Does it exist

Hi I have a question for anyone who knows.

I have an electric dryer that has a standard 220 volt appliance plug
I don't have a 220 volt outlet.
Is there a adapter available that would allow me to plug my 220 volt dryer plug
Into a standard 110 volt outlet.
Thanks

No, your dryer requires 220v primarily for supplying the heat to dry the cloths. While a heating element will heat some on 120v it will not be enough to do much drying. Using an adapter would overload the in house wiring.
