I live in the Seville area (not known for its rain) and I have been very happy to have a tumble dryer for the last 25 years. If at all possible I hang my washing out to dry, but every winter there are stretches of rainy or damp weather when that's not possible for several days (sometimes weeks) on end. As I find I have to do laundry almost every day, and I don't really have an area to set up a drying rack indoors, for me the dryer is a necessity. For households with fewer people or less washing you could probably get by with simply waiting to do the laundry until the weather is nice.

We have a relatively low electric supply (4,4) and we have to be careful when using the dryer or else the circuit breaker trips. Basically the norm is that while it's running we can't turn on any other device that creates heat. Also, I always try to run it during the time when our electricity is cheaper (we have a peak and valley tariff) since it's a huge energy consumer. It does take a bit of planning, but it's feasible.

Worth noting that in a similar fashion that the Spanish drive on the " wrong" side of the road- be warned that their tumble driers spin in the opposite direction to UK ones

Not a problem if you are loading Spanish clothes but if you put in UK bought items they will obviously become wetter not drier

Haha RC....I see you're back with your, let's say, 'unique' sense of humour.
