nope! My missus prefer it that way! She was the want who started to hang indoors much to my chagrin because i am the one paying the electricity bills. She will even wash the clothes at night sometimes at midnight and put them under the fan to dry. It will be dry by 8 am.

I mean the really really 366sqft studios with no balcony, if they work in the city and need to iron shirts and suites how do they dry them? In SG it seems to take days for clothes indoors to dry.

And one can't iron and then put back to dryer to winkle it again.

It’s not just the shoebox studio units lah.

Many of the new (smallish) 1,000-1,300 sqft condo units - where the developers squeeze in 3-4 bedrooms, also do not have much (if any) drying yard area behind that opens to the great outdoors. 👎🏼

I pity the families living in such stifled conditions 😕
Breeding mildew within - as some of you have pointed out.

Developer’s agents would usually have standard answers for that like “Oh you need to install a dryer lor”. 😂

for the apt i am renting out, there is a washer and then a dryer on top, both belly loading. i thought that should be a pretty common configuration. 

 

usually, such tenants will have a weekend maid coming in to clean and do laundry and ironing, and all the laundry must be clean, dry and back in the wardrobe for next week.  the tenants don't really care how it's done, but won't want to see clothes hanging all over the place. 

 

usually the dryer will get the clothes to 70-80% dry, and then the iron gets to 100%.  the clothes are a little damn, so don't need to spray some more water, and much easier to iron.  everything if washed, will generally be ironed, even bedsheets. those that cannot be ironed, the tenant will be hanging here there everywhere, but that's up to them. 

 

that is my experience in any case.

Why not get a dryer which can dry 100% at one go.

Dry to 70% and then finish off by ironing seems so inconvenient. Those that cannot be ironed still need to be hung up.

Won’t talk about more time needed, as the tenant has maid.

because dryer always doesn't seem to get you to 100%, and the output is always one entangled crumpled mess so you will always need some ironing.  things that cannot be iron, i think generally shouldn't be in a dryer as well.

My gf family used dryer for many years. Don’t seem to have any issue. Once finish drying can iron, fold and keep in waredrobe already. No smell at all.

If you are afraid the dryer will be messy or damage your cloth. Just buy laundry bag and it will solve the problem.

We are talking about private condos right? So naturally the mentally should be different from HDB. Most people in HDB has the fixed mindset of hanging cloths out to dry.

Anyway HDB is also getting smaller this days, and gov are now implementing open kitchen as well. So what’s the diff? It’s just a trend that has already sit in and we just have to adapt to these changes.

Size of house will continue to get smaller over times. Unless you don’t mind staying in older development which might bring you the risk of building defects, en-bloc, obsolete, difficult to sell, lack of facilities, pest issue, and the possibilities of other issues..

I’m going to stay in a 2 + study soon. So will keep my house lean and use dryer to dry my cloths.

Just be flexible and there will be solution to every problem.

Finally starting to see the young generation coming of age and starting to post.

For us of the older generations, it will be an eye opener about how the young people solve problems creatively, effectively and decisively.

If you live in a tiny studio, the last thing you worry about is drying your clothes, since you can already compromise your living quality.

 

Given Shoebox and studio units  or flat? I rather live in a flat. More space for yourself and visitors.

I mean the really really 366sqft studios with no balcony, if they work in the city and need to iron shirts and suites how do they dry them? In SG it seems to take days for clothes indoors to dry. 

 

And one can't iron and then put back to dryer to winkle it again.
