2. Shorten Your Dryer Vent
If you’ve ever wished your dryer could get through that big batch of jeans a little faster, you’ll love this laundry room life hack. Pull your dryer out from the wall a little bit, and look at your vent hose. Is there extra tubing that curls around before it finally vents out the wall? If so, you can cut your dryer’s work time by up to 20% just by shortening that hose so it goes right outside without the extra looping. Just remove the clamp (there’s usually just one screw), but off the excess tubing, then clamp it back in place. This will allow the air to leave your dryer faster, taking the moisture from your clothes right along with it. Plus, you’ll save a few bucks on your electricity or gas bill. Can we call this cleaning life hack a win?
