If you have washed you clothes and now need to dry them real quick, so just toss a dry towel in the washing machine. The dry towel will absorb the excess moisture thus making your clothes dry faster.
You might have used lots of detergents, liquids and god knows what else just to get rid of grease stains. Tell you the trick. Just rub the part which has grease stains with chalk ad just do a normal wash. Comment your results:)
