Woman reveals the simple washing line hack that has changed her life

‘I don’t run out of space’: Mum discovers a simple new way of hanging clothes on the line that has shaved HOURS off her laundry time

  • A savvy mother has revealed her technique for dealing with loads of drying
  • She says her hack allows her to hang out three times as much on her clothes line 
  • The trick means the working mum can do all her family’s washing in just one day

A savvy Australian mum has revealed a simple technique which has halved the amount of time she spends drying her family’s laundry.  

Revealing details in a cleaning Facebook group, a working mum named Jessica said she’d been searching for a way to cut down the time she spent doing laundry when she came across a ‘genius’ idea.

The technique involves hanging out her washing across two lines rather than hanging each item individually over one line.

‘It saves me so much time and stress when getting all my washing done,’ Jessica wrote alongside photos demonstrating her version of the hack.

This woman’s hack reveals how easy it is to create extra space on a washing line by stacking washing vertically rather than pegging pieces side-by-side

The new method is far more practical than the traditional method (pictured) as more clothing can be hung out to dry at once

‘Being at work full-time and running a home, I do most of my washing on the weekend and all in one day now and I don’t run out of space,’ she added.

‘I hang towels, blankets, jackets, T-shirts all across two lines and still have so much room left.’

Big items were also given the same treatment, however, these were folded in half before they were hung to reduce space.

She said her photos show how she’d just hung out three loads and still had room for more.
