INFO ABOUT CLOTHES DRYERS
The heating unit went out on my dryer! The gentleman that fixes
things 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 of clothes.)
He took the filter over to the sink and ran hot
water over it. The lint filter is made of amesh
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 through 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. You know how they can feel
waxy when you take them out of the box ... well this stuff
builds up on your clothesand on your lint screen.
This is also what causes dryer units to potentially burn
house down with it! He said the best way to keep your dryer
working for a very long time (and to keep your
electric bill lower) is to take that filter out and wash it
with hot soapy water and an old toothbrush
at least every six months.
He said that increases the life of the dryer at least twice as
long! How about that!?
Learn something new
everyday! I certainly didn't know dryer sheets would do
that. So, I thought I'd share!
Note:I went to
my dryer and tested my screen by running water on it. The water
ran through a little bit but mostly
collected all the water in the mesh screen. I washed it
with warm soapy water and a nylon brush and I had it done
in 30 seconds. Then when
I rinsed it ... the water ran right thru the screen! There wasn't
any puddling at all! That repairman knew what he was talking
