We have all been there… you throw a pile of clothes in the washing machine and feel like everything is going ok until you pull out this:
Good news is there is a super easy way to fix this problem! Just pick it all up and throw it in the dryer. All of the little bits of tissue will be collected by the lint filter and you can continue living your life without picking off the 1 000 000 pieces of paper!!
3. Quicker clothes drying for free
Oh the days of a Hills-Hoist clothes line, how I wish I still had you! Unfortunately I know have two options:
- Clothing horse that takes up half of my apartment and pretty much leaves no room for movement.
- Clothes dryer that takes 4 years to dry
I tend to take the free option of the clothes horse but when I am in a hurry I go “faster” option of the clothes dryer. To make the clothes dryer actually faster, throw in some clean tennis balls or a dry towel. You will be amazed at how much faster the clothes dry!
4. Fold like a pro
The most mundane of all the laundry experience… folding your clothes afterwards! Well do not spend a second too long on this soul crushing experience. Fold your clothes in seconds!
This little tip alone will save you BULK time in the folding process! If you aren’t the kind of person who folds or you want some tips for you pants, you can always roll it. Not only will rolling your clothes save you time but it will also save heaps of space! Next time you are travelling give it a go because you will be amazed at how much space you save!
