Laundry might not be everyone’s favorite chore…if there is such a thing as a favorite chore. But hey, it’s gotta be done! But we’re here to help everyone make laundry a lot easier and more enjoyable. Try these hacks for a better laundry experience:
1. The Missing Sock Hack
We’ve all been there. Somehow, while doing laundry, a single sock decides to disappear into a black hole in your washer or dryer. Never let another sock go missing again! Use a lingerie mesh bag to store all of your dirty socks. Pop it in the washer and dryer. When it comes to folding, all your socks will be in one place! Get the details on this hack here from I’m a Lazy Mom.
2. Wrinkle-Free Clothes Without An Iron
Wrinkles – one of the most annoying parts of the laundry process. Sure, an iron does the trick but sometimes we just want to kick back and relax. So what can you do to get those pesky wrinkles out of your clothes without having to plug in an iron? All it takes is a spray bottle, liquid fabric softener, and, of course, your wrinkled clothes. Find the tutorial here at The Krazy Coupon Lady.
3. Just Ice It!
Wrinkles can be so bothersome that we’ve got two hacks for you! How do you get that same wrinkle-free look? Ice! It sure beats having to set up the ironing board and waiting for that iron to heat up! Learn more here about this icy method here at Lifehacker.
4. Toss in a Tennis Ball
Drying laundry can take FOREVER! We’ve all been there – check in on the laundry in the dryer to find that it’s still wet. Speed up the process by tossing in a tennis ball into the dryer. This an especially handy tip for drying fluffy items like comforters, coats, and things of the sort. Find the how-to here.
5. Dab it with bread!
