This Genius Ice Cube Dryer Hack Means You’ll Never Have To Iron Again
Deyan Dimitrov, CEO of the brand Laundryheap, explained how the heat from the appliance would cause the ice cubes to melt and in turn create steam.
The DIY steamer would effectively smooth out the creases, resulting in freshly 'ironed' clothes that are ready to wear as soon as you take them out of the dryer.
This could be the perfect solution for anyone who hates taking out the ironing board once the laundry's done.
The hack is similar to another well-known tip that involves placing creased clothes in the bathroom while you shower so the steam removes any light creases. It helps if the clothes are hanging from a hanger.
Good Morning America shared a clip on their YouTube channel in 2018 showing how well the hack works.
In the video, a man attempts to dry his shirt in just three minutes and pops three ice cubes in with his laundry into the dryer.

Once the cycle is done, the shirt is visibly crease free without having to take out the ironing board.
If you're thinking of trying this hack at home, remember to not overload the dryer. Just use a few items of clothing, as it works best when there is extra room.
In related news, towel designer and expert Lucy Ackroyd recently revealed the best way to wash towels to keep them feeling soft and fluffy.
The first tip Lucy advises is to wash your towels separately. Sure, it's easy to just bung in a whole stack of laundry into the machine - but Lucy reveals that this can stop them from becoming lovely and fluffy.
"When washing your towels, never overload the machine. The towels need plenty of room within the drum to breathe and circulate, allowing them to be rinsed and fluffed up properly," she explains.
"If you try stuff too many in, you'll end up with a clumped together heap, with moisture pockets throughout, leading to scratchy, stiff towels.
"Make sure to wash your towels separately to your other laundry to avoid any colour or fibres transferring onto your beautiful pristine towels."
