    Now ask yourself when was the last time you cleaned your dishwasher filter.

    I'm all about new experiences these days. Considering navel lint ignition as one. What could possibly go wrong?

    One last practical suggestion, then the thread can drift where it will: clean the ducting as well. My dryer vents thru the roof so there’s kind of a long duct. A while back I noticed the dryer wasn’t very efficient any more, even though the lint filter got cleaned every load. So I pulled the [12 ft +/-) ducting off and - holy shit - it was nearly clogged with lint.
    And I guess that I just don't know

    While you’re at it, clean the dishwasher filter

    My mom used a washer with a wringer. (OK, she didn't actually use it, but there was one in the basement, along with a treadle operated sewing machine, and a coal room with a chute [empty]. There was also a milk chute and a milkman who delivered milk--I guess they probably have an app for that now.)

    Dryer lint is serious. When I build or remodel houses I use 4" poly drain pipe and fittings with taped seams because of the smooth interior for long runs. Easy to clean compared to that ridged flex pipe that collects lint.
    Fires happen and the results can be pretty fucking awful.

    She ever get her tit caught in it?

    My grandparents' house had all that exact same shit except not a milk chute(wtf is a milk chute?) they had a metal box for milk on the front porch though. The coolest thing though was the fat-vibrating belt pseudo-exercise machine, which still worked. Well, as much as as it ever did. That thing was pretty awesome forlittle kids to fuck around with. Like this one:

    I was in an all day long annual HOA meeting today. Yeah, it is a good way to spend a Sat. BTW, but, what struck me was the common populus's consensus that major concerns about annual maintenance, besides snow removal and plowing, was dryer vent cleaning and chimney inspections.

    I gained respect for this little HOA.

    And I could never live in one, but, at least their priorities were in check, on that front.

    Gas dryers are terrifying. It’s like drying with a flame thrower that sits on the floor.

    Milk chute is where you put lit M80's on Halloween and the other 364 days of the year. Also a pass through where the milkman could leave the milk and the lady of the house (it was the 50's) could get it without going outside or even opening the door. My friend Kenny's brother slammed the milk chute door on Kenny's thumb and cut it off when we were kids.

    That fat vibrating belt doesn't seem to be working very well.

    Got a pen stick in there, made it past the lint trap and to the fan blades.





    What a great waste of an afternoon that was, and now I have a few ink stained shirts.

    the drugs made me realize it's not about the drugs

    My stoner cohorts would cut dime sized disks out of the lint trap in our barracks dryer to put in their hash pipes. Our 1st Sgt. would be pissed!

    My wife is fond of leaving hardware in her pockets. There's been a screw caught outside the drum of the dryer for years. Makes kind of a scraping sound as the drum goes around. It doesn't seem to be causing any harm but it annoys me.
