When it's wet and cold, the idea of getting through the ever-growing pile of laundry can feel overwhelming - and a little unachieveable.
But one expert has found a clever way to make it easier and, more importantly, faster when using a clothes dryer.
It turns out the secret to cutting your drying time down may be as simple as adding something a little extra to your load of wet clothes — a tea towel.
Cleaning expert Shannon Lush claims the odd technique will dry your clothes a third faster than not including the tea towel.
"It wicks the water away and spreads the surface area for the dryer to do its work," she told Australian TV show Sunrise on Sunday.
