Not only German households usually don’t come with a dryer , it’s also common to have two washing machines in the basement serving a whole apartment building . While living in a student dormitory, we had two extremely efficient industrial washers that would get laundry done in 40 minutes.

When I lived in NYC I didn’t have enough room to line my laundry anywhere and I could visibly see the gradual deterioration of all my clothes as they had to be tumble dried .
