It can be incredibly frustrating when your washing doesn’t dry when it’s been on the airer for days, especially when more dirty laundry is building up. With the rising cost of living affecting households, drying wet clothing may be even harder this year. To help other mums struggling to dry laundry, a mum has shared a hack online.

Posting on the Mrs Hinch Cleaning Tips forum on Facebook, which has more than 109,000 members, one mum suggested using a bed sheet to dry clothing. Jordan Burden wrote: “I was always told if the ground is dry, no matter the season, your garments will dry too, just takes a little longer. “Little trick I learnt when winter comes is to get your garments airer and a spare bed sheet and wrap it around the clothes airer. “Attach it to the radiator or a heated fan and it traps the heat and dries the clothes quicker.” READ MORE: Time of day when cost of doing laundry can be ‘50%’ cheaper

Daniel Nezhad, Director of UK Radiators, explained: “Ventilate the area…contrary to popular belief, you shouldn’t opt to trap the heat in your home by keeping the windows as well as also doors shut tight. “When there are wet clothes filling the area, this will dampen the air in the room and also make it near impossible for washing to completely completely dry in good time. “If the clothes are damp, as well as the air is damp, you’re giving the cleaning no possibility to lose its moisture.
