Laundry day is quite different if you live in a house with a garden or in a small apartment. If you have more space, it is easier to have a bigger wardrobe, a washing machine with bigger capacity and a tumble dryer, and even an outside space, where you can dry all your clothes.
With an apartment comes a limited amount of space but with some hacks you can turn your luck around and we are here to help you with that.
Get a slim washing machine
Did you know that washing machines come in different sizes? If you are living by yourself or with your partner, you will probably not need a machine as big as a family of five does. So, get a slim one to save some space and avoid unnecessarily higher electricity bills.
Get the most out of your space
When dealing with a smaller space you have to make the most out of what you have. One way to do that is to put higher spaces to use. The space above the washing machine can be a perfect place for some shelves where you can keep the detergent and softener. The corner behind the doors can become a place for dirty laundry basket and a storage box that can be filled with clean sheets or towels.
Find a better way to dry clothes
Drying racks can be big, get creative and find ones that suit your apartment – like vertical ones. However, the moist air can be a big factor for mold development. It is therefore recommended to get a tumble dryer if you can. Hisense introduced a new generation of PureStream tumble dryers that include Breeze Dry, drying that resembles air drying and can be used for delicate items, sportswear and even wool. Another program you will highly benefit from is Quick Dry, which will make your clothes dry faster and save you the time.
We are not suggesting you should be walking around with creased clothes, but there are ways to avoid ironing with some items. For instance, if you hang your clothes directly after the washing cycle is done and shake them well before doing so, they will be a lot less creased. Hisense tumble dryers also have Anti Crease Technology that makes sure items are creased less by automatically tumbling your load every few minutes for up to 3 hours. Another way to avoid getting that ironing board out is to get a steamer, which takes a lot less space and can be used on different surfaces and even hanged clothes.
Make the most out of your wardrobe
Living in an apartment there is a small chance that you will have a walk-in closet. But you can make more out of the space you have by using unconventional spaces. Like using a floating rack to put higher places above the shelves to good use. Or you can get some storage boxes and use them on lower places like underneath your bed.
