Today's giveaway is for a $100.00 GC towards the purchase of a Dryerpod!
Here is a bit more information on Dryerpods (taken from the Dryerpod website):
"Dryerpods are a green way to dry your clothing indoors, year round, cost free. The circulating, warm air of your in-floor forced-air heat takes out the moisture in your clothing and puts it back into the home. Dryerpods can serve as a home and family friendly “humididryer” but most importantly, an eco-dryer. An essential to any household, Dryerpods allow your clothing to dry while you’re already heating your home. Your clothes can dry while your family sleeps or while you are out and about. Without using any extra energy your cloth goods dry much faster than typical air-drying. Drypods also give you a custom location to conceal your drying with no one knowing your undies are blowing in the breeze.
Visualize a Dryerpod
Dryerpods look like a beautiful custom piece of wood furniture that could fit into just about any room in your home, made of environmentally hardwood and beautifully stained with colors of plant based transparent or opaque stains. Each pod has two doors that open up to house all the cloth goods you are needing to dry. They have different options but all Dryerpods have at least one wooden, rollout rack and one wooden rod for hanging clothe goods to dry. Each pod has a custom style so you can select the perfect piece to compliment your décor. They are created to allow the wood to breath, the air to circulate and your clothe goods to dry concealed and conveniently.

For the sake of the environment and our health, we only use finishes that are zero-VOC. Using high-quality products, eco-friendly finishes, and responsible manufacturing practices is the only option at Dryerpods. We are proud to say, that our entire process: design, build, and ship, is done here, in the US.
Who are we really? Picture this: one man, one woman, three children, and one dog, nestled in a home in the mountains of Colorado. In 2010 we went in search of a dryer system that would dry our cloth goods, especially our little one’s cloth diapers. So we set to invent and create. Our cloth diapers needed to be air dried but this process took too long in the colder months and those cloth diapers didn’t look very attractive hanging on the side of the crib or over a shower rod in the bathroom. Washing cloth diapers every other day needed a better “line dry system”.
We realized we could use the heat of our home for drying by creating something that was both beautifully visually and fine-tuned functionally. We found that all the products on the market simply didn’t meet this combination. We knew we needed to turn an idea into a product many families could benefit from. With careful research and design we took this vision to a new level and began testing baby, children and adult clothing and found that Dryerpods were able to dry goods for all ages but the size of the pod needed to be specialized, so we expanded with four different pods.
As master wood workers, designers and builders with an environmental sense, we moved forward on designing, creating and producing Dryerpods for all ages. We believe in nurturing our family, our goods and our earth. Our goods are “grown” from the earth with re-useable resources and built with quality to serve a purpose of drying that doesn’t take any additional resources. You get the same benefits of drying your cloth goods as you do under the sun, but Dryerpods enable you to dry all year long, especially the months you are already heating your home with the use of in-floor forced-air heat. Dryerpods are an intelligent, stylish, timeless piece of furniture that provides the answer to aestheticism, ecology, and function."
