Eli5: how does a dryer… dry your clothes?

In: Engineering

Added: how does it do so without catching them on fire ? It can get pretty hot!!

Dryers heat up air, blow it over clothes in a rotating drum. As this occurs, some moisture evaporates. That warm and now moist air is discharged, typically to a vent outside the building.
