Simple, surprising ways to get rid of wrinkles and static cling. Plus: how to fluff up your blankets and towels!

Did you know that with the help of a few household items, your dryer could de-wrinkle your clothes, make blankets fluffier and eliminate static cling?

WHAT YOU NEED: ICE

WHAT IT DOES: REMOVES WRINKLES

  1. Turn your dryer to the highest heat setting.
  2. Toss in a light load.
  3. Add a few ice cubes.
  4. Dry for at least 10 minutes.

WHY IT WORKS: As the ice melts, it produces steam that reduces wrinkles.

WHAT YOU NEED: TENNIS BALLS

WHAT IT DOES: ADDS FLUFFINESS

  1. Toss a few new tennis balls in with towels, blankets, pillows, or fluffy coats.
  2. Run the load as usual.

WHY IT WORKS: The movement of the balls add extra volume to your softest items.

WHAT YOU NEED: ALUMINIUM FOIL

WHAT IT DOES: REDUCES STATIC CLING

  1. Tightly roll up aluminium foil into a few balls that measure 2-3 inches in diameter.
  2. Toss in with clean, wet clothes to reduce static cling.

WHY IT WORKS: Aluminium foil helps absorb the electrical charges.
