Dryer Lint Kit is a “No Brainer”

Dear FlyLady,

When you first told us about the Dryer Lint Kit, I ordered it because it seemed like a no-brainer. I have been pretty good about cleaning my vents when you remind us, but this time-I put it off. When we tiled our floor, 7 years ago now-we tiled to the edge of the door and stopped. I still have bare concrete floor under my washer and dryer. Well, DH mentioned a few months ago that we were going to pull everything out and tile it soon, so I put it off. After all, the perfect time to do it was when I already have the dryer pulled out.

Well, that p*fect time never came. After 7 years, I am not surprised that it still has not been completed. The other morning, I ran the dryer a few minutes before work because I ditched my evening routine and had to knock some wrinkles out. Beating myself up, I opened the dryer door only to have the smoke alarm go off in the hallway. Wow! What an eye opener! (for DH especially, who was still sound asleep!)I ran out the door to work. That night, I came home, finished my evening routine and went to my laundry closet to pull down my dryer cleaner kit. Set the timer for 15 minutes, pulled it out, fished out a softball size total of lint, put everything back and still had time on my timer. What started out a day in total CHAOS, ended on a high note as I swept around the dryer and everything.

From now on, I will follow the gentle reminders and no longer put off that task, thinking it will just be for a week or two. Thanks for such a wonderful tool!
