On Hold 5 Washing Machine Lint Traps 9.5 x 5 inches

If you don’t want it down the drain, you have to strain, and the smaller the weave, the more it will catch. 5 lint screen filters for discharge pipes up to 2.5 inches if your washing machine empties into a sink or washtub.

Years ago I started making my own filters. My filters are larger and the weave is smaller than the aluminum ones I was buying at the hardware store. Simply put, they do a better job!

► Set of 5
► Measures about 9.5 x 5 inches – 24.13 x 12.7 cm
► Color of thread, tulle, and plastic may vary

Several 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. I leave seam threads long and pulled to the inside of the filters, as they will aid in straining.

Recycling Works!
The tulle netting was diverted from landfill by FabMo, an ecologically minded nonprofit. The thread is from SCRAP, a crafter’s recycling store. Any plastic used is recycled. The color of tulle, plastic, and thread will vary, but all my lint traps provide the same great filtering service. Occasionally small tulle pieces, that would otherwise be thrown away, will be placed inside a lint trap for increased filtering.

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.

    Payment Policy

    I accept PayPal, but can invoice using Square if you prefer.

    Shipping Policy

    Most packages will be sent using USPS the next business day after receiving your payment; the same day if possible.

    Shipping Included:
    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'.

    Return/Exchange Policy

    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.

    Other Policies

    Item Availability:
    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.
