I considered the vacuum bag for dryer lint, but didn't think air could escape the bag efficiently.
Figured it would just blow the bag off or escape through where it was secured onto vent pipe w/ rubber band. How does the air get out? Also, most bags have a hole in the side where they attach to vacuum cleaner. Did you duct tape over that, or is there another bag type I don't know about? Thanks.
I got Hoover Type A bags, three for 97 cents. The attachment hole is at the end, the end I cut open to slip over the vent hose. How you would handle that would depend on the bag you had, of course. My dryer has a moisture sensor that cuts it off when the clothes reach a certain dryness, and it runs about as long as its initial time estimate which itself is unchanged from before I installed the bag, so the bag isn't restricting air flow significantly, or even noticeably. Indeed, the hand test says air escapes through its paper body very easily though it catches the lint quite well, which is what vacuum bags are designed to do when used in vacuums. It has not blown off the hose.
Thanks for your question. Please feel free to ask any others you may have.

How do you clean a Turkish Carpet?I have a Turkish Floor Rug which the Vaccume doesn't seem to remove the lint from. And I don't think it would survive a wash. Any ideas how to keep it clean?
