These laundry hacks can save you time and headaches. (KTRK)

If doing laundry is becoming a load of work, GQ Magazine has five hacks that could help make things easier.

Tip 1: The ice cube trick

All you need is an ice cube and dryer sheet. Put them in the dryer, and you'll steam and freshen your clothes in just 10 minutes.

Tip 2: The towel trick

When you're pressed for time, throw a dry towel in the dryer with your load of wet laundry for about 15 to 20 minutes. It dries clothes faster.

Tip 3: The lace trick

Everyone hates the sound of noisy shoes in the dryer, right?

Simply take the laces and close them in the door latch. That takes away all the noise!

Tip 4: The aluminum foil trick

For fluffy towels, toss a balled-up sheet of tin foil in the dryer. It also reduces the static electricity and can be re-used for a month!
Tip 5: The nail file trick

Get dirt that gets caught in suede out by using a nail file.
