Does Putting Ice Cubes in the Dryer Work?

I Put Ice Cubes in My Dryer Instead of Ironing My Clothes, and the Result Blew My Mind

Although I own an iron and ironing board, they've pretty much been collecting dust in my closet over the years, and I've never been happier. Through a really "cool" hack (pun intended, and you'll understand it in just a moment) I've learned to do with my dryer, I haven't had to iron in years. And nope, I'm really not kidding!

By simply placing two to three ice cubes in your dryer and setting it on high heat for just a few minutes, the wrinkles in your clothes smooth out. By doing this, your dryer is essentially steaming your clothes, because the ice cubes melt into water, and it becomes hot enough to create steam. The steam mixed with the hot temperature takes the place of what an iron does. Just try not to overload your dryer, because this hack works best when you're working with just a few articles of clothing.

This fantastic hack is perfect if you are in a rush, busy, or if, like me, you hate ironing with a passion. When you have endless loads of laundry to do with kids, this can seriously save your sanity. And unlike other "hacks" that don't live up to the hype, this tested method actually works.
