Personally, I despise ironing. I find it so tedious and time consuming, and I wish that my clothes always just came out of the dryer wrinkle-free. Well, according to this new viral hack, that wish can be reality! By tossing a few ice cubes in your dryer, the heat will turn them to steam, leading to smooth fabrics without wrinkles (or the need for ironing).
