When that laundry pile slowly builds, it can look like an approaching monster in the corner as you realise – you can’t put that ironing off any longer.

According to a study by Tombola, it’s the UK’s second most hated chore, beaten only by cleaning the oven. But it seems that there is a little known hack that could actually make your life a lot easier.

The time you take to do your laundry could actually be halved and the trick wouldn’t cost you the earth either – you could do it for under 65p. Tombola says that by removing the ironing board cover and spreading tin foil over the board, you can essentially create a second iron.

Tuck the foil underneath and replace the cover, the foil should now reflect the heat onto the underside of the garments. It’s not the only hack for the iron blowing people’s minds.

On popular Facebook group, cleaning tips and tricks, users rave about a trick for getting your iron looking like new again. One user claims that by using paracetamol, your iron could be left sparkling.

The contributor wrote: “Paracetamol on your iron is amazing. Heat up your iron and using tweezers rub a paracetamol over the bottom it removes all black marks and irons like new again. Mind blown!”

The UK is in an energy crisis following the price of gas which has rocketed in recent weeks.

Many energy suppliers are out of business which has prompted warnings of food shortages in UK supermarkets.

Householders are being warned that anyone coming off cheap, fixed energy deals could be in for a huge price hike, even on the cheapest tariffs. To avoid a potential price hike in energy bills customers can:

  • Stick with the price cap for six months as prices could potentially fall if the energy market stabilises.
  • Switch to the cheapest one or two-year fixed deal but you’ll need to act fast – see here for switching.
