Hacks to Make Doing Laundry Simpler

Why do clothes from the dryer come out wrinkled? Do you need to sort laundry into colours and whites? If you are interested in knowing how you can get wrinkle-free clothes, dry clothes fast, and whether you should separate laundry, these laundry hacks will make your life much simpler.

The myth behind laundry sorting

Did you know that you don’t have to separate laundry into whites and colours? Unless a clothing item is a brand-new red or denim, tossing all your clothes into the machine together will not cause bleeding colours and unintentional tie-dyes, and it has been this way since decades!  Though whites can handle higher temperatures (which can assist in removing stains), there is no other specific reason to wash your colours and whites separately. Which signifies that your laundry job just got simpler: now you can clean the clothes of your family members, no matter whatever is the colour. Stick a hamper in every kid’s room and toss the whole load at once, set on cold. No need for any sorting.

Have you ever heard two people doing laundry? They will be talking like, “can this cloth be put inside a dryer?”, “what about this one?”, “should this one be hanged”, “will the mark of grease go away if this cloth is washed in a washing machine?” These are some of the common doubts that people have in their mind while doing laundry.

Do the sorting in an easy way

Make use of a mesh lingerie bag or a pillowcase to wash every family member’s socks separately. It is a simple way to keep them together so that it becomes easier for you to differentiate later.

Take them for another spin

If you find your clothes are still wet after you take them out of the washing machine, then, put them inside and choose the option, “spin.” The extra spin will make them dry and it takes less energy than the extra time taken by a dryer.

Reduce the drying time

Add a large, dry towel to the clothes dryer when you want to dry your jeans or any other bulky clothes. It will reduce the drying time significantly, as the dry towel is the best thing that can absorb excess moisture. It will help you save energy and at the same time will protect your clothes too.

Dry pants without any creases

Do you want to know the secret behind wrinkle-free pants? While hanging up your pants to dry, ensure you hang them by cuffs at the bottom. Due to gravity, the pants will dry fast and that too without any creases on it.

Dry the delicate faster

After washing the clothes with your hands, they remain damp for a few hours, but if you try to wring them out, wrinkles can appear. You can solve this problem by using two towels and a rolling pin. Fold the towels and a rolling pin.  While folding the towels, keep the wet garment between them. Then, roll the rolling pin on the towels many times to take out the water five times faster compared to air-drying alone.
