We’ve all done it. You’ve just finished a big wash (the three-basket-kind) and you’ve accidentally washed your favourite clothing item. You’ve got a big night out planned and the one thing you really wanted to wear is wet. Great.
You could wear it damp, but who would do that? Especially when there’s a chance that that your clothes will start to smell as they dry on you, despite being fresh and clean from the drum.
The key here is not to panic.
With these super easy tips, you’ll get your clothes dry so quickly; those last minute outfit panics will be no more:
Shake well and hang newly clean clothes outside on a washing line.
There’s nothing quite like the smell of clothes dried outdoors, is there? Plus if you’re lucky, the sun will do it’s best to dry them quicker too.
If the weather is too cold or wet, hang your freshly washed clothes by an open window so that they can catch some of the breeze.
Not even laundry experts can predict the weather. Play it safe and hang indoors to avoid making the problem worse with untimely rain.
Hang wet clothes over two bars, not one on your clotheshorse, so that the air can better circulate.
Give your clothes some space to breathe, and you’ll be double sure to avoid dreaded damp.
Use a hairdryer to dry those smaller items.
Get those smaller bits and pieces dry in no time by placing them on a towel and blowing them with your hairdryer. Simple.
Use a higher spin speed setting for a shorter drying time.
Make a fast start on your drying by ramping up the spin speed on your washer. A faster spin means less water, giving you dry clothes, sooner.
In a world where we never seem to have enough time, drying doesn’t have to be a drama. Just keep these tips in mind to speed up the process.
