In addition to not owning ovens, apparently only an elite group of Parisians have the pleasure of owning a dryer. The reason, as I understand it, Parisians do not own dryers is the lack of space. However I argue that the ridiculous wire contraptions that the locals use to hang-dry clothing, take up twice as much space as any dryer I have ever seen. The result of washing your towels in a minuscule washing machine followed by two days of drying on a rack, for those unfamiliar with the practice, is a cripsy crunchy surface similar to sandpaper. This may be the secret weapon for Frenchwomen who have notoriously smooth and luminescent skin! Crunchy towels. I'll report back.
