I know I know – I try not to flaunt my AMAAAAAYYYYYYYYYZing housekeeping skills too often, but today I came across a tip that was just TOO good not to share it with you. REady? Have your pen and paper handy to jot this down?
Ok. Next time you notice that its taking your dryer like, an hour to get 13 socks and 3 towels dry, try CLEANING OUT YOUR LINT TRAP! VOILA!!!! Instantly better energy efficiency! Now, you may be like me and decide to knit a few sweaters out of the lint that you remove from your lint trap. I have also heard of people donating their beach ball sized rolls of dryer lint to the fire stations for practice setting fires, or sending boxes of dryer lint to refugees in Siberia who use it for insulation – but whatever you choose to do with it, enjoy your newly found free time from not having to run the dryer three times per load!
don’t say you never learned anything from terra talking. The proof is RIGHT THERE!!!!
I could not stop laughing today at the ginormous amount of lint that had piled up in our lint trap. Its just one of those things that is not high on my priority list I guess…
Anyways – in other funny news – you’ve all seen the email forwards of random lists of questions – instead of trying to find everyone’s email address, I am posting my answers here and love to see you all’s answers. Email them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Let’s have a little fun. I would like this back please!!! Here is what you are supposed to do, hit forward, delete my answers and type in your answers. Then send this to a bunch of people that you know and send it back to me so I can see your answers. The theory is that you will learn a lot of little unknown facts about those you know. Remember to send it back please.
