Two Minutes to a New Dryer

Does anyone else appreciate the irony of ME giving domestic/housekeeping tips? Yeah, I know, it’s pretty funny.

But if you notice your dryer is taking FOR-EV-AH to dry a load, you might want to check the lint trap: obviously you clean out the lint after every run, but–after that–if you put a little water on the lint trap, does the water puddle rather than run straight through? If so, give it a quick wash (I literally spent two seconds and a couple of pumps of foaming hand soap to give it a quick wash). {You see, the filter gets a sort of cellulose-like build-up on it over time that prevents air from flowing through it freely, and therefore, your dryer isn’t able to dry effectively.}

Then marvel at the speediness of your drying.

You can do more and more laundry…

Then you’ll have more and more laundry to FOLD…

Um… You’re welcome?

  1. Seriously!? Is this not obvious? I learned at a very early age that you clean out the lint trap after every use of the dryer (and I’m a guy). Did you just figure this out and think it was cool and new?


    • Oh dear, perhaps I was not clear: I meant to convey that you might want to WASH the lint trap occasionally (as well as removing the lint after every wash). Hope that was clear to everyone else. 🙂


  2. You clearly said: obviously you clean out the lint after every run. Now I will have to try cleaning the lint trap with soap and water! Cool! That is new to me! Thanks for the tip!


  3. I feel kind of silly, because I do empty out the lint trap every time, but I never thought to wash it! I’m going to do it tomorrow:).


  4. Hey Gina. Thanks for the tip! I never thought to actually wash the lint trap. I don’t have any of the foaming hand soap you mentioned but I have the regular kind that should work. 🙂
