In the video Liffie can be seen hanging up wet clothes onto the clothes horse with hangers. 

In the clip, which racked up over 390,000 views, she said: ‘My partner thought of a laundry hack and had to share it with you all.

‘If you’re like us you need to dry more clothes in a short period of time but you have to rely on an airer, then you need to try this.

‘Any clothes that go in drawers, just hang on the airer as normal and any clothes that get hung up, stick it on coat hangers and hang it on the airer.

‘This saves so much space and the hang-up stuff can be put straight in the wardrobe once it’s dry.’

She captioned the video: ‘This laundry hack has been an absolute game changer and we will continue to do it. 

‘No more folding 101 items of clothing (unless they go in drawers) Plus with hanging it up, I’m finding that clothing has minimal creasing too! This hack has become a permanent fixture in our house for sure.’

Many were impressed with the laundry hack while other admitted they have been doing it for years.
