One more thing I meant to put in the post below...
I did a load of laundry on Sunday.
I opened the dryer to find a ton of little crispy brown pieces.
Upon further inspection, I realized they were dried leaf bits.
It seems Mr. Alex filled up the pockets of his cargo pants with colorful leaves and I didn't check.
So I had to use the dust buster to clean out the dryer and the lint trap.
At least it wasn't gum:)
