Household Tip from Shari
Use the nylon net your onions come in from store. Tie it around the end of the hose that drains into your tub. It catches all the lint and keeps it from blocking the drain.
Great tip Shari! I love household tips that also include recycling!
Your tip can be implemented in a matter of a couple of minutes, but it could potentially save several hours of aggravation and possibly even a great deal of money.
Plumbers are not cheap!
Since my washing machine drains in a drain pipe all its own instead of a laundry tub, I don't have this problem, so I probably never would have thought of passing on this household tip.
Thank you for submitting your laundry tip. I am sure there will be lots of people out there whose washing machine does drain into their laundry tub and they will be forever grateful to you for your advice.
