OK, I know there's going to be some wonderfully nurturing mom out
there who can answer this for me, as it's driving me slightly loony.
Have a pair of black slacks, 100%, every time I wash them they come
out with lint - all over, difficult to remove. How do I get it off
without wasting a lot of time? And how do I prevent this? Someone
has suggested not drying them in the dryer, just hanging them instead.
Suggestions, please. I know this seems silly, but it's very
There are several way to do this.
In my opinion, the best thing is to just get a roll of duct tape.
Wrap a strand of tape around one of your hands, and then dab off the
lint. Very easy to do.
There are better ways, but the duct tape can be used for other
purposes as well.
I'd forget about the dryer if I were you. That's never worked for
me. It's more likely that you'll wreck the pants trying to de-lint
You do need to be careful about the washing machine also. It might
be better not to use it. A plastic bucket and a cap full of Woolite
would probably be better. I'd go this way. Hang the pants out to
dry and then dab the lint off. A cool iron, and off you go. Not
difficult. Even I can do it. ;)
Washing machines seem to be a popular topic these days.
If I were you, I would not be washing those slacks in a "public
washing machine". My guess is that this -- not the socks -- is
You have any idea what people put in public washing machines?
I've seen dirty cloth diapers being dumped in them, too.
During the time I had to use a laundromat, I took spray cleaner and
cleaned out each washer before using it. My cleaning rag was always
pretty gross afterwards :-/
