The mum airs her entire family’s laundry on multiple racks strategically hung up in the bath tub when the weather isn’t good enough for the washing line
A mum has revealed her handy hack for drying the whole family’s clothes without using a tumble dryer to save pennies.
The mum airs her entire family’s laundry on multiple racks strategically hung up in the bath tub when the weather isn’t good enough for the washing line.
She shared her tip on Facebook to help others save on the cost of using a tumble dryer – if they even have one – as energy costs rise.
She wrote: “My little laundry tip. Might be an obvious one already but hopefully it will help at least one person.
“With the energy costs changing I thought I would share what I do with my laundry when I am unable to put it outside on the washing line.
“I’m actually not lucky enough to have space for a tumble drier so when it’s wet I do this.”
She said she uses hangers to hang everyone’s tops in age order along the shower rail.
This helps her then sort out everyone’s dry clothes in order so it’s ready to take to their rooms, the Sun reports.
She says she can usually fit two loads of washing in the bath with two airers.
The mum says she puts out the washing in the morning while everyone is at work and school and it is usually dry by the next day.
