4 Smart Laundry Hacks You Didn't Know You Needed
Washing clothes just got easier!
Let's face it, no one likes doing the laundry—it's tedious, tiring, and it takes a lot of time to accomplish. However, it's a chore that we can't avoid as we always need fresh clothes to wear for school or work. To help you out, we've come up with a list of smart hacks that can make the task of washing clothes a lot easier. Check out how you can remove stains in a snap and how to get fluffier towels below:
1. Use ice cubes to freshen up a worn shirt.
If you have newly bought tees or something you've worn for a few hours and would like to freshen it up, toss it in the dryer with an ice cube for 5 to 10 minutes and it will be smooth in no time. This trick gets rid of mild odors, too!
2. Use your dryer as a garment steamer.
Got a few wrinkled pieces that could use ironing? Instead of going through the trouble of setting up a board and plugging in appliances, you can just put your clothes into the dryer with a damp hand towel and let it spin for 15 minutes on a low-heat setting to make it look freshly pressed.
3. Use aluminum foil for fluffier towels.
For softer and more absorbent towels, you can use a balled-up sheet of foil instead of dryer sheets. This hack reduces static electricity, too!
4. Use conditioner to unshrink clothes.
There's nothing worse than accidentally shrinking your favorite top or go-to party dress. No need to worry as soaking the item in a mix of water and hair conditioner for a few minutes then carefully stretching it back to it's original size might do the trick.
