What is allowed in a dryer

The item’s care label will tell you if it can go into the dryer or not. The care label is a recommendation from the manufacturer on how best to handle the product. The pictograms of a square with a circle inside are about drying. Are there two dots in there? Then the product can be dried with a normal drying program. Is there only one dot? That means that the item can only be dried at a low temperature. If there is a cross through it, it is best not to put the item in the dryer. Sometimes, however, the label is no longer present or legible. In that case it is useful to know that in principle everything that can be washed at 60 degrees can be put in the dryer. Always separate your synthetic fabrics from cotton, as they require different drying programs.
