It works for me and it'll work for you!

I like to keep one towel (and clean ratty one) that I use to throw in the dryer with each load of laundry. The dry towel helps cut down on the drying time with helping absorbing the wetness of the load. I noticed my drying time cut by 10 minutes for most loads (sometimes towels or jeans are a little less). Helps saves electric and a good use for an old towel~!
