Laundry? There's a hack for that! Ryan Seacrest shared on-air the only cycle you should ever use on your washing machine is quick wash.

Patrick Richardson, who hosts “The Laundry Guy” on HGTV, shared you don't need to mess with delicate, permanent press, normal, bulky or heavy duty.

Sometimes called “Express” or “30 minute wash," quick wash thoroughly cleans your clothes and longer cycles cause more wear and tear on the clothes and on the machine.

Plus, you’re using a lot of unnecessary water and energy.
