Every time you deposit a load of freshly washed clothing into the dryer, make it a habit to always empty the lint trap. This one simple act actually improves the efficiency of your dryer by .5 percent. While this may not seem like a lot, it does help you save a little money, and it also saves you time. A clean lint trap means it takes less time to get your clothes dry. Plus, it makes your appliance safer, because full lint traps can be a fire hazard. And don’t forget: Lint can be tossed right into the compost bin.
