Here's How Ice Cubes Can Help Get Wrinkles Out Of Your Laundry
If you place a few ice cubes in your dryer with wrinkled items and start a dryer cycle, the melting ice cubes will turn your appliance into a steamer that eases out creases.
This hack could be a lifesaver, because unlike ironing or steaming, the dryer can run while you complete other tasks, such as brushing your teeth or combing your hair.
Another benefit of this trick is that if you forget a load of laundry in the dryer, you can pop a few ice cubes inside the dryer and run it again to remove wrinkles quickly.
Testing the hack on a flowy skirt, made from rayon and linen, with four ice cubes on the “more dry” setting proved to be effective, as most creases were removed after 35 minutes.
If you really hate ironing or don't have a steamer, this ice cube dryer hack could benefit you greatly, but be sure to choose a high and long dryer setting.
Keep in mind that the hack may work best on thinner articles of clothing like those made out of linen, and you will probably need at least 35 minutes to dry your items.
