How do I clean the filter in my tumble dryer?

Locate the filter, usually inside the door rim or behind a panel at the front of the dryer. Remove as much lint as you can with a brush before swiping the screen with a used fabric softener sheet to pick up any lingering pieces. Give the filter and the lint trap a once over with a vacuum cleaner to get it extra clean.
