I wash my clothes, remove it from the washer and put it on a dryer rack. Then, water contained in the wet clothes naturally evaporates and becomes dry overtime. I understood this occurs from latent heat (roughly ~600Wh/kg of water to be evaporated).
My question is: where does this energy comes from? By instance, if we consider a closed room heated to 20°C (and perfectly isolated, would remain at 20°C for ever), if we dry the clothes in this room, would the room temperature be decreased (to 19.X°C) due to the energy "consumed" to evaporate the clothes?
Note: Hopefully, this specific answer will help answering How can an electric dryer be so "efficient" compared to a dryer rack?
