...and I love it.

I bought one of the Hamilton Beach Quick Dry drying stations. It's basically like an open drying cabinet without the heat.

A fan forces air through the clothes that are laid on nylon mesh racks and hung on the hanger accessories. The air speeds up the drying time in a big way, and it uses less energy than a light bulb. :)

Here's a link. It really does what it said it would.

That's great Mike. It's great when a product lives up to your expectations, because it seems that it doesn't happen all that often.
I actually looked at a dryer just like that, but wasn't sure if it would work as well as it said. Now I know!!

Probably not enough to significantly affect cure time. Soap is a whole lot denser than even heavy denims.
