Laundry is one of the most necessary tasks in the home, but unfortunately, in the case of drying, certain complications can arise due to the weather or lack of time. Fortunately, there are a few laundry tricks you can use to dry your clothes quickly. If you want to know what it is, please note the following.
Choose the correct wash cycle
Make sure the washer’s spin speed is set to high to squeeze the most water out of the clothes before hanging them up to dry. This will help significantly reduce moisture in the garment and speed up the drying process after you hang the garment.
Squeeze without damaging clothes
Before hanging clothes to dry, it is recommended to gently press clothes to remove excess moisture. However, it is important to avoid twisting the garment too hard, as this may damage the fibers of the fabric.
Alternatively, you can place a wet garment between two absorbent towels and apply gentle pressure to allow the towels to absorb some of the water. This will reduce moisture in the garment and help speed up the drying process.
use a dehumidifier
If you want to dry your clothes indoors, consider using a dehumidifier. This will help reduce moisture in the air, which will speed up the drying time of your clothes.
turn the clothes over
When you are drying pants, t-shirts or shirts, turn these items inside out. This will allow the normally less exposed inner side to dry faster.
Stacking too many items together is not recommended as this will restrict air flow and slow down the drying process. You can place kitchen towels or newspapers between layers of dense fabrics like towels or jeans. The paper will absorb some of the moisture, helping the garment to dry faster.
If you’re in a hurry and need to dry things quickly, you can use a hair dryer and set it on cool or warm. Always keep the dryer at a safe distance from the clothes and move the dryer constantly to prevent it from overheating or damaging fibers. This trick is especially useful for small garments or specific parts, such as cuffs or shirt collars. However, keep in mind that this is not the best option if you need to dry multiple clothes at the same time.
Remember that over-spinning delicate garments while spinning can damage the fibers over time, so balancing water removal with garment care is critical. It is always recommended to follow the clothing and washing machine manufacturer’s instructions for best results and long-term garment quality.
