New washing line idea to try...
The response has been overwhelming, with a staggering total of 8.8k reactions and 1.1k comments of thanks and praise.
With cries of ‘game changer!!!’ and ‘Genius’ it’s safe to say the hack is hitting the right spot for making this household chore more efficient. You simply hang your clothes straight from the washing machine onto hangers. Then using your washing line clips you hang the top of the hanger, to allow for extra hanging space.
One member tags a friend saying,’…and you just hang them up when dry.’ That’s the beauty of this smart laundry hack, it saves space and also saves the job of hanging the clothes onto hangers before you up them into the wardrobe.
‘I feel like I’ve been doing my washing line wrong my whole life’ writes another awestruck fan.
Ad the praise continues. ‘What an awesome idea. Going to do this from now on. Thanks for the tip 😁’ writes one.
‘Thank you. Never taught of this. 💕 I needed space the other day. Thanks x’ says another delightfully.
