1. Eliminate Creases with a Pool Noodle
Sick of those unsightly lines caused by your drying rack? Here's a hack that's easy and affordable. Take a basic pool noodle, make a cut along one side, and slide it onto your rack. Bye-bye, creases!
2. Use Aluminum Foil If You're Out of Dryer Sheets
So you've finished washing your clothes, but you're fresh out of dryer sheets. Now what? Look to your kitchen cabinets. Aluminum foil can be bundled up and used as a dryer sheet for up to six months.
3. Use a Dry-Erase Marker to Remember Items
Preserve delicate items with a friendly reminder. Use a dry-erase marker directly on your washing machine to make a list of clothing that needs to be removed for air-drying. Simply wipe away when finished.
4. Place Soap in Dispensers for Mess-Free Storage
Keep laundry detergent safely out of reach from children while keeping your laundry room mess-free by mounting soap dispensers that can be easily refilled.
5. Hang an Ironing Board with Hooks
Two wall hooks provide convenient storage for an ironing board.
6. Use a Mesh Bag to Organize Socks
Never misplace your sock's mate again. Hang a mesh bag on your laundry hamper with clothespins and fill with socks. Throw the entire bag into the wash and your pairing is practically complete.
7. Add a Towel to Dry Clothes Faster
Speed up drying time by throwing a dry towel into a load of wet clothes for the first 15 minutes of the drying cycle.
8. Try Toy Cars for a Hamper that Rolls
Moms, this one's for you. Put to use spare toy cars by hot-gluing them to the bottom of a hamper. Free rolling storage, at your service!
