An innovative mother has wowed Facebook users after sharing her unusual method for drying clothes.
While those who own a tumble dryer have no worries, many Brits are forced to hang their clothes on a drying rack at home… and resist the urge to put damp clothes on the radiator.
Today a savvy woman shared her nifty hack which means you can avoid having wet clothes around the house, and it can even save on heating bills.
An innovative mum shared her unusual method of drying clothes on a bargain Facebook group – and all you need is a pop-up greenhouse
Anyone with a small outdoor space can try this method, which simply requires purchasing a small pop-up greenhouse.
Posting on Facebook group Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK, the woman shared a photo of her tent-like greenhouse.
She said: “I thought I’d share my tip for drying clothes. Not for everyone but it works for us. A plastic greenhouse for £46. We don’t have room for large dryers inside and it’s also not ideal for doing wet laundry due to the fact that we have asthmatic children.
The woman had placed her clothes rack in the plastic greenhouse, sheltered from the British weather.
She explained: “We only have storage heaters, so we can’t dry clothes there either. Next spring I will put the greenhouse to good use and grow plants with my children.
Homeowners can buy pop-up greenhouses on Amazon for just £14.99, or head to DIY stores to buy one in person.
The technique has proven popular with homeowners across the UK praising the woman for her affordable trick.
One person wrote: “This is a fantastic idea! I don’t have a garden, but I have an enclosed balcony where I dry my laundry, usually using a dehumidifier.
Another impressed Facebook user added: “If I buy a smaller greenhouse I can put it on top of the aerator and dehumidifier and it should dry faster too, saving more on the cost of the dehumidifier . I’m super glad you posted because it’s not something I would have thought of.’
Homeowners won’t have to break the bank with this technique, as there are many affordable plastic greenhouses available for purchase in-store or online.
Savvy savers can buy their ephemeral greenhouses sold on Amazon for as little as £14.99.
