WARNING: WE'RE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGED DRYERS
An expert has revealed that if you chuck some ice cubes into the dryer your clothes will come out crease-free.
This could well mean that the ironing chore may be a thing of the past.
Laundryheap CEO, Deyan Dimitrov, explained how the heat from the appliance would cause the ice cubes to melt and, in turn, create steam. Magical science, huh?
The DIY steamer would effectively iron out the creases leaving you with clothes that are ready to wear as soon as you remove them. Otherwise known as 'the dream'.
This could be the perfect solution for someone who is in a rush, hates the task of having to set up the ironing board or simply finds it really tricky to do.
Back in 2018, Cristina Margolis, a contributor for POPSUGAR said that the ice cube hack has left her not having to pick up an iron in years.
She said that by placing two to three cubes in your dryer and setting it on high heat for a matter of minutes leaves your clothes wrinkle-free.
She continued to write: "By doing this, your dryer is essentially steaming your clothes, because the ice cubes melt into water, and it becomes hot enough to create steam. The steam mixed with the hot temperature takes the place of what an iron does.
"Just try not to overload your dryer, because this hack works best when you're working with just a few articles of clothing."
People are loving the idea and have taken to social media to share their delight. One said: "Put some ice cubes in the dryer and toss that shirt in there with them. Turn the dryer on."
I found a life tip: "Wrinkly shirt? Throw it in the dryer with a few ice cubes for 5 minutes. Wrinkles gone!"- Berzouh A (@ABerzouh) January 12, 2021
Another added: "Pro (lazy person) tip - leave them in the dryer as long as you want and then when you're ready to fold them, throw 2 ice cubes in and turn the dryer back on for about 15 mins. Gets rid of all the wrinkles."
Others aren't as convinced, with one writing: "Well the 'put three ice cubes in your tumble dryer' trick still means I have an Everest sized mountain of ironing to do... Oh joy! Back to the ironing board."
