When materials rub together (particularly cotton, linen and wool) loose bits of fabric fiber – called lint – can build up on your clothes. This can become a real issue when drying your clothes, but you can tackle any lint problems with Bounce® Dryer Sheets. Here’s how to get rid of lint:
How to Prevent Lint on Clothes
Lint on dark clothes is the worst. To prevent any lint that’s lurking in your dryer from getting on your clothes, you need to remember to clean the lint trap and filter. You can do this by removing the lint filter and wiping the mesh clean. Then vacuum the filter screen and filter trap to remove any stubborn lint bits that have been left behind.
How to Remove Lint From Dry Clothes
The best way to remove lint from dry clothes includes using a lint roller or picking it off the fabric with sticky tape that’s been wrapped around your hand.
There’s another option that is so simple and obvious that it almost borders on genius. Wipe a dryer sheet over the fabric to get rid of lint in just one move!
How to Remove Lint from Clothes in the Dryer
Bounce® Dryer Sheets also act as a lint repellent. Just toss a sheet into the dryer to remove lint while your clothes dry.
Dryer sheets help reduce the build-up of static electricity in fabrics. This means the fabrics won’t cling to each other, and your clothes are also less likely to attract lint. When you use Bounce® Dryer Sheets, your next batch of laundry will not only come out of the dryer lint-free with reduced static cling, but will also be less wrinkled, soft as a purring kitten and smell fresh.
Lint is something nobody likes, but for some cosmic reason everybody gets it – it’s like the fabric version of a sunburn. While most of the lint will be grabbed by your dryer’s lint screen, some will always remain behind on your clothes. Fortunately for you, when following these steps that pesky lint problem will be a thing of the past!
