Cleaning-mad mum reveals why you should ALWAYS hang your whites on the washing line
ONCE a load of washing is done, it's much easier, and quicker, to simply pop it all in the dryer and let it go to work.
But if you're lucky enough to have a yard and a clothes line, there is one very good reason you should be using it to dry your washing – in particular your whites.
While many people dry their clothes outside simply to save money on electricity usage, cleaning obsessed mum Mrs D said it actually helps makes your clothes cleaner too.
Sharing the hack on her Instagram page where she boasts over 40k followers, she revealed that not only is the sun a natural way to whiten your white laundry, but it can also disinfect your clothes too.
It does so by killing any bacteria that might not have been washed away during the washing cycle.
And the ultra violet rays of sunlight help to bleach and disinfect laundry which is particularly beneficial for white sheets and towels.

While another praised the idea, "That's amazing, I never knew any of that, thanks darling," she said.
The idea made some others feel warm and fuzzy and some what nostalgic.
"One of my favourite childhood memories is the smell of clothes dried on the line, especially on cold days," one person wrote.
