#2434: GlowHose

Clothes dryers should be cleaned out every 2-3 years, but many are never cleaned at all.

Lint starts building up inside the ventilation hose, reducing the airflow and efficiency of the dryer until it clogs or even catches fire.

Today’s invention is therefore a short light-rope supplied with each new drier hose and powered via a socket in the body of the machine.

This rope would be moored on a series of stalks inside the hose, as shown, so that when the lint had built up to a significant level, the light would be locally less visible when the machine was switched on.
