I left a facial tissue in the wash. What a mess! How do I get this off the "drip drys"?
I Have used those lint rollers that are like inside out masking tape. The brand name ones tend to stick to the lint better and make it less work.
I hate it when that happens! No matter how careful I am I seem to do that at least once a year!
If the clothing item is being drip dried only because of a shrinkage issue I would imagine you could tumble it in the dryer with no heat and that would remove much of the lint.
If it is is a fragile item that can't be tumbled then I think you'd need to rewash it and rinse (and rinse) in fresh water until all the lint was removed.
I would let the drip dry things dry then toss them in the dryer on fluff--a cold setting or the last few minutes on most dryer settings is a cool down time and might be enough to fluff the tissue off.
I use a piece of nylon netting to remove lint from
clothing in the dryer. 1/2 yard should be more than enough & your cost should be 50 cents or less.
