Doing the laundry may seem simple, but there are a few important steps that often get skipped in the process. One of these important steps is cleaning out the dryer’s lint catcher, which can become a huge fire hazard if it’s consistently forgotten about.
This note from the lint itself lets the kids know that if Mom hadn’t cleaned out the lint catcher, there’s a good chance it could’ve led to a fire. That’s a pretty substantial amount of lint, so it’s safe to assume the kids had been forgetting to clean it out pretty consistently. This humorous note should have gotten them on the right track, though!
