Ah, the joys of laundry day. There is nothing like it. There are so many different things that you need to do with the laundry that has built up all week. If you are trying to clean up your home, there is going to be a large amount of pressure on you to get clothes out of the wash that are gorgeously wrinkle free. Unfortunately for you, wrinkles are the bane of anyone who is doing a proper laundry day and is looking for a far better set of results than normal. If you really want to avoid those annoying wrinkles, you are going to have to spend a lot of time on your ironing board with the iron on, smoothing all those clothes out. Or do you? Perhaps not.
The secret of the washcloth
Tricks like the wet washcloth are going to save your life in these situations where your more OCD side comes out to play. There is no way that home maintenance is going to go well at all without an iron in the mix, that’s for sure. There ARE some time saving tricks that could help you out though. For example, dampen a washcloth and put it in the dryer with your dry clothes. The washcloth will heat up and give out steam. This steam can enter the fiber of the clothes that are drying and automatically smooth out the wrinkles on them. The entire process only takes you about 15 minutes and can be extremely useful on days when the mornings are a rush.
Shake and bake
The dryer might seem like the solution to all of life’s many dilemmas, but it needs to be treated with respect if you don’t want to have to call in a home maintenance service to fix everything up for you. While it is definitely tempting to simply dump all the wet clothes into the dryer straight from the washer, it is in your best interest not to. It is going to take a lot longer than it needs to. All you have to do to save time when you are doing this is to shake the water from the clothes before putting them in there. It is going to take you no more than a few minutes, and is guaranteed to cut the time taken to dry those clothes by almost half.
Follow these tips and many others in order to save as much time as you can while maintaining and cleaning your house so that it always looks like one you can be proud of.
