If your clothes have been coming out of the dryer a little too damp lately, it might mean your dryer needs a deep cleaning. But you don’t have to call in the professionals — Amazon has a solution, and it’s only $11, down from $20. That's nearly 50% off!

It’s the Sealegend Dryer Vent Cleaner kit and you can have it shipped to you for free if you have Amazon Prime, of course. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)

This kit is designed to be used with a vacuum cleaner to suck out all of the lint and debris your lint screen didn’t catch. Yep, that means it can get little bits of fiber that have been stuck inside your machine for years! Once you get all the gunk out, your clothes will dry faster and you’ll save energy and money.

What comes in the kit

This is a three-piece kit. It comes with a hose, an adapter and a guide wire. The hose is 33 inches long and is extra narrow so you can get deep inside your dryer. The adapter allows you to attach the hose to your vacuum tube (FYI: it does not work with robot vacuums). The guide wire attaches to the end of the hose to help you push the hose into nooks and crannies of your dryer.

How it works

Once you have the hose attached to your vacuum, remove the lint screen from your dryer. Then, using the guide wire, stick the end of the hose into the slot and turn on your vacuum. Finally, let the vacuum run while moving the hose around inside the dryer — then watch the magic happen as you start seeing your vacuum fill up with lint.

This gadget gets a lot of love from Amazon customers — it has received more than 12,000 five-star reviews.

“I had been searching far and wide for a way to clean a dryer vent,” wrote one rave reviewer. “[I] even tried to make gadgets that would reach into this dark, cavernous collector of lint. Then. It happened. Saw this product on Amazon and allowed it to change my life forever. Well, not literally...but you know what I mean. My dryer is clean, my knuckles aren't scraped and all is well in the laundry room. 😀"

“This thing is seriously amazing,” another happy shopper shared. “I figured out how to use it very quickly, and it worked like a charm. I had a sock stuck way down in my vent and would've had no idea! I still can't believe how much lint and dust came out of my dryer. My husband is already talking about other uses for this unique tool, like getting into tight spaces in our cars. Highly recommend!!!”

“Amazing!” said a satisfied customer. “This pulled out a few pounds of lint that I never even would have guessed had collected in my dryer vent!!! I didn’t know there was room for the amount of lint that I pulled out with this vacuum piece!! It’s crazy!”
