Save Money With This Dryer TIP

Most people rely on their washer and dryer to clean clothes.  Most of those same people have no idea they could save money when it comes to their dryer!  Let me tell you how.

Take the lent trap out of your dryer and scrape or vacuum all the lent out of it.  Now take it over to the sink and run some water over the top of it.  If the water pools up on top of the screen, not only are you throwing money out the door (or dryer vent in this case) but your reducing the “life” of your dryer itself.dryer2

If water can’t get through the screen part of the lent trap then neither can air; which doesn’t happen to be optional when it comes to drying clothes.

Now that we’ve identified the problem, how do we fix it?   It’s a lot easier than you think.  All you need is some dish soap and either a scrub brush or tooth brush.soap-and-brush

Rub some dish soap on your hands then spread it around the screen.  Then use the brush to clean the screen.  After you’re done, rinse well with water.

You will now notice the water no longer pools on top of the screen.  It goes through the screen like it should.


Give your lent trap time to dry completely before sticking it back into the dryer for use.

I do this every 1-2 months.
