"She pulled out her wand and gave it a complicated little wave so that hot air streamed out of the tip; she then pointed this at her robes, which began to steam as they dried out."

The Hot Air Charm[2] (incantation unknown) was a charm that streamed hot air out of the caster's wand. This air in turn could quickly dry off soaked garments.[1]
