Telling NeedToKnow.online, Heidi said: "I was washing and noticed that a fleece jumper came out of the washing machine almost dry.

"Drying cotton over airers in this cold can take up to 48 hrs and it makes the house damp.

"Drying them in the tumble takes about 40 mins, my dryer is 2500W, and I worked out through an energy calculator that for 40 minutes, it would cost me 57p.

"I have three double beds in the house so that is £1.71 if you wash bedding weekly or £88 a year."

Heidi claims that the hack helps to avoid having wet bedding hanging around the house and taking up all her drying space.

She added: "This fabric lasts so they will be good for years, so they are an investment for every winter for me.

"I will store them away in spring with some Lenor sheets in a vacuum bag."

Heidi then shows off her new bedding and describes it as "tasteful".

She adds: "I never really fancied it [fleece bedding] before and it's only when I washed the fleece and I thought, you know what, a fleecy bedding set would dry really quick.

"It's super soft, it's very warm as well, and the best thing is, if you put it on an extra spin after you've washed it, it comes out practically dry."

Viewers rushed to the comments section to share their thoughts. 

One wrote: "That's me off to Dunelm.”

Someone else said: "I bought a teddy bear duvet set and also the teddy sheet. Best thing I've bought in years. So cosy and super quick too dry."

While another added: "Yes the fleece stuff dries so quickly, I put a fleece blanket on top of my bed sheet to lie on, it was so warm."
