Cleaning fans shared the tip in the Facebook Group Mum’s Who Clean and it’s left Facebook users wowed. 

The hack is very simple, after a normal wash cycle you leave your clothes in the washing machine for an extra cycle. 

Some washing machines have an additional cycle called ‘Extra rinse’ where the washing machine spends an additional 10 minutes pulling extra water out of your clothes.

After this you hang your clothes dry as usual.

A second user claimed: “I’ve always had to do this. We don’t have a drier so washing has to dry on indoor drying racks during winter.

A third person commented: “If I don’t run them through a second spin cycle in winter they take two days to dry and end up with a horrible damp smell.”
