Taking care of hair appliances is important considering how much we pay for things some use daily. When the occasion arises and I need mine, nothing is more frustrating than if it is not working properly.

The lint build up in a blow dryer can cause it to heat up. The screen in mine was very hard to reach because of the plastic bars on top. I could clean the lint catcher on top, but not the under one.

I tried a small dental brush that is used to clean between braces and bridgework, and it worked great! You can get these at the dollar store in the toothpaste section. They have a plastic handle with a small wire brush on the end. No more clogged hair dryer.

I've found that my hair dryer will last years if I make sure to clean the lint, dust, and hair from the vented area. If the vent does not come apart you can clean or brush it with a stiff brush. Of course do not use water, unless it's unplugged and make sure it drys completely. ;-)

Use a clean soft paint brush to remove hair & fuzz collected on the back area of an electric hair dryer. Works great.

To clean my dryer filter after every use, I use a 2 1/2 inch cheap paint brush (dollar store brushes are perfect) to sweep across it, it gets most of the lint and it took only seconds since I brush it right into a garbage pail. I also use it to brush off the top of my dryer when it needs it.
