dd and i r spending the summer at my parents house and i have convinced them to use our laundry det and not use fabric softener and dryer sheets, but i know their dryer must be well coated by now! have any of you cleaned the inside of the dryer and if so did you just spray some cleaner on it and wipe it or is there something else that im not thinking of (we have both h20/vinegar solution and a little of that clorox greenworks spray left from cleaning out our apartment this weekend)?<br><br>

yes if i were you i wouldnt use it at all. i talked my parents into just using those blue spikey dryer balls. i dont use them with my dipes, but sometimes with other clothes that i think might need some softening, especially new towels and sheets -things that are stiff. i just wiped my parents dryer out with my vinegar solution, so im hoping that will work!

Thanks for bringing this up! I never considered that there would be dryer buildup!<br><br>
I saw those spiky balls at the store yesterday--I have been paring down our laundry system (no scents, etc) so I am thinking if I use the balls, DH won't even notice that there isn't fabric softener????
