How to dry washed clothes quickly: a simple "burrito" method

With the help of a towel, any item can be dried many times faster

Drying laundry in the cold season can be a challenge if you don't have a tumble dryer. The process will be especially problematic if you have a large family and have to wash a lot of clothes at once and do it often.

However, experts say that the so-called "burrito method" or "shawarma method" can help speed up drying. OBOZ.UA tells you more about it. To use this life hack, you need a little space on the floor and a large towel.

Spread out the towel, place the wet item on it, and then wrap it as if you were rolling a burrito or shawarma. When the item is completely wrapped in the towel, press the resulting roller with your knees to squeeze as much water out of the fabric as possible. It will be absorbed by the "wrapper" of your burrito and the T-shirt or sweater will be much drier when you take it out of the towel.

If for some reason you are uncomfortable kneeling, you can squeeze the burrito with your hands. The main thing is that the towel should be dry and able to absorb as much of the squeezed moisture as possible.

Experts say that this life hack does not harm the fabric because you do not deform the fibers, only squeeze them, and drying after that will take only a couple of hours, not all night. After such a squeeze, the clothes can be warmed up a little with a hairdryer or iron and then they will dry even faster.
