Exploring the Need for Late-Night Shopping for Clothing

In this article, we'll explore the pros and cons of bringing clothes from the outside into your home during the evening hours.


In this article, we will discuss whether clothes should be dried at night and the potential impacts of doing so. Many individuals choose to wash and dry their clothes at night due to the availability of free time after a busy day. However, this can be considered a bad habit for various reasons. Let’s explore the topic in more detail.

1Should Clothes Be Brought Inside When It’s Dark Outside?

  • Clothes are susceptible to bacterial contamination: During the night, temperatures drop and humidity increases, causing clothes to remain wet and dry slowly. These conditions are ideal for bacteria to thrive, resulting in odorous clothing.
  • Clothes can attract eggs or insect feces: Clothes dried at night are more likely to attract nocturnal insects. Consequently, there is a higher risk of contamination with feces or insect eggs. This can be especially risky for children, as wearing contaminated clothes may lead to skin damage and potentially dangerous diseases.
  • Causes skin allergies and dust contamination: When clothes are dried at night for extended periods, dust tends to accumulate on them, making them dirty. This can cause allergies when the clothes come into contact with the skin, particularly for individuals with weak immune systems or open wounds. Such conditions may result in sinusitis, asthma, and other related diseases.

2Tips for Drying Clothes

  • Dry clothes in well-ventilated, spacious areas with sunlight. Avoid drying them in places with insufficient sunlight or high humidity to limit the growth of bacteria, mold, and dirt.
  • When drying clothes, ensure some distance between the garments to allow for better moisture evaporation and faster drying.
  • Avoid turning the clothes inside out while drying, as bacteria and insects may adhere to the inside and affect the skin directly.
  • Avoid drying clothes on rusty clotheslines to prevent them from getting soiled.
  • When drying wool clothes, it is recommended to dry them flat. Wool has high absorbency, causing the clothes to become heavier when wet. Hanging them like regular clothes can lead to quick deformation.
  • Prior to bringing in clothes that are being dried, shake them to remove any remaining dust.
  • It is advisable to separately dry undergarments and children’s clothes from regular ones.
  • Avoid drying clothes overnight.
