The cold weather has come, which means that many people have problems with drying clothes after washing. Not everyone has special drying machines, and things dry for a long time in an apartment or on a balcony. Often people hang clothes on batteries to speed up the process, but it's better not to do that. We found a way out and collected some useful life hacks on how to dry things after washing quickly and correctly.
In the cold and rainy season, it is not possible to dry the laundry quickly. You can buy a dryer, but it's not cheap, and it consumes a lot of electricity. People are trying to find effective drying methods, but not all of them are really useful.
We have picked up some practical tips in order to dry wet clothes without spending a lot of time on it and without using special devices.
It is better to wash the bed linen in the morning. During the day it will have time to dry out, and in the evening it can already be put in the closet. Remember: the higher the density of the fabric, the longer it dries. If things can be washed not only in the delicate washing mode, put them on an additional rotation circle before removing them from the machine. It is best to hang bed linen in places where there is a good air flow, or in a room that is visited least often.
To prevent the bed linen from being crumpled, it needs to be thoroughly shaken immediately after washing. It is best to dry it on the railing if there is a staircase in your house. So the sheets and duvet covers will be stretched to their full length in an even vertical position. Do not forget to check before drying whether there are any irregularities and roughness on the railing, so that no hooks appear on the fabric.
Doors and cornices are also perfect for drying wet laundry. Only small items are placed on the hanger-dryer, and it is more convenient to use doors for drying bed linen. Due to the height, you can hang bedspreads and sheets on them. The doors should be kept open to ensure maximum air flow and not damage the fabric. Be sure to check if there is any dust or dirt on the surface of the doors, so as not to dirty freshly washed things.
Bed linen can also be dried by attaching it with clothespins in doorways or by stretching it between tall pieces of furniture. It is best to do this in large rooms that are rarely used.
Although many people use such a popular method of drying at home, it carries a direct risk of fire. Condensation forms under the wet cloth, which leads to dampness and fungus. Over time, the batteries may rust. In addition, this drying method negatively affects the quality of heating at home, since moisture prevents the desired room temperature from being reached.
In order for the house not to be too humid, you need to take care of good ventilation. Open the windows frequently and ventilate the rooms. It is important to select high-quality hoods that will help reduce the amount of condensate.
Do not forget to wash and dry the bed linen regularly. It is best to change it every week. Sheets should be ironed after drying to keep them in perfect condition. It won't take long, but it will make you feel like royalty, diving into a clean and fresh bed.
Meanwhile, experts told how to wash underwear so as not to catch an infection. It turns out that even freshly washed underpants can spread harmful bacteria.
