Safety tips for clothes Dryers

Used correctly, your clothes dryers is a great help. However it can also be a dangerous appliance if not used properly.

  • Always clean the lint filter before use. Even if it looks lint free, this is a good habit to get into.
  • Spin your washing as dry as possible to reduce time in the clothes dryer.
  • Never leave the dryer on when you leave the house. Built up lint outside the drum can ignite.
  • Don’t overload the dryer. Washing will dry better with a lighter load.
  • Install a smoke alarm in your home and test it regularly to ensure that it is working.

Only use the dryer when you really need to. Use the clothesline to save power and money.
