If you've ever forgotten a stick of gum in your jean's pocket or left a crayon in a shirt pocket and ran them through the dryer, you know what a mess they can make. However, removing a gum or waxy stain from your dryer drum isn't too difficult.
Set the dryer temperature to warm.
Put a couple of old towels in the dryer and let it run for a few minutes. This will help loosen the glop.
While the towels are warming up in the dryer, mix 1 tbsp. laundry detergent with a little bit of water to create a paste.
Take the towels out of the dryer.
Scoop the detergent paste with a rag and scrub the gum or crayon area.
After the glop has been removed, wipe down the inside of the dryer for any remaining residue.
Dry some damp, clean rags in the dryer to make sure all the glop is gone.
