Drying clothes

You should not dry wet clothes in your room as this causes condensation and mould. Wet clothes left on drying frames or draped over warm radiators can raise moisture levels by up to 30 per cent. 

Under no circumstances should clothes be dried over heaters within the room. Aside from creating an electrical and fire risks, this can also encourage mould to grow, which in turn can cause health problems, including some potentially serious lung infections.
