A home made lint trap for the laundry tub.

Andrew in Toronto has solved the problem of laundry lint blocking his laundry tub and causing it to overflow.

The stocking collects the lint so that it can't block the drain and it is easy to clean or change the stocking when it collects too much lint itself.
