As many of you know I have been busy this past while fall cleaning or deep cleaning our house. Also you may or may not know that we are filling out paperwork and laying the ground work so we can foster to adopt. In doing this I have realized that many things in our house could be better arranged so that they are working better for us.
As well as many of you know I am addicted to Pinterest. I have spent many an hour pursuing the sites and finding a whole pile of useful information. My hubby hubby thinks it is a bit of a pain and I will admit that other than some great recipes that I have found on there many of the things that I do doesn't overly benefit him. For example we made our daughter a desk, (we made), I have found articles on sewing that I have made, things like that.
So when I asked him to stack our front load washer and dryer he was not thrilled with the idea, but not against it either. Now I should tell you that our porch is small. Our washer and dryer were on pedestals (which I loved) So to do this we had to move both pieces outside, move the pedestals and then stack them. Not a fun task at all.
Once I got them outside and was cleaning the porch I remembered something that I had pinned on Pinterest a bit ago. Cleaning the lint out of my dryer. If you have not seen this, you NEED to go and check it out.
I told my hubby about it and he said well lets check it out since they were outside anyway. At this point I am not kicking myself that I forgot to take a picture. Once they took the bottom off of the dryer let's just say hubbies opinion of my time on Pinterest has changed. I did remember to gather the lint up and take a picture.
This stuff was where the heater and the motor are. VERY SCARY!! You can see that some of it had already turned brown/black from laying up against the motor.
It freaks me out to be honest.
I am so thankful that I found this site. Even more thankful that we managed to clean up our dryer totally BEFORE we had a fire.
Please, please, please take the time to check out your dryer. The link is for both types of dryers. I know that this will be a regular even to clean it out.
I am linking up today with Theresa and with Jenni.
