How many settings are on your dryer? Go look. I’ll wait. My dryer is not a fancy machine and it has 21 different drying options. 21! There is even a setting for jeans. My dryer ought to be able to handle drying most anything. There are eight choices on my blender. From food processing to chipping ice, my blender...
