News Headline: House Fire Caused by overheated clothes dryer.

Free Technical advice from Roland Rhoades & Dryer Repairmen

Straight from the Underwriters Laboratories (UL) website:

“Clean those lint traps: UL promotes clothes dryer safety.  Did you know that?:

Clothes dryers can be found in 80 percent, or 81.5 million homes throughout the United States. A full load of wet clothes placed in a dryer contains about one half gallon of water. As water is removed, lint is created from the clothes.

Clothes dryers are one of the most expensive appliances in your home to operate. The longer it runs, the more money it costs you.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) estimates that 15,500 fires associated with clothes dryers occur annually in the US. These fires account for an average of 10 deaths and 310 injuries and more than $84.4 million in property damage annually.

What causes some clothes dryer fires? Lack of maintenance is a contributing factor. People just aren't cleaning lint traps as often as they should nor are they checking and cleaning vent systems on a periodic basis. Reduced airflow resulting from lint buildup in the screen or other areas around the dryer can cause the dryer to perform poorly, operate at elevated temperatures and possibly overheat.”


   Fire departments, electric companies, and appliance dealers will tell you to use this brush in your dryer and refrigerator. Do an internet search for “house fire clothes dryer” and see for yourself how often a clothes dryer will burn a house down. Most people don’t think beyond cleaning the lint screen. A LOT gets past that trap, building up underneath or behind the dryer drum.

I'm sure most of our mothers have told us "Don't leave the house with the clothes dryer running." They know.

Our unique long-reaching #323 Clothes Dryer Vent Brush, gets the lint trapped in your dryer to make it work more efficiently and safely. It will also pay for itself in electricity savings very quickly because a clean dryer will dry your clothes much more quickly. A 5-minute demonstration on TV has sold over a half million of these. That demo shows all the lint that this flexible brush will find underneath the dryer drum. 

This brush will clean the dryer vent hose, down under and around the dryer drum after you take the lint screen out, and under and around the dryer. Clean regularly to keep your home safe, AND to Save Money on your electric bill by allowing your dryer to operate efficiently without all that lint gumming up the works.



#323  Reg $14.99
MY Price $11.99

Flexible wire allows reach to all areas of vent. Soft, resilient polyester bristles remove lint...but won't scratch surface. Vinyl tip on end of wire prevents scratching. Also works great to clean dirt and lint from under the dryer. Durable 5-1/2" plastic handle with hang-up hole. 27-1/2" overall length, 12-3/4" brush face.

I also have the regular Refrigerator Coil Brush, if you want a separate brush just for that. The only differences are a long wood handle so it's not as flexible, and the bristles on the tip are narrowed more. 
#19007  Reg $14.99     Closeout $8.

“If everyone in America used our Refrigerator Coil Brush, enough energy would be saved to run all the households in the State of Colorado for at least one year!” – The Fuller Institute



This 27”-long #323 Dryer Vent Brush is terrific for those old fashioned steam radiators, as the only practical way to clean the dust and pet hair out of all those crevices. Great for vacuum cleaner hoses too. Great item for antique stores to sell!  Also great for fishing out dust and lint and lost treasures underneath or between any tight spots, like under the washer or dryer or refrigerator, or between them and the wall or cupboards.

This brush is also a Refrigerator Coil Brush to clean your refrigerator coils to help it run more efficiently so it doesn't overheat. Save BIG MONEY with a clean smooth running refrigerator, cleaning out the oily dust from the coils that a vacuum won't get. Some refrigerators have coils on the back and some are underneath, or both. UNPLUG your refrigerator before sticking the brush underneath it or you may hit and bend your cooling fan. Having a vacuum handy to suck the dust off the brush helps. If you stick your vacuum nozzle under your refrigerator, you’ll see why you need this brush; that oily dust clings to the coils and just a vacuum is not enough.

The #323 Dryer Brush is a “one brush does everything” solution. The cost of running your refrigerator comprises about 10% of your total electric bill. The Refrigerator Coil Brush makes your refrigerator run more efficiently and use less power, and can pay for itself within one year! It also prevents the need for repairmen, who typically only need to clean the coils, like you can do for free. Clean coils can save energy and natural resources (and lessen oil imports).                      Regular $14.99 – ask for our specials.    

2 or 3 times a year, pull your refrigerator away from the wall and brush off the layer of dust on the coils at the back, underneath, and around the motor area, as well as on the wall. Also clean the grill area underneath. When you push your refrigerator back, leave 4-6 inches between it and the wall to allow excess heat to ventilate fast. Cleaning the coils improves air circulation, allowing the coils to cool much easier. When there’s less stress on the motor, your refrigerator operates much more efficiently and uses much less energy, and keeps the repairman away.

This is a very popular item for Realtors (or anyone) to give as a thank you or housewarming gift.

BUT THAT'S NOT ALL ....  Read this story and save money, and maybe your home.

  The heating unit went out on my dryer! The repairman told us that he wanted to show us something and he went over to the dryer and pulled out the lint filter. It was clean. (I always clean the lint from the filter after every load of clothes.)
  He told us he wanted to show us something. He took the filter over to the sink and ran hot water over it. The lint filter is made of a mesh material. I'm sure you know what your dryer's lint filter looks like. Well .... the hot water just sat on top of the mesh! It didn't go through it at all! He told us that dryer sheets and softeners cause a film over that mesh and that's what burns out the heating unit. [Fuller Brush does not make or sell dryer sheets.]
  You can't SEE the film, but it's there. It's what is in the dryer sheets to make your clothes soft and static free, and gives that nice fragrance. You know how they can feel waxy when you take them out of the box ... well this stuff builds up on your clothes and on your lint screen. This is also what causes dryer units to potentially burn your house down with it! He said the best way to keep your dryer working for a very long time (and to keep your electric bill lower) is to take that filter out and wash it with hot soapy water and brushing it at least every six months.
  He said that increases the life of the dryer at least twice as long! How about that!?!
  Note: I went to my dryer and tested my screen by running water on it. The water ran through a little bit but mostly collected all the water in the mesh screen. I washed it with warm soapy water and my trusty Fuller brush, and I had it done in 30 seconds. Then when I rinsed it ... the water ran right thru the screen! There wasn't any puddling at all! That repairman knew what he was talking about!

If you have the multi-tasking Degreaser aerosol spray, that will also do the job. Spray and use a soft but firm scrub brush like one on my brushes page.
