My dryer lint filter is in the top of my dryer. Because it is important to clean the lint filter with each load that is dried, I do. But tiny pieces of lint--lint dust-- end up all over the top of my dryer.
For years I cleaned up up with a wet paper towel.
Let me tell you, getting wet lint up and off your dryer is no easy feat. But leaving it dry is worse--the lint scatters everywhere and ends up mostly in the air and on the floor.
Then one day I got a brilliant idea.
I bought a micro-fiber duster at the Dollar Tree.
Voila. A mini dust mop that captures the lint in one fell swoop.
I keep it hanging beside my dryer. All it needs for maintenance is a good shake outside--like you'd do a dust mop--once in a while. And it can be laundered.
No more using those expensive paper towels and no more chasing lint.
