9 top laundry hacks

Doing laundry is one of those never-ending tasks that cuts into time you’d rather pretty much spend on anything else. It’s easy enough to toss in a load of clothes and then switch them over to the dryer later, but admittedly, it’s a bit of a pain. As soon as you think you’ve folded and put away the last pair of pants, you turn around to find a brand new mountain of dirty clothes in the basket.
It doesn’t have to be like this! Laundry should be one of your simplest chores, not the one that takes up every spare minute of your time. So before you start yet another load of laundry, consider throwing in the towel. Literally.

1. Dry towel trick
If you waited too long to start a load of laundry and part of the outfit you need still isn’t dry, there’s a way to run it through the dryer faster. Throw a clean, dry, white towel in the dryer with your other items and run the dryer for half its usual time. The towel will pull moisture out of your clothes, drying them more quickly.

2. Freeze your jeans
Washing your jeans after every wear will make the color fade faster and will weaken the fabric, making it easier to rip. If you’re worried about odor or germs between washes, put your jeans in the freezer overnight after you’ve worn them. This technique will freeze away odor and bacteria without damaging the denim.
