ENERGY bills are impossible to avoid.
We’re often trying to find ways to lessen our usage and bring down our monthly spending.
One TikToker, the organization expert @Carolina.McCauley, said she knows at least one way we can reduce our carbon footprint—and we can save ourselves time while doing it.
Her trick addresses how we clean our clothes.
Although the washing cycle for laundry is usually relatively quick, it can take hours for the clothes to dry in the next machine.
But Carolina said if you add a clean, dry towel to your drying load, you can cut that time by 30%.
All you need to do is put the towel in the dryer with your clothes at the beginning of the cycle and remove it after 15 minutes.
The fabric’s properties will help absorb some of the moisture from your soaked clothing.

Carolina is a pro when it comes to tricks like these.
Recently, she posted a video that offered three different hacks to improve your home cleaning methods.
Her first tip involved separating an egg white from the yolk.
Rather than try to balance the yolk between the cracked eggshells and create a mess, just place a slotted spoon above a bowl and crack the egg into that.
The slotted spoon’s small slits will allow the whites to seep through but will hold the yolk in place.
Her second piece of advice was to clean your laundry washing machine dispenser tray. Simply pull out the tray and give it a run in the dishwasher.
The cleaning guru’s final tip solved the issue of a sticky laundry detergent cap.
To remove the gunk that builds on the cap from using it to pour detergent, just throw the cap in the washing machine with a dirty clothes load.
