I often don't have time to separate laundry. No, that's not quite true, I often don't care enough to separate laundry (LOL) and I have a feeling that I'm not alone in my 'sloth'. Actually, it works out well for me.
I try to wash the shirts and drip-dry things first, in a full load. If there's more room, I just continue to put, put, put until the washer is full. When they're done, I pop the shirts into the dryer and set the timer for 12 minutes. (HALF a Bounce sheet is plenty) While that's drying, I hang all the delicates and drip dry things. I invested in one of those laundry room standing things ($20.00) and it was twenty of the best dollars I've ever invested. The shirts will be a little damp when the timer goes off. I smooth them out, fold the collars down and hang them to finish drying. It's amazing how little ironing is necessary using this method.
I hate to iron so have used the old damp wash cloth trick plenty of times LOL!
I drip dry many of our clothes. I use liquid softener which does a good job of getting the wrinkles out. Vinegar works well too as a softener.
Enjoyed the post and the tips!
WE ALWAYS HANG OUR SHIRTS TO DRY. IN THE SUMMER ON THE CLOTHES LINE AND IN THE WINTER ON HANGERS. PUTS A LITTLE MOISTURE IN THE AIR AND A GOOD SCENT FROM THE FABRIC SOFTENER &
CUTS DOWN ON DRYER USAGE
