If drying overalls is chipping the inside of your dryer, put the overalls in a pillow case and safety pin it shut. This should cushion the metal fitting enough to protect the paint. As long as you take them out of the pillow case right away, they will be ready to wear. Hope this helps.

The metal fasteners on the straps of my husband's overalls are chipping the paint from the inside of the clothes dryer. Is there a solution other than hanging them to air dry?

I use safety pins to pin the straps with fasteners into the pockets.After the overalls are dry I hang on the back of chair to air dry the fabric that was stuffed in the pocket. No more noise and damage to the dryer.

Put the overalls in an old pillowcase & tie or pin it shut. That way the straps of the overalls won't fly around.
