Lynsey Crombie detailed the tips in a “Cleaning Tips Tuesday” video. She explained “a few top tips to help you speed up your tumble drying during this dull miserable month.”

There are various ways the expert suggests making your drying a speedier experience.

The first was to add an extra spin when drying heavy items in the machine.

Cleaning aficionado Lynsey also suggested adding a tennis ball to your dryer drum.

She said: “Use tennis balls or tumble dryer balls to help space out your laundry and let the air flow.”

Controversially, perhaps, Lynsey suggested adding a wet tea towel to the drum to make drying faster.

It seems counterintuitive, but the cleaning guru said: “When the load is half dry throw in a wet tea towel.

“Some people add a dry tea towel but I tried this and it didn’t work so experimented with a really wet one and the difference was amazing.”

Lastly, do not overload the machine. This prevents the dryer from working effectively and will slow the process down.

Fans responded to the suggestions in the comments. One wrote: “Ooh the wet tea towel is an interesting one!”

“The wet towel one is interesting. I’ll give it a go,” another said.

Another said: “Saw this tip somewhere years ago.

“I fold large items like bedsheets and towels before putting them in. They tangle far less; therefore dry quicker.”

The cleaning guru who appears regularly on This Morning suggested the steam from the wet tea towel helps speed up the drying time.

She told fans she soaks a clean tea towel in a bowl of water before adding it to her drying.

It comes after a Mrs. Hinch fan shared a trip for speeding up drying on a Facebook page.

They suggested using a dehumidifier if air drying inside.

Chrissy McAllen commented: “Drying clothes indoors, other than using a tumble dryer, will need a dehumidifier or you will cause all sorts of problems with condensation and dampness.

“Opening a window now and then isn’t enough, I’ve been there, unfortunately.”

Lynsey recently shared an oil diffuser hack for easily removing plastic stoppers. 

Former This Morning presenter Ruth Langsford called the tip “genius”.

Lynsey posted “the simplest way to remove a top from a diffuser” on her Instagram account, wowing fans who had struggled with the difficult task.
