SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (KY3) - Here’s how to keep your blow dryer clean.

How to:

  • 1. Always be sure the blow dryer is unplugged before cleaning.
  • 2. To keep blow dryers functioning well and from overheating, it’s important to clean the air filter area at the back of the blow dryer.
  • 3. Most blow dryers have a cover that goes over a screen or filter. This filters lint at the air intake. If this clogs up with hair, lint, and fuzz, the dryer can overheat and burn out. This is usually removable. Check the back end of your dryer. The cover will usually turn or pop off. If in doubt, refer to your instructions
  • 4. Remove this cover and brush the screen area with a soft brush. If it is removable, you can wash it, allow to dry, and then replace it. Finish by replacing the cover.
  • 5. If the cover is not removable, use the soft brush to reach in and brush out the lint and dust.
  • 6. If you have styling product residue on the dryer, use rubbing alcohol on a paper towel or cloth to clean it off.

Warnings & Cautions: Unplug the dryer prior to cleaning.

Linda Says: She suggests doing this every three months.
