Removing Dryer Lint


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

A good way to clean the dryer lint off of machine's filter: grab your used dryer sheet to wipe off the webbing.

This way you won't have to worry about residue lint or hair stuck to the drying machine's lint screen.

    Great idea! ALSO THOUGH, you need to check that cleaned filter every so often by putting it under running water. If the water doesn't run through, you know you have a build-up of fabric softner which causes the clothes to take longer drying time...costing you more and wasting energy. You just wash it with a few drops of dish soap and it will be like new. emoticon emoticon
