beer, or anywhere to hang my dishtowel, so it'd have to be pretty neat. Sorry.   

       Incidentally, is it dryer (noun) but drier (adjective)?

       You ever see those ovens they use at pizza parlors now days? They put the pizza on a conveyor belt and it comes out the other side cooked. There are even toasters that work like that. Maybe we could use something like that for drying pants.
