We all know we should clean the lint trap in our clothes dryer, but honestly how often do people do that? And we're not talking about plucking the lint out with your fingers, either.
But there's a safety reason you should follow the advice on the video below. One out of every 22 house fires involve a washer or, 92 percent of the time, a dryer. In a third of those cases, a dirty dryer was the culprit, according to the National Fire Protection Association.
So what's the magic trick? It's not JUST washing the lint trap out in the sink. If you use a fabric softener, the residue stays behind, gumming up the trap. To prevent fires, you need to brush the lint trap until the water can flow through it freely. Then you know it's clean!
