Force acting on a body away from the centre of circular path is called centrifugal force. Thus centrifugal force is in a direction opposite to the direction of centripetal force. Its magnitude is same as that of centripetal force. The dryer in a washing machine is an example for the application of centrifugal force.
1-rotating metal drum
2&3 - wet cloth
5-let out of droplets
A spin dryer removes excess water from clothing by rotating a perforated drum at high speed. The water is thrown out through the holes. The clothes keep moving in a circle because the contact force of the drum provides centrifugal force.
