You just attach the Lint Lizard to the hose of any household vacuum cleaner. It is quick, easy to use and there’s no mess because all the lint is sucked up directly into your vacuum.
The Lint Lizard is able to clean deep into your vent system, grabbing all the packed-in lint that has built up over time and is choking your dryer. By clearing up all the lint that gets past your lint screen, you can maximize your dryer’s efficiency to speed up drying time and save energy.
How does Lint Lizard work?
With the Lint Lizard in your hand you can save your precious money and make your dryer more energy efficient.
You may clean the lint trap but that is not enough. If lint is trapped in your dryer your dryer may need to work harder and this may exhaust your motor or may even start a dangerous vent fire.
The Lint Lizard is very flexible and can be easily attached to your vacuum hose. The built in fan nozzle is specially designed to clean the lint catcher and the dryer vent screens.
The Lint Lizard cleans your vent system perfectly by collecting all the lint that is stuck in your dryer. Once you have finished using the Lint Lizard your dryer vent will be cleaner than ever before.
Unlike other lint brushes that help to pull out lint but messes up the whole place the Lint Lizard sends the lint right into your back pack. Using the Lint Lizard is very easy, simple, and mess free.
With the Lint Lizard vacuuming in between and under machines is very easy. You can even use it outdoors to vacuum your outside vent.
Lint Lizard Review: de-lint your dryer, and while you’re at it… by toptvstuff.com
When I was offered a chance to try the Lint Lizard, I jumped at the chance. I am terrified of the idea that dryer lint can cause house fires. Every time I turn on my dryer, an orange light comes on to remind me to clean out the lint trap, but even after wiping the trap clean, I see so much lint that I just can’t reach. I have tried everything to get at that lint, including MacGuyvering strange setups like a stick covered with double-sided sticky tape and a metal hanger coated with a lint cloth, but most areas are just too hard to reach. Enter the Lint Lizard.
Simple and elegant
When the package arrived, it was just a clear plastic hose, two attachments and a one-sheet of instructions. It looked so simple, but not in an “I can make this myself at home” way — more of an “AHA! How ingenius” way. The attachments fitted easily together and fit right onto my vaccuum cleaner hose. I turned it on and watched the lint get sucked away from the lint trap through the transparent tube. Very satisfying. (That’s not a photo of me vaccuuming the dryer, by the way. My Lint Lizard attachment came in black, not green.)
Finally tackling a potential fire hazard
Next, I pointed the clear plastic tube inside the dryer lint trap canal (my term for it — does it have a name?) and aimed it the best I could at the walls and surfaces just beyond my reach. So far so good. When it came time to reach beyond what I could see — the invisible lurking lint just past my line of vision — I ran into a bit of a snag. The tubing was a little difficult to maneuver and point directly at those hidden areas. I would have liked to see it a little more pliable, easier to bend around corners and get at the invisible stuff. But overall, I was really satisfied to see the amount of lint get sucked out of the dryer lint trap.
On beyond the dryer
Once I started de-linting, it was hard to stop. I brought the vaccuum up to my sofa and figured I’d have a go at the lurking dust inside. The couch we have in our family room is a plush double recliner and it doesn’t have removable cushions. No matter how careful we are, crumbs, dirt and dust collect under the cushions and they’re impossible to get out using a regular vaccuum attachment. I aimed the lint lizard tube behind the cushions and heard the satisfying rush of tiny dirt particles being sucked up into the vaccuum bag. Another round won!
I’m on a hunt for other areas of the house to aim the Lint Lizard — between the car seats, behind the fridge, in the crevaces of the sliding door… For someone who hates to vaccuum, I’m surprised at how excited I am to purge my whole house of hidden dust, lint and dirt! Now that I have the Lint Lizard, I say “Bring it on!”
