The brilliant little hack to ‘speed up’ drying laundry during winter

This Morning: Queen of Clean shares tips for drying clothes

With the UK enjoying something of an Indian summer lots of us will have been taking the opportunity to get our washing dry in the garden. 

By this time of year it’s normally the case that we’ll be drying everything indoors. 

And unless you have enough money to have the heating on full blast all day, that can be a slow process. 

But fans of cleaning guru Mrs Hinch have shared some advice on dedicated Facebook pages on how to dry clothes inside during the winter months.

Posting on the Mrs Hinch Cleaning Tips Facebook page, one woman asked for some drying advice.

Naomi White wrote: “Could I ask how you all dry your washing indoors? I use a dryer and hang non-dryer items in the hall on a rail but I have put it away due to having lots of people over.

“I wish I had a utility space but I turned that into a home office. How do you guys dry your washing?”

Drying clothes indoors during the winter months can be tricky, especially if there is no access to a tumble dryer.

Group members took to the comments to share their advice on tips Naomi could try.

Chrissy McAllen commented: “Whatever you decide please remember the moisture needs to go somewhere. 

“Drying clothes indoors, other than using a tumble dryer, will need a dehumidifier or you will cause all sorts of problems with condensation and dampness.

“Opening a window now and then isn’t enough, I’ve been there unfortunately.”

Dehumidifiers help to remove water and moisture from the air, helping to reduce the buildup of mould and dust mites.

Although they can be expensive, they can last for several years.

GC Cornbill added: “I have had a dehumidifier for years, it helps to speed up drying clothes too.”

William Howells wrote: “Absolutely agree.”

Claire Linda explained: “I have very limited radiator space in my house so I will put some of my drying on a rack and place a dehumidifier right near to it.

“Not only am I no longer worried about mould building up, it makes clothes dry so much quicker, it’s a game changer.”

Some group members recommended investing in a space-saving drying rack.

Emma Manley wrote: “I’ve got a washing rack which hangs from my ceiling in the kitchen and it’s brilliant. It’s up high so the washing dries faster, I also plug in a dehumidifier in the winter to help reduce the moisture.”

Some washing racks fit onto the radiator, creating more space close to a heat source for them to dry.

Some Mrs Hinch fans advised others to invest in a heated clothes rack.

Alison Tamsworth commented: “I have the Aldi heated drying rack, it works really well, just have to rotate it a few times.”

Sharon Coe said: “I’ve got an electric airer which is really good. It’s also got shaped bars that fit trainers on.”

While some people may think they use up a lot of energy, heated drying racks are much more economical to run than tumble dryers.

They can be purchased from various different retailers, all varying in price.
