Rate this product

Hurricane Lint Lizard is a device for cleaning the lint out of your dryer. It's about three feet long and can reach into the most difficult crevices to make sure that the dryer is cleaned efficiently. It is extremely cost-effective and can speed up drying times by at least a quarter of an hour. This can save you lots of time when drying clothes. Also, it allows you to save on your electricity bills.

Total Cost Breakdown

The cost of Hurricane Lint Lizard is $10.99 plus $5.99 shipping, for a total price of $16.98.

Price is from As Seen on TV Commercial page: hurricanelintlizard.com

How It Works

The device is around three feet in length, which allows it to reach deep into the dryer and to access every single crevice. It is extremely flexible and can be used as an attachment to a conventional vacuum cleaner. Using this device can remove the clogging from your dryer, thus returning your dryer to peak efficiency. You require this device if you find that your clothes do not come out dry despite running the dryer for a long time. This is usually due to link clogging up the dryer, and is actually dangerous for the dryer motor, as it can cause it to burn out. Thus, this device, by cleaning your dryer and returning it to utmost efficiency, can actually save you a lot of money on repairs.

Cleaning the dryer also prevents potentially dangerous situations, such as a vent fire. While there are brushes that are used to clean dryers, these are far less efficient than the Hurricane Lint Lizard. These brushes will only remove some of the link accumulated in the dryer, while this device cleans it completely. All the lint from the dryer collects in the collection bag of your vacuum cleaner, where it can easily be disposed of. The device itself is very intuitive in operation, making the cleaning up process very easy.

Save Money

As lint collects in your dryer, the device becomes less and less efficient. As it becomes less efficient, you will have to run it for longer periods of time. Running the dryer for increased periods of time places a strain on the motor and causes it to heat up. Not only can this potentially cause the motor to burn out, leading to expensive repair bills, but it massively increases your electricity bills.

Thus, the Hurricane Lint Lizard can not only save your repair cost but also save you a great deal of money on electric bills. A dryer that receives regular maintenance requires less servicing, which is another important saving.

Features

  • Durable Casing

    The device is made of extremely durable plastic and is very difficult to break. This means that it will last for a considerable period of time and not require replacement.

  • Three Feet of Reach

    The hose of the device is more than three feet long, allowing it to reach right into the vent of your dryer, and to clean extremely difficult to access crevices. This allows you to remove the packed and compressed lint collected there quickly and easily.

Pros

  • Easy to Use

    This device is extremely intuitive and very easy to use, which means that it can be put to use by people of all ages, including teenagers. This makes it a great benefit to any family. Most homes already have a vacuum cleaner, and that’s all that really needed to power this device. It comes with a very clear set of instructions that allows just about anyone who can read to use the device effectively.

  • Can Prevent Fire

    The device safeguards your family by preventing potential fire caused by a motor shutting out or burning out. When you consider the potential damage that a house fire can cost, you realize that this device is a very small investment to prevent such an occurrence. Dryers whose vents are closed could certainly cause fires. Being able to clean those vents properly improves levels of safety in the home, safeguarding the lives of your family and protecting valuable property.

  • A Double Offer

    When you buy the device you get the Hurricane Dust Lizard, a sister device that is extremely effective in cleaning crevices and crannies around the home. The Dust Lizard is very effective in clearing out air vents and in cleaning the tracks of the sliders of windows and doors. It can also clean electronics.

    The Dust Lizard can remove material collected in the spaces between the floor tiles, and it's good at cleaning difficult to reach corners and gently cleaning expensive decorations around the home, such as sculptures. It's useful to clean anything that is delicate, including chandeliers on ceilings.

  • Multiple Methods of Payment

    With the manufacturers accepting a large number of payment portals online, it is very easy to purchase the product. It will be shipped to you at once, so you can put it to use in a very short period of time.

Cons

  • Not Available in Stores

    One thing that is possibly negative about this product is that you cannot buy it in a store down the street. The device can only be purchased online. While this might be a trifle inconvenient, their online site allows you to purchase it using a large number of paying methods, and it’s even more convenient than going to a store.

