A Smart Way to Reduce Drying Time and Laundry Hacks

From dirt and grass stains to sweat stains to even unloading vacation clothes, summer brings out a lot more loads. Not overstuffing the washing machine is the best way to avoid a set of soggy, tangled up sheets, placing sheets in a mesh bag can also avoid a tangled mess. Some other tips according to lifestyle bloggers Sylvia Wu and Angela Lanter, if you are washing white cloths skipping detergent and fabric softener while using bleach. No matter how many times you wash a towel, sometimes it still feels unclean. “The problem could be fabric softener build up, which leaves your towels stiffer, stinkier and less absorbent than usual. Try washing your towels on a normal cycle with hot water and adding one cup of white vinegar. Reduce your drying time drastically by throwing in a dry towel with your clothes. Another air drying tip, using a pool noodle to dry your clothes, instead of using just a rack. Cut one side lengthwise and slip over your drying rack. That way, when you hang your clothes on the rounded noodle, it’ll prevent creases in your clothing. Summer can also lead to dirty sneakers and instead of throwing them out, throw them in the washing machine to bring them back to life. Use a stain removal spray and spray the fabric of your shoes before tossing them in, remove laces and wash separately, also throw in a couple of old towels to prevents the shoes from bouncing around inside the machine….Ed
