Nobody really likes doing laundry. It is a constant chore that seems never-ending. Just when you have all of the laundry done more dirty clothes show up. If you have to do laundry you might as well save a little bit of money and some time while doing it too.
Check out these easy money saving laundry hacks. They will help get you out of the laundry room faster and have you spending less money too!
Dry Clean At Home
Most dry clean clothes can be washed at home. Save yourself the expense of dry cleaning and try cleaning them yourself. You can often use the gentle cycle on the machine or hand wash clothes instead of using the dry cleaners. Check out how to wash dry clean clothing to save money in the laundry room.
Use Less Soap
Using less soap is one of the easiest money saving laundry hacks. Laundry soap is often overused causing clothes to become stiff and filled with soap residue. It also causes more wear and tear on your washer. You can try using less soap in each laundry cycle to save some money. Try using a little less on each load of laundry you wash. As long as your clothes are coming out clean and free from smells you are good!
Vinegar Instead Of Fabric Softener
Fabric softener is a lifesaver in the winter. Nobody wants to deal with static clothes. To keep your clothes soft and static free try using 1/2 cup vinegar instead of an expensive fabric softener. It works great and you can't even smell the vinegar. If you want your clothes smelling even better you can try making this lavender vinegar fabric softener. It only takes a few minutes to make and leaves your clothes smelling fresh.
Clean Your Dryer
Cleaning your dryer vent will help dry your clothes faster and help your dryer last longer. Plus, cleaning your dryer vent can help prevent house fires. It only takes about 20-30 minutes every 6 months to help keep your dryer vent clean. Check out how to clean your dryer vent as an easy money saving laundry hack.
Make Your Own Wrinkle Releaser
If you hate ironing but still want your clothes to look freshly ironed you can use wrinkle releaser. It's cheap to make your own wrinkle releaser at home too. 2 tablespoons of fabric softener will make a large batch of wrinkle releaser that lasts you for months. Save some time and money with this easy money saving laundry hack.
Ditch Dryer Sheets
Get rid of those dryer sheets and instead make some dryer balls. They are easy to make and can be used over and over again. Dryer balls not only help prevent static cling on your clothes but they also shorten the drying time of clothes which helps save you even more money and time. Ditching dryer sheets is one of the best money saving laundry hacks. See step by step directions for making your own dryer balls.
Clean Your Washer
Taking a few minutes every couple of months to clean your washer can help it to last longer. Run an empty load of hot water with bleach and then later an empty load with vinegar. When the loads are finished running you can wipe down the machine. It keeps the washing machine free from soap build up and lasting longer. It's one of my favorite money saving laundry hacks.
Nothing will ever make laundry fun but with these money saving laundry hacks you can save some time and some money. Want some other laundry tips? Check out this ultimate list of laundry tips to save you time.

We just recently thought our dryer was breaking, but my husband took the back off and vacuumed it out and it's drying clothes faster now & working just fine! Thanks for your tips!
Yay! So glad it was a cheap and inexpensive fix. We thought the same thing with our dryer. It's amazing the difference it makes once it's vacuumed out.
