By leaving your t-shirts and trousers to dry on a hanger – out on the washing line or on a drying rack – they'll dry with fewer creases. When hanging clothes directly on an airer, some creases are inevitable where the material folds around the metal of the rack.

Likewise, pegs tend to leave a mark on clothing. But by putting the wet clothes directly onto a hanger straight out of the washing machine, you help them to dry crease-free. When drying clothes indoors on a rack, using hangers also gives the clothes more air.

Clothes might not look perfectly pressed, but you can definitely get away with not ironing them. For more from the Tap to Tidy author, we tried Stacey Solomon’s unusual coat hanger hack for making the bed - and it worked!

Plus, you can consult our guide on how to wash clothes to make sure you're doing it as efficiently as possible. Our care and cleaning channel is also brimming with advice.

Other members of the group shared their tips. One suggested using washing line clothes hanger hooks available at Amazon, so you don't have to use pegs.

Hanging clothes in this way, then giving them a quick spray with a Lenor Crease Release product, is another way to save time ironing.

Emma said that Stacey Solomon's washing line hack had really helped her as it means her children can put their clothes away themselves. It also means a lot less time spent folding.

Another said, 'I do this with kids' school uniforms. Dry, hung up, and no creases.'

Admittedly, the Great British climate doesn't always make drying clothes out in our gardens easy. However, on dry days it's by far the best method.
