Tumble dryer guilt is officially a thing.

Most of us are aware of the environmental implications of using a tumble dryer and the effect it has on our energy bills, yet it’s just so…. easy and convenient. And it saves you the sight of your wet washing draped all over your radiators.

So how do we make the laundry drying process a little more guilt free?

The good news is that manufacturers have cottoned on (no pun intended) to the fact that the world of tumble drying needs to step up its eco friendly game. They’re creating dryers that don’t guzzle up quite as much energy.

Here’s our list of the 10 best eco friendly tumble dryers on the market:

Miele TMG840WP

With a stellar energy rating and steam dry function, the Miele TMG840WP has lots of lovely little features to leave your laundry smelling great, feeling dry, and looking pretty light on creases.
