You have no items in your basket!
We can all agree, the summer months should be spent in the sun, at the seaside or slurping on an ice lolly. Getting the time to bask in the British summer sun is too precious to be spent on endless ironing piles and laundry loads.
That’s why we’ve put together our top tips for saving time on laundrycare this season with Vileda.
Less Time on the Ironing Pile
Choosing the right tools for the job can make all the difference to your ironing routine and exactly how long you spend on this household chore. We would recommend investing in an ironing board with a larger surface area as this will save you time and energy when it comes to de-creasing bed linen and heavier garments.
There’s a reason the Vileda Total Reflect Ironing Board was voted Ideal Home Magazine’s Best Ironing Board 2019 and continues to be a household favourite. Its large surface area and metallized foil layer, which reflects steam and heat back into garments, is ideal for whizzing through the ironing pile.
This summer, YouTube cleaning sensation and #ViledaProud homemaker Hayley’s Help gave us a sneak peak into her Vileda Laundrycare routine and shared her thoughts on the Total Reflect Ironing Board. You can watch the full video here.
It’s All About the Spin Cycle
How you wash your clothes will also have a big impact on your ironing time. To help reduce creases on your garments, try cutting down your spin cycle.
Who Says it has to be Boring?
If you’re still in need of some time-saving tricks why not try the following while tackling the ironing pile:
- Listen to an audiobook
- Pop on your favourite podcast
- Binge on a Netflix season
Trust us, the time (and the ironing pile) will fly past!
Save Time with the Right Indoor Dryer
If you’ve got a large washing load, finding the drying space to fit your weekly washing can add extra time and stress to your laundry routine. The Vileda Extra X-Legs Airer has 20 metres of drying space, as well as an attachment for holding small items. It features extra thick wires that help to reduce creasing on your garments, which means saving time when it comes to the ironing.
If you’re still scrambling for space with your indoor drying the Vileda Express Radiator Airer is a versatile and handy clothes dryer that fits nicely onto your radiator and speeds up drying time for smaller garments.
Outdoor Drying in the Summer Months
The summer season isn’t just great for catching a few rays in the garden, it’s also the perfect time for outdoor clothes drying. We would suggest trying to pick a day that’s sunny but also breezy – this will help to speed up drying time. Before you start hanging, it’s worth taking your time to avoid extra ironing and shake each item to release wrinkles, then smooth each piece of clothing as it’s hung.
Be smart and efficient with your laundry and use the Vileda 60m Supadry Hoist Clothes Dryer. You can easily wind down the dryer to a suitable height for easy loading and the breeze brake prevents rotation while you’re trying to hang washing. Then you can wind up the lines into the breeze to maximise drying. It’s the little things that will make a big difference to how long you spend on the laundry this summer.
Now it’s time to get out into the garden and enjoy your stress-free summer!
