Cleaning enthusiasts have shared some of their top tips for speeding up the drying process for clothes that have been in the washing machine.
During the winter months, hanging laundry outside is seldom a viable option and therefore usually needs to be dried indoors.
However, this can present its own issues as space can be limited and it can leave your home damp and smelly.

“I would have liked to have a utility space, but I made it a home office. How do you dry your laundry? “

One of them wrote: “Whatever you decide, remember that the humidity has to go somewhere.
“Drying clothes indoors, other than using a dryer, will require a dehumidifier or you will cause all kinds of condensation and humidity problems.
“Opening a window every now and then is not enough, unfortunately I went there. “
Dehumidifiers remove water and moisture from the air, helping to reduce the build-up of mold and dust mites.
Although they can be expensive, they can last for several years.
A second added: “I have had a dehumidifier for years, it also helps to speed up the drying of clothes. “
“Absolutely agree,” rang a third.
Another user explained, “I have very limited radiator space in my house, so I’m going to put some of my drying on a rack and place a dehumidifier right next to it.
“Not only do I no longer worry about mold growth, but it speeds up the drying of clothes, it is a game-changer. “
Some in the group recommended investing in a space-saving dryer.
One of them suggested, “I have a clothes rack hanging from my ceiling in the kitchen and it’s awesome. It’s high so the laundry dries faster, I also plug in a dehumidifier in the winter to help reduce humidity.
Some wash racks adapt to the radiator, creating more space near a heat source for them to dry.
Some Ms Hinch fans have advised others to invest in a heated rack, with a comment, “I have the Aldi heated dryer, it works great, you just need to spin it a few times.
Another added: “I have an electric clothes horse which is really good. It also has shaped bars that fit sneakers.
While some may think they are a lot of energy, heated dryers are much more economical to use than dryers.
They can be purchased from different retailers, all varying in price.
