Removing Lint from the Dryer

Keep Your Dryer Lint Free

Get in the habit of cleaning the lint screen in your dryer between each load. Your dryer will run more efficiently when the lint screen is cleaned.

Use Lint To Remove Lint

The dryer in our house has the lint trap on the top. Sometimes these things are hard to clean. For a quick and easy way to clean the trap, I just pick up a piece of lint and use it to collect the rest. If there is lint on top of the dryer the little ball of lint will pick that up too!

Removing Lint from the Dryer

Not cleaning the lint trap in your dryer can result in a household fire. I've never experienced this myself, but I've heard of it before. Why chance a fire, when all it takes is less than 2 minutes to clean it out, each time your dryer is used? (09/15/2006)

Yes dryer fires are the second leading cause of household fires, grease fires being the first. (09/15/2006)

Excess lint can cause a fire to start, too, so this more than just a frugal tip!(09/15/2006)

Removing Lint from the Dryer

But, don't forget to occasionally pull out your dryer and pull the exhaust hose off of the wall to empty it of lint too! If your clothes are taking longer to dry or are carrying a "musky" odor, odds are you have a thick back up of lint back there too. This is where the real fire hazard potential is. And just to be safe, never run your dryer when you're asleep or away from home! (09/15/2006)

A quick vacuum will clean up the lint from the hoses and the top quickly also. (12/01/2008)
