I'm sure it will. Just be aware that when clothes first come out of a condenser drier, they'll still be a fraction damp to the touch and need airing for a few minutes or so to dry out fully, esp. if you set the drier setting to anything short of "super-fluffy" or whatever the extreme dry setting is called on your machine. It's just how the technology works.
Thanks for the heads up! It got here this morning, it's been tested and it works very well.

Bought a tank of gas, a bottle of Diet Dr. Pepper and some kettle chips. It was a long drive.

I'd even say that taking them out slightly damp makes for less wrinkled clothes than ultra-dry. Glad it's working out!

And thanks for this bit of info as well!
It's always a bit tricky with a new piece of equipment, all advice is very appreciated.

This sounds like a great beginning to a detective story.

I bought this necklace for my sister-in-law for her birthday. It's a bit cheesy, but she's really sentimental and I figured it's appropriate, since we were friends long before we were sisters.

Yet another tank of gas, a bottle of water, a Hershey bar and some kettle chips. Another long drive back home.

Yep, agreed. Shirts go to "iron-dry" level as they really are easier to iron when fractionally damp; everything else to "airing cupboard" level. I never use the "super-fluffy" extreme setting, even for towels.

Haven't bought anything for several days; not willing to brave the shops on one of the busiest weekends of the year!

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

I got me a latte, because it was just too damn cold outside today.

And some groceries, including cherries because I needed a treat.

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

I just bought my drivers license. (I actually earned it. But i have to pay for the manufacturing and the photo.)

Now it says: AM, A1, BE, CE. (EU moped, light motorbike + tractor, passenger car with heavy trailer, lorry with heavy trailer, respectively.) Gotta turn 21 for taxi, bus and heavy motorbike.

What i don't get is why they can just give me these little stickers instead of giving me a new license every bloody time i pass for something new.
