GETTING your clothes dry in winter can take more time than you often have – but one woman has an amazing hack to speed up the process using just a bedsheet.

One chore which can contribute to higher costs is drying your clothes after a whizz in the washing machine.
Luckily, one savvy cleaner has an amazing hack to get your laundry dry even quicker if you’re not able to rely on a tumble dryer.

She wrote: “I was always told if the ground is dry, no matter the season, your clothes will dry too, just takes a little longer.
“Little trick I learnt when winter comes is to get your clothes airer and a spare bed sheet and wrap it around the clothes airer.
“Attach it to the radiator or a heated fan and it traps the heat and dries the clothes quicker.”
The hack works due to the fact that the sheet helps to trap a warm pocket of air under the bed sheet.
