Mrs. Hinch fans give a ‘game changer’ tip for drying clothes during winter

Cleaning our homes might not be the most exciting thing to do, but expert Mrs. Hinch helps keep things interesting.

Now her fans have shared a “game-changing” method for helping people dry their clothes quickly during the winter months.

While the weather is cooler, it can be more difficult to dry clothes.

Excessive heat indoors with closed windows has also been linked to breathing problems and mold due to trapped moisture.

Drying clothes indoors during the winter months can be difficult, especially if there is no possibility to use a clothes dryer.

Even if you have a dryer, these are very expensive to run.

Mrs. Hinch has become an internet sensation, after she began sharing unusual cleaning tips and tricks, Yorkshire Live reports.

Now, her fans regularly share their own tips on dedicated Facebook pages, such as how to dry clothes indoors during the winter months.

One woman asked for some advice about drying, by posting on Mrs. Hinch’s cleaning Facebook page.

Naomi White wrote: “Can I ask how do you dry your laundry indoors? I use a dryer and hang undried things in the hall on a rail but I put it away because there are too many people.”

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

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

Chrissie McAllen added: “Whatever you decide on, please remember that moisture needs to go somewhere.

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

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

Dehumidifiers help remove water and moisture from the air, which helps reduce mold and dust mite formation.

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

Machine dehumidifiers don’t have to be expensive – most supermarkets sell passive dehumidifiers for around £3 that simply use crystals in a box that absorbs moisture from the air. It’s not as fast as electric, but it works.

JC Kornbell added, “I’ve had a dehumidifier for years, and it helps speed clothes drying too.”

“I totally agree with you,” wrote William Howells.

Claire Linda said, “I have very limited space for the radiator in my house, so I’m going to put some drying on a rack and put the dehumidifier right near it.

“Not only do I worry about mold forming anymore, it makes clothes dry a lot faster, it’s a game changer.”

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

Emma Manley writes, “I have a laundry rack that hangs from the ceiling in the kitchen and it’s great. It’s elevated so the laundry dries faster, and I even plug in a dehumidifier in the winter to help reduce humidity.”
