Helpful Hint

I decided to share a little helpful hint today that has rescued me a many a time! Y'all know what happens when you're in your own little world and you forget about your clothes in the dryer, right? Come on now.....I know I'm not the only 'space cadet' in this here bloggersphere! You all know what I'm talkin' about.....you put the clothes in the dryer, shut the door, punch the settings, push start and then you go about your business and wait for the buzzer/beeper to go off. By the time you realize that you've completely forgotten about the clothes and didn't here the dryer go off, it's too late. What are you left with? A huge wrinkled mess of clothes!

I know, I know, you're thinkin'......hey not to worry, I'll just fluff these puppies, but we all know that doesn't always cut it. There are some types of material that you can never get those wrinkles out of, even if you try to iron them, so you might as well just start all over and rewash them. Well, what I'm about to tell you will totally rock your world! No more starting over and rewashing your clothes girls. Here's the trick......you take a dish towel (I always use a linen towel, so I won't get lint on my clothes), wet the towel, wring it out a little bit, toss it in the dryer with your now-dried-wrinkled mess and turn on the dryer. It's that simple! By the time the dish towel is dry, the huge wrinkles will be gone. If you don't have a linen dish towel, you can even use a cotton pillowcase, to do the trick. I do hope this little 'helpful hint' will make your life a little easier! Next week I'll be sharing another one that I truly cannot live without! Trust me, you don't wanna miss it, so be lookin' for it. :o)

  6. Hey Molly, it happens to me more times than I would like to admit! I guess I really should pay more attention to things goin' on around me. :)

  8. I use a sock or two. Yep. A sock. If I forget my uniform's in the dryer, it gets wrinkled very fast. (Polyester... ) But a sock works perfectly. :) Even better, I have warm socks when its all done. :D
