Here are four tips to keep your clothes dryer working efficiently:
1. Remove and clean the dryer lint screen after each load of laundry.
2. Once every month insert the crevice tool from a vacuum cleaner down into the lint-trap slot to remove lint that’s accumulated inside.
3. Clean the inside of the dryer’s exhaust duct at least twice per year to prevent a buildup of lint.
4. Toss a dry towel in with the wet clothes when using the dryer. The towel will absorb excess moisture and the clothes will dry faster.
