If you have ever done your laundry before you know what lint is. It is normal for the clothes that you wash to retain some lint during the drying cycle, but it is the job of your dryer to keep most of this lint from attaching to your clothes. Lint mostly comes from particles that have accumulated in the dryer that then find their way onto your clothes. Lint is most apparent on clothing of dark colors. If you want to keep lint from appearing on your clothes, there are a few things that you can do during your next drying cycle:
Here are the ways that your dryer can keep lint off of your clothes:
Your dryer is specifically designed to keep the lint from attaching to your clothes and from actually accumulating in the lint filter. The lint filter will fill with lint over time. This means that you need to empty the filter often to make sure that there is room for more lint to accumulate. If lint can’t make its way into the filter, it will attach to your clothes. When you clean the filter on your dryer, you not only need to remove all the built up lint, but you also need to wipe the entire surface of the filter. This will ensure that there is not lint present that will find a way onto your clothes.
It is also a good idea to always check your laundry before you put it into the washer or dryer. If you notice particles of tissue or paper, you should remove it from your laundry before you put it into the dryer. It is these particles that will add up and attach to your clothing items.
There are certain types of materials that are more prone to collecting lint than others. With these clothing items, you need to dry them separately and also turn them inside out. This will help to reduce the amount of clothing that they spread lint on and also minimize the amount of lint that they accumulate.
A dryer sheet is also a great way to make sure that lint does not attach to your clothing. If you have a large load in the dryer, it is best to use a few dryer sheets. These sheets wil prevent static build up and make lint less likely to adhere to your clothing during the drying cycle.
