Whether you have a beautiful, colorful washer-dryer set that's so gorgeous you could keep it right there in the open, or (like me) boring, standard white appliances that best belong in hiding in the basement, there are some things you have to be careful of when you use a clothes dryer. And this is exactly the right time of year to take care of those things.
It's getting to the point where, for anyone in the northern part of our country, drying clothes on the clothesline will be impractical soon (unless you like your jeans and towels frozen solid on the line.) So it's time now to make sure your dryer is in good working order.
When I needed repairs on my clothes dryer earlier this year, the repairman informed me that the dryer had been on fire--even though I'd never known about it. I've got a working smoke alarm and a working carbon-monoxide detector within 15 feet of that dryer, but neither of them ever alerted me.
So here's my tip for all of you: take a few minutes during this Fire Prevention Month to check your dryer. Get a vent brush at the hardware store for about $5 and clean the spot where you insert the lint screen. Then detach the dryer vent at both ends and clean it out. This will take you less than 15 minutes, but it goes a long way toward preserving your family's safety.
