Introducing the Lint Lizard, it’s like a magic wand that cleans deep into any dryer. The flexible Lint Lizard attaches right to any vacuum hose. Look how much lint we got out of this dryer. All this lint that escapes past your lint screen. Yuck, a clogged dryer works harder! All that lint can even burn out your motor, or worse it can start a dangerous vent fire.
It’s a full 40 inches long and cleans deep into your vent system, grabbing all the packed-in lint that’s choking your dryer. After a quick cleaning with the Lint Lizard your dryer vent is clear, making it work less and run more efficiently. Old fashioned lint brushes pull out some lint and the lint gets everywhere. The Lint Lizard cleans deeper and sends the lint right into your vac bag. Vacuuming between machines and under appliances is a snap! Take it outdoors to vac your outside vent.

Our Lint Lizard Review
In our evaluation of the Lint Lizard, we noted the following observations:
Size & Shape
To our surprise, we opened the box and noticed that the clear tube was very thick and curved due to the packaging. The clear tube is more rigid than expected. This is apparently an expected issue, as the directions suggested using a hair dryer or hot water to soften it, but we were unable to get this technique to work. The tubing is wider than we expected and didn’t fit easily in the dryer we tested. Not all dryer vents are the same, and this product may not be as universal as advertised.
Using Lint Lizard
We attached the Lint Lizard to the vacuum and it did seem to collect much of the lint that was otherwise out of reach. It’s fit in the vent entrance, however, was tight. The suction is also limited to your vacuum’s capabilities. We were able to retrieve a fairly large amount of lint, but the plastic hose proved to be inflexible and awkward to use. We would have liked a little more flexibility to reach some areas, but the end result was a large amount of lint removed from the dryer.
If you can get the Lint Lizard to fit in your dryer, it will probably remove a fair amount of lint and dirt. The biggest drawback is the rigidity of the clear tubing. Depending on the attachments already included with your vacuum, Lint Lizard may or may not be a useful tool for you.
We suggest picking up a Lint Lizard for about $11 at a local store. If it doesn’t work in your dryer, you can return it easily and you won’t be out shipping charges.
