A mother has discovered a ‘genius’ trick that doubles the space on a drying rack for wet laundry – and all you need is a box of coat hangers.
Australian cleaning blogger Liesl Elizabeth came up with a solution to the age-old problem of an overcrowded drying rack by placing large garments on hangers and hooking them around the edge.
Her ‘life-changing’ hack, which frees up enough space to accommodate more than 70 items, has sparked a wave of excitement since it was posted to TikTok, with many in disbelief that they never thought of it before.

‘Show me the life hack that you randomly saw one day that is now unconscious standard process in your life, I’ll go first,’ the founder of Clean Freak Cleaning Co wrote in the caption.
The video shows a drying rack laden with 32 pieces of clothing, overlapping and squashed tight together to fit on the rail.
Liesl pans the camera to a pile of wet washing sitting on her dining table with no room to hang it up.
She then films herself hanging smaller items such as socks and underwear across the rails through the middle of the rack, while placing the remainder onto coat hangers and hooking them around the edge.
Using hangers more than doubled her drying space – and people are impressed.
