Two layers of tulle netting will catch most of the solid waste, saving your pipes or septic system. The string at the top allows you to tightly tie the filter around any sized discharge pipe up to 2.5 inches.
Years ago I started making my own filters. My filters are larger, about 10.5 x 4.5 inches, and the weave is smaller than the aluminum ones I was buying at the hardware store. Simply put, they do a better job!
The tulle netting was diverted from landfill by a local nonprofit. The thread is from a crafter’s recycling store. Any plastic used is recycled. Color of plastic and thread may vary. All of these unwanted items destined for landfill have come together creating a very useful lint filter.
As with any filter, make sure it doesn’t cover the tub drain or the overflow will be a mess. Hike up the filter on your discharge pipe if you need to. Keep an eye on it and replace it when the filter is about 2/3 full so there is no obstruction of your washer’s discharge.
I have several other filter packs available.
I accept PayPal, but can invoice using Square if you prefer.
Most packages will be sent using USPS the next business day after receiving your payment; the same day if possible.
I know 'free shipping' is very popular, but everyone should realize that ultimately there is no such thing. No matter how nice I am to the postal clerk, they must be paid. Any business offering it has increased item prices to cover the shipping expense. I would like to be honest about it and say 'Shipping Included'.
Please contact me within ten days of your order date and I'm sure we will find a solution. I charge a 10% restocking fee on returns. Return shipping is the responsibility of the buyer, and since shipping is a service provided by a third party, return postage cannot be refunded. Custom orders cannot be returned.
Many of my items are true one-of-a-kind creations, as I prefer to work with rescued/recycled materials, and I couldn’t make them again, even if I wanted to. I remove sold items quickly after a craft fair. If an item is no longer available, I will try to find a suitable replacement, or refund the transaction with my sincere apology.
