Laundry expert Deyan Dimitrov, CEO of the brand Laundryheap, recommends that you throw some ice cubes in the dryer while your clothes are drying.
He revealed that the heat released by the dryer will melt the ice cubes, which will then produce steam that reduces creases.
Your clothes therefore come out freshly 'ironed' after being steamed within the dryer itself.
If you do want to try the hack at home, you should ensure that you don't overfill the dryer and that there is plenty of room - as the clothes will need extra space to benefit from the steam.
According to the Daily Star, the hack should only take around 10 minutes.
You should always check the label on your clothes before drying them - as some may not be suitable for tumble dryers.
