This simple step by step tutorial of how to Create a Wall Mounted Laundry Room Lint Bin is an easy way to encourage family members to remove dryer lint and reduce a home fire hazard.
Household chores and life in general can be overwhelming as life becomes fast paced and small details like remembering to remove the lint from the dryer sometimes get lost in the shuffle.
According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, more than 15,000 fires are sparked every year by clothes dryers. Lint and other debris can build up in your dryer vent, reducing air flow to the dryer, backing up dryer exhaust gases, creating a fire hazard. Most of the time the lint burns itself out inside the machine leaving a burning smell and damaging the appliance. Either way, there is such a simple way to reduce the risk…. each and every time, clean out your dryer lint compartment.
By hanging the laundry room lint bin at chest level on the wall, it becomes a constant visual reminder. This tutorial chose to spray paint the lint bin black but I personally would chose the color red which reminds us of of the danger.
