Can you deodorize your dryer? Dip a clean cloth in distilled white vinegar. Run the cloth around the inside of the dryer, including under the rubber gasket that seals the door. The vinegar deodorizes the dryer’s interior. Leave the door of the machine open until the vinegar smell dissipates.
Why does the inside of my dryer stink? Lint buildup: When lint accumulates in dryer vents, it limits air circulation, allowing existing odors to remain. Another sign of restricted airflow is when your dryer takes too long to dry clothes. Lint that originates from smelly clothing can also retain that odor so the dryer smells bad when running.
How do I freshen the inside of my dryer? Wipe Down the Dryer Drum
Once a month, use a spray of 1/2 white vinegar and 1/2 water to mist the inside of the drum. Wipe it down with a microfiber cloth, and leave the dryer door open so it can air dry.
How do I deep clean my dryer? Unplug the dryer and turn off gas valve if you have a gas-powered dryer. Use an old curtain rod, bent slightly with a pipe bender, attached to your vacuum hose to suck up any lint or debris deep inside the link trap housing. Or use your dryer lint removal kit’s flexible lint trap brush to remove any remaining lint.
