Add a Dry Towel to Wet Clothes
We’ve all been in a situation where you need to leave the house in 30 minutes, but your jeans are wet after a wash cycle. This is the hack for you! Throw a dry towel into the dryer along with your wet clothes to speed up the drying process significantly. Your jeans will be dry in no time!
Use Vinegar on Sheets
Although this does sound crazy, it does work! Everyone loves fresh, clean sheets, but regular washing and drying can leave your sheets feeling stiff and uncomfortable. This is where the vinegar comes in handy. Throw a small amount of distilled white vinegar into the washing cycle, and your sheets will come out feeling extra soft!
Use a Mesh Bag for Small Items
I swear, the washing machine eats socks. How many times have you finished laundry and realized your socks were missing the other pair? Small items like socks and underwear can quickly go missing during the laundry process. The solution is to wash all of these items in a zip-up mesh bag to keep them all together. No more mismatched socks!
Dry Quicker With a Salad Spinner
This trick is perfect for delicates and items that you can’t throw in the dryer. Instead of handing sopping wet items out to dry for days, use a salad spinner. It will effectively push the extra water out of the clothes so that they are far less wet and will dry quicker.
Use Chalk for Grease Stains
If you like to cook, you know how often your clothes are ruined because of grease or oil splatter. Chalk can be used as a quick fix for grease stains until you have time to throw it in the wash. The chalk will absorb the stain and allow you to go along with your day grease-free!
