Lint in your dryer

Updated on December 8, 2007

I have a few firemen friends and they have advised me...many years ago now..that keeping your dryer lint basket cleaned out, is very important, after each load you dry. If it does build up and hard to remove...just wet your finger tips and it will hook right on to them. Even some doors need to be cleaned often. It is a fire hazard for all of us.

Another thing to watch is the vent to the outside...keep it clean and DO NOT block it with needs to vent..that's what the vent is for.

I am sure you all know this...just another friendly reminder from G-Ma :O)

      Great tips G-Ma! I have also recently found out that if you use dryer sheets, they will leave a build-up on your dryer lint filter that will eventually burn up your dryer. To test it, just put your lint filter under running water. If the water flows through freely, you are fine. If it gathers on the filter and doesn't drain through, clean the filter with some hot soapy water until it runs through freely. This will add to the life of your dryer :)
