As temperatures rise here are our top tips to cut bills and dry your laundry outside

TUMBLE-drying your clothes can add a lot to the household bills.
In the UK, the average dryer will cost up to £100 each year to run.

With temperatures expected to rise this week, it is time to get the washing outdoors and save those Pounds.

GO P-RO: Pick up a new rotary washing line from Robert Dyas.

The Brabantia Compact 30m, three-arm rotary airer was £56.99 but is down to £44.99.

STAND OUT: Argos has a free-standing rack for just £10, which is ideal for putting small washes outside to dry.

UNDER COVER: Avoid the problem of sudden showers by setting up free-standing drying racks under a gazebo.

Experts swear this is a great way to dry items such as sheets and duvet covers.

Look out for the white Suhali square gazebo for £31 at B&Q, or the basic gazebo at Wilko for £25.

SPACE SAVER: Short on space?

A wall-mounted fold-away rotary washing line could be what you need.

While the Brabantia version is £149 at, I found a similar one at for £39.95, a saving of £109.05.

POP UP: Putting up multiple retractable washing lines means you can get a larger load dried more quickly.

Amazon has Minky retractable washing lines for around £15.

But head to eBay, where I have seen similar versions from £12.

DOUBLE IT: Two lines are better than one.

The Livivo double retractable washing line is popular at around £26.

But the Argos dupe works just as well and it is £10.

I’d get that one and pocket that £16 towards some new bed sheets instead.
