Although there are numerous methods to remove lint from clothes while washing, one method involves running the clothes through the air-only cycle of the dryer before washing. Add a dryer sheet to the dryer, which softens the fibers of the clothing.
- Remove lint from the filter
Before loading the dryer with the clothes, remove excess lint buildup from the dryer's filter.
- Set the dryer's heat setting to air only
Turn the clothes right-side-out, and place them into the dryer. Add a dryer sheet to soften the clothing. Run the dryer.
- Wash the clothes
When washing the clothes, be sure not to overload the washer. Overcrowding can redeposit lint onto the clothing.
