Lose the lint

October 2, 2009

IT’S ECO-FRIENDLY FRIDAY!

Don’t forget to clean the lint screen in your dryer.  All that lint that collects in there prevents the air from flowing efficiently inside your dryer.  And that makes the dryer have to work harder to dry your clothes.  Just by cleaning out that screen, you could reduce your energy use up to 30%.  But even more importantly, you could also be preventing a fire from starting in your dryer.

    Check!

    Cross your fingers…. I’m going to TRY to get over to the restaurant supply store to get your coffee extract and some more vanilla bean paste! :)

    Happy Friday, Michelle!

    I’ve heard that you should really take the lint screen out and wash it with soap and water because it develops a film on it that blocks the screen holes, thus creating a lot of heat and possibly a fire. Also those brushes made to clean out the lint from the depths of the dryer work really well too! You’d be surprised how much comes out.
