> around the house for us told us that he wanted to show us something and
> he went over to the dryer and pulled out the lint filter. It was clean.
> (I always clean the lint from the filter after every load clothes.) He
> told us that he wanted to show us something; he took the filter over to
> the sink, ran hot water over it. The lint filter is made of a mesh
> material - I'm sure you know what your dryer's lint filter looks like.
> WELL...the hot water just sat on top of the mesh! It didn't go t hrough
> it at all! He told us that dryer sheets cause a film over that mesh
> that's what burns out the heating unit. You can't SEE the film , but
> it's there. It's what is in the dryer sheets to make your clothes soft
> and static free that nice fragrance too, you know how they can feel waxy
> when you take them out of the box, well this stuff builds up on your
> clothes and on your lint screen. This is also what causes dryer units to
> catch fire & potentially burn your house down with it!
> He said the best way to keep your dryer working for a very long time (&
> to keep your electric bill lower) is to take that filter out & wash it
> with hot soapy water & an old toothbrush (or other brush) at least every
> six months. He said that makes the life of the dryer at least twice as
> long!
