AN Aussie wife revealed her unusual hack to dry clothes quickly in cooler weather - by hanging them over the oven.
Mum Melina Brown, from Victoria, took to Facebook to share her tip.1Mum Melina showed how she cleaned her man's pantsCredit: Facebook/Mums Who Clean
She wrote on the popular cleaning page Mums Who Clean: "Making sure my husband starts the week off right, with his favourite pair of jocks and socks!
"He might smell like Sunday roast but I wanted to utilise the heat that we’re lacking in Victoria."
Alongside her comment Melina posted a snap of her man's undies and socks hanging off the oven hook.
We don't doubt it worked (and her husband's clothes smelt good) but other people were concerned.

One woman wrote, referring to the gas hob: "That exposed gas flame is making me nervous though."
Another added: "Be aware of fire though."
But other folk just thought she was being resourceful, teasing she had "won the internet".
One said: "Haha this reminds me of my mum. To this day she still gets teased about the ‘desert’ she made. She use to put dads undies and socks in the oven to dry on low and one time it burned holes in them."
And another added: "I even used the oven..... open door of course and sorted a small frame around it. Necessity the mother of invention. Nothing like dry clothes."
Meanwhile, others said you could use the microwave too - although we don't suggest putting clothes in there.Most read in FabulousJAW-DROPPING3D face of 'jawless' Stone Age man whose head was found on a SPIKE revealedZAP!US Marines' new weapon can electrocute enemies from 300 feet awayINSTASHAMAwful Photoshop fails prove how fake Insta is - including woman with endless legsExclusiveMADE UPI started saving for a nose job at 10 & get up at 4.30am to do my makeupWEIGH TO GO!I went from a size 20 to running an ultramarathon — I still can't believe itICE SAYBloke shows simple hack to get extra ice cream from the machine at Ikea

Richmond Mayor Uses Emergency Powers To Immediately Remove Confederate Statues
“Today, I have the ability to do this through my emergency powers,” Stoney told the city council during a meeting after the council suggested calling a vote for Thursday. “I think we need to act today.” (RELATED: Biden Supports Removing Confederate Statues, Wants To Keep Washington And Jefferson)
Crews were seen arriving at several statues and taking down a monument of General Stonewall Jackson along Richmond’s Monument Drive shortly after the meeting, according to the Associated Press.

A new law came into effect the same day Stoney ordered the removal of the statues. The law grants control of the statues to the Richmond government and puts in place a process for removing the statues that would take at least 2 months.
Many councilors supported Stoney’s decision, but some said that they needed to follow the proper legal procedure in order to remove them, according to the report. Interim city attorney Haskell Brown said that claiming that Stoney has the authority to remove the statues immediately without following the state process contradicts the legal advice Brown had given in the past.
Stoney said that he decided to remove the statues immediately because people could be hurt trying to topple them, and “we have an urgent need to protect the public.” One person has been seriously injured trying to pull down a statue in Portsmouth, Virginia, and Stoney along with several city council members expressed concern that the statues had become a public safety hazard.
Protesters have vandalized and pulled down several statues in Richmond during ongoing demonstrations against the death of George Floyd, a Black man who died in Minneapolis Police custody May 25. Removing Confederate symbols from public has been a rallying point for activists, and they have since moved on to tearing down statues of various other historical figures.
In Richmond, statues of Gen. Williams Carter Wickham, Christopher Columbus, and Jefferson Davis were torn down, and other famous statues – including one of famed Confederate General Robert E. Lee – have been vandalized. Governor Ralph Northam had ordered the removal of Robert E. Lee’s statue, but it was delayed because of lawsuits from those who wanted the statue to stay.
