  • (It's a lint trap, sweetie.) I use a shop vac, it gets rid of the lint that accumulates around the trap very well!

  • They also sell kits that can help you out. Here is an example of one.

    I've seen different brands at my local Target store and I'm sure other stores sell them too.  This isn't what I purchased, I just wanted to show you an example and I don' t remember my brand.

  • Use the long attachment on your vacuum, it will work fine.
