Whenever the rainy season comes, one of the immediate concerns every homemaker has is laundry. After all, laundry is not an easy chore. Once you’re done buying a washing machine to help efficiently clean your family’s clothes, it’s also important to figure out how to dry them properly.
To help you get through this, here are some home tips you should keep in mind to dry your laundry faster even when indoors:
Remove excess water
Once clothes are done washed, it’s not advisable to immediately hang it up to dry. Hanging wet clothes can only result in an increase in moisture and humidity in the house. This may affect not only your garments but your family’s health as well. So, remove as much excess water as you can. Afterward, this would be the perfect time to use your dryer.
Invest in an indoor clothing rack
Since the sun is gone most of the time, you’ll probably end up hanging your clothes inside your home. This is no issue as long as you have an indoor clothing rack to use or a space to put your clothing lines on. Be reminded to leave an ample amount of space between clothes for air.
Use of other appliances
Once you've hanged your clothes, you can hasten the process with the use of a fan or heater if you have any. If this doesn’t work for you, another trick is to set your laundry up in your room while the air conditioner is on. Leave them overnight to help the clothes dry faster.
Drying clothes indoors are tricky because of the various factors involved in it. If you have a spare budget, you may also invest in a clothes dryer which can save you from these troubles. This is ideal for thicker garments which are hard to wring and takes longer to dry.
Although it may take longer than usual to do laundry during the rainy season, it is possible. Afterall, homemakers do their best to work with what they have.
