More Dryer Safety

Here's some more dryer safety hints from:
It's a website for appliance parts, repair help, and more.

Dryer Beware!
"If you don't clean out the lint trap frequently, your dryer may suffer from small internal lint fires. The smell from these fires can leave a strong odor in the clothes drum, which can make your clothes stink when they come out of the dryer. And, if there are any solvents, paints, lacquers, etc. in use in the home, your dryer may alter or amplify the fumes to an odor unlike the natural fumes given off by these liquids."
"You can solve these problems by cleaning all the lint from the inside cabinet and duct work of the dryer. If you charred lint or suspect you've had a lint fire, have a qualified appliance repair technician inspect the dryer for damage. Also, don't run the dryer when using flammable liquids in the home and move all containers of flammable liquids at least 50 feet away from the dryer. Gas dryers have a large flame when operating and can ignite the fumes of any flammable liquid or gas. Next, try to clear the odor in the dryer by running a load or two of old towels or rags which have been run through the washing machine. After that, you should be back in business - ready to complete your laundry odor-free."
