Eliminate the need for an iron (almost)

I am always looking for ways to save time and  money.  To make clothes last longer and significantly decrease the amount of ironing you have to do, damp dry your clothes instead of drying them all the way.  The first rule of thumb is to never let the dryer stop and sit idle with the clothes in it.  The longer the clothes sit in the dryer the more wrinkles they will have.  I stop the dryer about 2/3 of the way through the cycle and hang the clothes up immediately.  I keep a drying rack in my laundry room for this purpose. The clothes pictured have not been ironed and are virtually wrinkle free.  Some shirts do better if hung upside down with clothespins. I have a folding wooden drying rack I use for this purpose. Using this method you save both time and electricity.  All that lint you get out of the dryer is your clothes slowly disintegrating. The less time the clothes spend in the dryer the less they break down making them last longer.

Thanks for visiting. Hope you have a frugal day.  Please like and share.
