When you dry clothes indoors, where does the water go?


When I picture drying clothes outside in the sun I kind of picture the sun warming up all the clothes. But if its indoors does the water just disappear? Does the air quality inside change? (Just did two loads of Laundry, its winter but still dries the next day)

The water goes into the air, so the air inside becomes somewhat more humid. Although with ventilation this air is quickly removed, so after laundry has dried up and does not evaporate moisture anymore the air becomes the same as it was before laundry.

The same thing happen inside and outside. Sun or not. The water will evaporate and make the air more humid. That’s why you need proper ventilation inside. High humidity isn’t good for the indoor climate.
