Water

Can the water from a tumble dryer and a de-humidifier be used for plants?

thanks

    I always use my dehumidifier water for plants, haven't got a tumble dryer so wouldn't know there.

    Yes novice7, the water collected by those has been evaporated and condensed, so is effectively distilled water.

    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.

    my plants are all in containers, so is it suitable for ALL plants, ericaceous compost plants, and do i need to add somthing to it.

    Yes, suitable for everything and is neutral in pH but contains no nutrients at all. 

    Good idea to use it in the iron Tetley - we have hard water here so have to buy distilled for that or the iron furs up in no time.
