Why You Should Use A Toothbrush To Clean Your Dryer’s Lint Trap

0 9

Everyone knows to empty the lint trap every time you finish using the dryer to keep it safe and working its best. What many people don’t realize is that cleaning the mesh by hand leaves a lot of small particles that get stuck in the holes of the trap. As TikTok shows us, even when a lint trap is cleaned out by hand, using a toothbrush to get in between all of the mesh holes proves there is a ton of lint left behind that the toothbrush does an amazing job of removing. Therefore, store a lint-cleaning toothbrush in your laundry room to more effectively clean out your lint trap every time you use the dryer instead of using your hands.

Another important thing to know is that your lint trap needs a periodic deep clean to remove residue that has accumulated, which is made worse if you use fabric softener or dryer sheets. Start by using the toothbrush to clean the dry lint trap as if you had just finished using the dryer. Then prepare a soak of vinegar, mild dish soap, and warm water, and use these simple household cleaning essentials to clean your dirty lint trap, leaving it submerged for 30 minutes. Once it has soaked, use the toothbrush to give it a good scrub to remove residue and leave your lint trap sparkling clean, allowing it to fully dry before reinserting it into the machine.
