Have you ever thought of taking your clothes out of the washing machine completely fresh, wrinkle-free and ready to wear immediately? Yes, you read that right – no ironing! At a time when every second counts, we all want to reduce the time we spend on household chores without sacrificing the quality and appearance of our clothes. We present to you a trick with aluminum foil that will leave your clothes impeccably smooth, without long ironing and unnecessary waiting for drying.

The trick to achieve your dream clothes without ironing is not a figment of the imagination, it really works and has quickly taken social media by storm. The key to success? Small balls made of aluminum foil. Yes, you heard that right. All you need are pieces of aluminum foil rolled into tennis ball-sized balls and placed in the washing machine drum with the clothes. For the same effect during drying, the foil balls can also be added to the dryer.

How It Works? During the wash, the aluminum foil balls will act as a natural fabric softener, adding softness to clothes, reducing wrinkles and preventing static build-up. The result: clothes without electrical charges, pleasantly soft to the touch and looking as if you just took them off the ironing board.
