Did you know duct tape is actually meant for duct work? Not for fixing shoes or hemming pants or making wallets? Had I not been a bit of an idiot (a couple times over), I might not have had the chance to use it for it’s true purpose.
For the past few months, I’ve noticed that every time I use the dryer, my kitchen windows would fog up. Somehow, I didn’t think anything of this. Which was pretty dumb on my part. As it turned out, the dryer duct stretching from the dryer to the wall was ripped. Which means my dryer has been venting into my house. For months.
