Wrinkles clothes terribly. Solutions.

Check your settings on your dryer. See if it's on a longer duration of time to dry. Dryers have different wording depending upon the make and model. If you're trying to dry smaller loads the heat settings s
does not have to be set for very long. Heavier, loads with thicker clothing will need to dry a little longer. When you take the clothes out of the washing machine, do you shake the clothes before putting them in the dryer? And do you use dryer sheets? Believe it or not, they're not only used to help make your clothe's smell fresh but they also help elevate static and a few wrinkles.

I have a Semi Automatic Whirlpool Sparkle washing machine my question is can i put water in the dryer just to remove soap from the clothes

Whether your dryer is electric or gas, DON'T PUT WATER IN THE DRYER!!! If you need to get more soap out of the laundry, run it through another cycle without soap.

Where do you put the fabric softener

In the dryer. Use dryer sheets - they're much more convenient and more direct. Clothing doesn't get stiff in the washing machine, it gets stiff in the dryer - treat it in the dryer, where it happens.

Better still, hang your clothing outdoors on a clothesline if you can - that's as good as it gets, and laundry CANNOT smell better than it does fresh off the clothesline.
