Her fans quickly shared their thoughts, with many confessing that it's something they've been doing for years, and is a super-handy hack.

One said, 'Yes, I do that, and also hang then on the line inside out to prevent marks from the line,' as another agreed, 'I do - definitely helps to keep garments clean'.

And a third commented, 'Yes all my clothes are hung inside out in the wardrobe. Mainly because all my clothes are washed inside out and also ironed inside out.'

Others hadn't employed the trick themselves before, but appeared convinced after Kirstie shared the information. One follower wrote, 'Nope. But it’s actually a good idea when I think about it'.
