Now this is a very Low Tech approach to green energy but its always good to start simple and who knew about the washing machine door shape being so important lol. What other green projects would you like to see as this has got me thinking, Theres some great pitches from the teams with energy from falling rain aero efficient Traffic sequencing and different materials to improve batteries so hope this completion helps these things become a reality.

What about grabbing the heating element from a toaster or hair dryer and adding it after the fan? But wouldn't all the heat get lost through the open door-less side? Use the original dryer drum and door!

This is a lot more exciting but less green than just sticking that wind turbine and solar panel straight into your grid.

Wouldn't it be greener to attach your wind turbine to your house so that when it is on you are collecting the power even if you don't want to dry your clothes.

In australia we just have a "clothes line" which looks like a massive umbrella covered with string which you then hang your clothes over and you just use that instead of a dry out it works great and it's free

If you had a creek you could just put the drum in the water wheel and the fan on a separate wheel then use the spare energy for upping the efficiency. Drying cloths with water.

Wind and solar powered clothes dryer.... a length of 6mm cordage that is affixed at both ends to a tree or T placed in the ground and you hang clothes across the cordage, wind blows across them wicking out moisture that the sun has heated. ....

Too bad no one has come up with some technology using a semi rigid material mounted substantially horizontal where you can lash your clothing items to facilitate drying of said items through solar contact and additionally added by periodic zephyrs.

Far as I'm aware, and I haven't done the research and neither has Colin, that just tumbling clothes around does nothing. It blocks the wind from blowing over clothes, pulling them into it. All that moving air encourages water molecules to evaporate and leave the clothes even at whatever temperature it is outside. If you block that with a big drum and some sort of notional tumbling, you get nothing. It's much worse than a washing line. Ironically making this useless window-dressing. So you should probably win the competition. Buying a tumble dryer, trashing it, then deciding it's useless, that's certainly the spirit if not the letter of this nonsense. I think I'll go back to Colin digging his big hole, whoever sponsored that. It could be Satan himself and it still wouldn't be much worse than this one.

Ecological tinsel from a massive source of pollution. Like when they put solar panels on their petrol stations. Net saving, basically nowt. Petrol sold, absolute shitloads. Comes out of their PR budget and costs them basically nothing. American vehicles use something like twice the petrol that European ones use, and nobody is interested in doing something about that. Shell's entire business is digging oil out of the ground, refining it, and selling it. Renewable anything would cut into their profits. This is purely PR, "greenwash", and it's nonsense. Apart from that, I love to see inventions. But I wouldn't be surprised if Shell bought up the patents then burned them. At least paper is renewable.

You still have to fold them after they are dry. You can't really catch consumer attention with that cloths dryer, is the problem. Too big, too slow, only works in summer, etc... I know you said to start small, i understand. It would a better ideal to save the consumer time AND carbon emissions. A better ideal is to just put the wet cloths on hangers on a special line in a special built "green house" for the cloths. This way the cloths need no folding, and when they are dry then you are done, just have the line travel them into your closet. You can have plants in the green house too, maybe it will add a nice smell to cloths too. And by having them on the line they will dry much faster because there is space between them. Plus the heat build up in the green house, and some air circulation will allow drying fast. Better yet, figure out how to design a closet that dries cloths, this way when they are dry you are done. They are already hanging there ready for you. Maybe extend your closet to include the mini special built green house, then when they are dry it automatically circulates the dry cloths in your closet, and is waiting for a new load to dry.

One thing I have found over the last 40 years......even on a bright sunny day if you haven't got any wind you won't dry the clothes.........that is down in OZ .....and that does not apply to Summer when the air temperature at 35 deg C is enough to fry your balls off. I'm working on an idea to rotate the Hills clothes dryer, which is an OZ iconical device found in practically all OZ gardens......going solar and Green is for the birds.......just too much mess and bother and the cost....oh my.....so it will be an electric motor, mains connected etc and coal fired via the grid.

I just take my clothes out the washing machine and wear them, body heat dries them soon enough. Plus, if I've eaten baked beans in the last 24 hours I can get the drying time down to about 15 minutes.
