How to Clean your Hair Dryer

Does your hair dryer look like this?
Seriously gross right? This is one thing that I’m SO bad about cleaning. I am always in a hurry when I’m getting ready (that’s just how life is with a 2 year old) so when I’m blow drying my hair, cleaning the blow dryer is not on my mind. That is why it looks so gross!
Here’s my tip: Dryer lint.
Dyer lint is great for a task like this one because lint sticks to lint. Here’s what to do:
1. Acquire some lint from the dryer.
2. Run the lint along the vents of the hair dryer. It will pull the hair and lint right up.
3. For tough to reach spots use a toothpick, with the lint wrapped around it.
4. Once you have pulled all the lint out wipe the vents clean with a damp cloth.
Voila! Nice and clean!
I would recommend cleaning your hair dryer ever 6 months, but truthfully I only remember to do it about once a year (I’m terrible!).
