DIY Wrinkle Relieving Spray

You can say goodbye to wrinkles by putting away the ironing board.

This homemade wrinkle spray is a good choice. This easy ironing solution has only three ingredients

  1. Conditioner for hair
  2. Vinegar
  3. Water

Okay, those are just two! It’s a great idea. Fritz, shake, wear. It’s so easy!

Reduce Dryer Time

This is my favorite trick to reduce the drying time of clothes in the dryer.

Before you dry your load, add a fluffy, dry towel.

You clothes will dry faster

Paint Stick to Remove Lint Buildup

Even if you empty the dryer’s lint trap after each load, there could still be lint buildup that could cause a fire. It is important to clean out the dryer’s lint trap every once in a while.

A paint stir stick’s end can be wrapped with a clean rag. Clean out the area using the rag-covered sticks to remove the lint trap. You can help the lint stick better to your rag by dampening it first with water.

Use a Salad Spinner

To remove excess water from clothing, you can use a salad spinner. Hang them on a rack for drying.

Aluminum foil is a good choice

You can also use aluminum foil to make dryer sheets if you don’t have any. Aluminum foil will help to keep your clothes separate and prevent static buildup.

Clean Your Machine

Regular washing of your washer is necessary. Your washer should be set to the highest load setting and highest water temperature every couple of months. Let the washer run for one minute while you add a quarter of a cup of white vinegar to the mixture. Let the mixture rest for one hour before opening the lid. To remove any buildup, scrub the lid with a toothbrush. Let the cycle run for an hour and then do a second hot cycle to get rid of any residue. You will be a blessing to your clothes.
