A SAVVY mum has revealed her simple clothes drying hack which can slash your energy bill by up to £233 a year.
Kayleigh Taylor, from Fife, regularly shares cleaning hacks on TikTok – @cleanwith_kayleigh – where she boasts 2.1 million followers.
In a recent video, she showed herself catching up on a big pile of laundry.
And she used a bargain £13.99 purchase to make sure her clothes dried much quicker in the tumble dryer.
The Boss It rapid dryer ball reflects heat onto wet laundry within the drum which slashes the time and energy required to dry it.
Kayleigh said: "Had 45 minutes spare this afternoon to try and get some jobs done, so I had already washed my bed in this morning, so that was me just chucking in the dryer.
"If you haven't tried the Boss It rapid dryer ball yet then I highly recommend because it definitely speeds up your drying time.
"They work fab."
The average household on a dual fuel tariff is forking out £1,834 a year on gas and electricity compared to £1,277 two years ago.
And the high cost of energy has us all looking for ways to save on drying clothes – with many people choosing to ditch their tumble dryers completely, opting for a heated airer or dehumidifier instead.
