If you want to save money on your utility bills (and who doesn't), here's a suggestion you probably haven't considered: cleaning the vent to your clothes dryer. It’s one of those home-maintenance chores that’s easy to forget about until your laundry starts coming out of the dryer damp.
We're here to tell you Amazon has a solution for just $20: the Holikme Dryer Vent Lint Brush. Right now, it’s on sale for $23 (was $29), but you’ll save an extra $3 if you apply the on-page coupon.
If your dryer isn’t drying your clothes quite like it used to, it might not be time to go appliance shopping just yet. Over time, lint and debris build up in your dryer's vent system, restricting air flow. That will, of course, prolong drying time, which can be annoying and expensive. But it can also be downright dangerous: A clogged vent increases the risk of sparking a fire. The Holikme Dryer Vent Lint Brush can help with both problems.
How it works
Unlike the Sealegend Dryer Vent Cleaner which cleans the inside of your appliance, the Holikme Dryer Vent Lint Brush cleans out the tubing that connects the dryer vent to the outside. To put it to work, you attach the brush (with the included adapter) to a power drill and let 'er rip. While it’s spinning, the brush grabs the lint that’s built up on the walls of the tube. This kit comes with 30 feet of flexible nylon rod extensions to maximize the brush’s reach.
When those walls are cleared out, there’s room for air to move in there and dry your clothes — which means you’ll be saving energy and money.
Nearly 16,000 rave reviewers on Amazon are already cleaning up and socking away extra cash.
“It was taking two cycles for our clothes to dry, and I could not figure out why,” reported a rave reviewer. “Saw this on TikTok and decided to give it a try. Definitely works. Glad I found this because this was definitely a fire hazard. We will probably save on our electric bill now!!”
“Amazed at the amount of stuff that came out of the vent,” wrote a shocked shopper. “The dryer works a lot better now. I definitely recommend getting this.”
“At the vent opening underneath my rain gutter there was a huge lint ball as hard as a hardball,” shared one satisfied shopper. “The drill blew it right out. After hooking the vent to the dryer and turning it on it was unbelievable how much blew out. The house is less than two years old! What a fire hazard for those vented up the wall into the attic. I intend to use this product twice a year for safety. Truly an excellent investment.”
Another blown away shopper wrote: “It's amazing how much gunk can build up over the years! This is the first time in 9 years that we have ever cleaned our vent. Don't know if the previous owners of the house ever did, either. It was pretty disgusting. We were able to do the vent and the dryer with this brush. When we finished we could hear the wind blowing past the vent outside — never heard that before!”
Did Kevin Durant’s legacy really take a hit now that the Golden State Warriors have won another title after he left?A lot of people seem to think so. They argue that the Warriors have proven they can win without him and seemingly are of the mindset they didn’t need him at all in the first place.Sadly, they can not be more wrong. Please allow me to address this absurd notion.OPPONENT. Yes, it’s all about the competition. The argument is so simple that I am confused how these people could miss it.
