  • Let's face it, no one likes doing the laundry -- it's tedious, tiring, and it takes a lot of time to accomplish. However, it's a chore that we can't avoid as we always need fresh clothes to wear for school or work. To help you out, we've come up with a list of smart hacks that can make the task of washing clothes a lot easier. Check out how you can remove stains in a snap and how to get fluffier towels below:


    1. Use ice cubes to freshen up a worn shirt.

     

    If you have newly bought tees or something you've worn for a few hours and would like to freshen it up, toss it in the dryer with an ice cube for 5 to 10 minutes and it will be smooth in no time. This trick gets rid of mild odors, too!


    2. Use your dryer as a garment steamer. 


    Got a few wrinkled pieces that could use ironing? Instead of going through the trouble of setting up a board and plugging in appliances, you can just put your clothes into the dryer with a damp hand towel and let it spin for 15 minutes on a low-heat setting to make it look freshly pressed.

    3. Use aluminum foil for fluffier towels. 


    For softer and more absorbent towels, you can drop a balled-up sheet of foil into the dryer instead of dryer sheets. This hack reduces static electricity, too!


    4. Use conditioner to unshrink clothes.

    There's nothing worse than accidentally shrinking your favorite top or go-to party dress. No need to worry as soaking the item in a mix of water and hair conditioner for a few minutes, then carefully stretching it back to its original size, might do the trick.
