Australian shoppers are going wild for a shoe dryer that leaves sneakers and boots odour-free in minutes.

The device has been a godsend for Australians who have been battling wet weather for most of summer and are sick of wearing damp shoes.

The shoe rack’s drying temperature can be set from 450C to 700C and a timer can be set so the shoes can be dried safely.
The grey dryer has two long drying ports which are made to sit inside the shoes.

The contraption has been selling well since the recent week of wet weather.
More people have been taking advantage of their electric dryers in the wet weather too.
One mum has used the weather as an opportunity to share handy laundry tips.
Creative stylist Liz Amaya, from Brisbane, said there is nothing more annoying than removing your bed sheets and covers from the dryer, only to find them all scrunched up and muddled together.
‘It’s easy to avoid tangles in the dryer when you know how,’ Liz posted on Instagram.
Most importantly, Liz said you shouldn’t overload your machine.
‘Everything should be kept loose and free to move,’ she wrote.
This might mean drying your sheets, covers, pillowcases and towels separately, as otherwise the dryer won’t work properly.

The stylist also said you can throw a couple of tennis balls into the dryer too, which will assist the process in reducing wrinkles and fluffing towels (pictured)

‘Besides reducing wrinkles and fluffing towels, tennis balls allow air to circulate in the dryer,’ Liz said.
‘They also speed up the drying time while helping to separate folds and twists in the fabric.’
Hundreds who saw the clip said they had never heard the advice before and would be sure to try it at home.
‘Wow, I’ll definitely be giving this a go – this is life-changing,’ one commenter wrote.
‘Get out – that’s wild,’ another added.
