Forget old fashioned lint brushes that typically don't clean out your entire dryer. A new product promises to rid your dryer of dangerous lint. A clear hose connects to your vacuum, and claims to clean out lint both inside and outside your home, prolonging the life of your dryer. We put it to the test.
The infomercial says that your dryer runs forever, and your clothes still come out wet but now you can speed up your dryer by 15 minutes. Introducing the As Seen On TV Lint Lizard, it's guarantees to work like a magic wand cleaning deep into any dryer. The flexible lizard attachs to any vacuum hose. After cleaning with the Lint Lizard, it promises that your dryer will work less and run more efficiently.
Look how much lint we got out of this dyer, all this lint that escapes past your lint screen. Everybody knows that a clogged dryer works harder that lint can burn out your motor. "It hurts the performance of the dryer, and it can cause house fires as well if it gets too clogged up," says Alexa Denagall. We pulled in our expert Alexa, because she washes several loads of laundry at her home each day. "I notice I get the most lint from washing towels, and it kinda just clogs up around the edge of the lint trap," says Denagall.
She was hoping this 40 inch lizard would work! So, off she went suctioning all her packed up lint. "It actually worked really good, I was impressed that it has a nice little edge that your able to get inside of the opening. It sucked out a lot, in fact there's a lot of little fuzzies still in here," says Denagall.
With the first order of business taken care of, Alexa wanted to test it on her outside vent. "It's going in pretty far and it seems to suck up a lot of the extra lint," says Denagall.
In just minutes Alexa was through using the lint lizard. "Even this old power cord that has dust caked on it, it got it up with ease," says Denagall.
While she doesn't like holding real lizards, how did she feel about his one? "It seems to work really well, outside as well as inside," says Denagall.
In your opinion is this a deal or a dud? "A deal," says Denagall.