  • Can Only Solve One Problem

    There are all sorts of issues that could possibly affect a dryer, and if your dryer isn’t working effectively, it is not always because of a clogged vent. While the Hurricane Lint Lizard is certainly an extremely useful maintenance tool, and every family should have one, do be aware that other things could also go wrong with a dryer. If it continues to work inefficiently even after you used the device to clean the vent, you should call a qualified technician to find out what the problem might be.

    That said, in a vast majority of cases it is certainly a clogged vent that causes a dryer to work inefficiently, and this device can certainly solve that problem.

  • Requires an External Device

    Another positive negative about this device is that it actually needs to be attached to a vacuum cleaner, and if you don’t have a vacuum cleaner, the device is practically useless. However, this isn’t as much of a problem as it may first appear. Just about every family does own a vacuum cleaner, and if this device had its own powered mechanism, it would considerably increase the cost of the device. By allowing the device to be attached to a vacuum cleaner, the manufacturers have massively reduced the cost of the device and made it far more accessible.

Alternatives

There are lots of lint brushes on the market that can be used to remove lint. Some of these have flexible heads that can reach into vents to better remove lint.

Issues

  • Tube Not Easily Flexible

    The clear plastic tube that attaches is a little hard to move around, but it's flexible enough that it can dig into the crevices of your dryer.

Complaints

  1. Need Some Effort to Attach

    The piece that attaches to your vacuum may need a little extra oomph to get it on right. Don't start by jamming it on, but don't be afraid to gently push it either.

  2. May Not Fit Every Vacuum

    Some users have reported that it does not fit their vacuum, rendering the Hurricane Lint Lizard ineffective for them.

Critical Advice

Make sure you have a good vacuum that you can easily empty over and over again. Some dryers may be so clogged they can fill two vacuum bins full of lint! The easier it is to empty your vacuum bag or bin, the smoother the process will be.

Tips & Tricks

  1. Heat the Tube Before Use

    Some reviews report that the tube is a bit stiff, so applying a little heat from a hair dryer or soaking it in hot water for a few moments might help loosen it up. Don't use boiling water, and if using a hair dryer, start with low heat and gradually increase.

  2. Use Your Hands

    Your dryer most likely has large piles of lint built up, which might get stuck at the opening of the tube. You'll have to manually remove the oversized pieces of lint with your hands.

  3. Use Around the House

    This is so easy to use that you don't just have to use it for your dryer. Use the Hurricane Lint Lizard to clean hard to reach spots, like corners and ceilings. The length of the tube makes it practical for all sorts of cleaning, not just dryers.

How it's Different from Competitors

The Hurricane Lint Lizard has quite a few long-standing competitors. The tube is longer than most similar items sold. Some reviews of similar products have the same issue that the tube is not very flexible. The prices of similar products from competitors vary greatly and the cost of the Hurricane Lint Lizard can vary depending on where you purchase it.

Easy to Use

  1. Piece Together and go

    Assembly of the Hurricane Lint Lizard takes approximately a minute, even with the extra oomph to attach to the vacuum.

  2. Reaches Deep Into Crevices

    When you use the Hurricane Lint Lizard, you can easily put the tube down into the lint catcher in the front of your dryer and pull out tons of built-up lint. It only takes a few moments to get the lint out.

  3. Goes Into Your Vacuum

    There is no need to collect lint into a bag or garbage can when you clean out your dryer. The Hurricane Lint Lizard easily attaches to your vacuum and you just have to empty the vacuum bin or bag. You won't have to chase lint debris because they won't fall on the floor.

  4. Indoor/outdoor Lint Remover

    The Hurricane Lint Lizard can clean the inside of your dryer, but also the outside vent. Step outside, open your vent and start getting that lint out. It will add to the effectiveness of your dryer.

Save Time

While it will take about 15-30 minutes to clean out your dryer, this will make your dryer more effective. You'll need to put in that initial time every few months, but in the long run, it will save you time each time you dry laundry.
