All it does is trap lint and sometimes it's a freakish outie instead of a proper respectable innie.

And how come the lint is usually blue-gray, instead of the color of your clothes?

Inquiring minds want to know! But, seeing as there are none here, you may continue your relentless drive to post crap here as with all other threads. Carry on!

"Why is my lint always blue-gray?" According to the survey, lint color reflects the color of the clothes you're wearing, and most popular colors all taken together produce a blue-gray hue, much the same as they do in dryer lint.

Dr. Karl rocks! I was back in Oz while he was doing serious research into this. I think he won an igNobel for it. JJJ is now streaming his show pre-recorded, which means I can listen to it anytime - hurrah!

(And I already knew all this, but it made for a "good" copycat :D )
