    Can you describe what it looks like? I’ve tried the crevice tool and it is too thick.I did read taping a cardboard tube to the hose and it will compress,I think I’ll try that.Thanks for your suggestion.

    I use the lint itself for cleaning mine. First I gather a little bit with my fingers and use rub it over the remaining lint. It works great. The lint is like a magnet. You can also rub the lint trap with a dryer sheet between uses.

    I bought one of those long, thin lint brushes that can be put into the vent.
