My new dryer has a large lint filter on the top. When I remove it, lint and dust fall off the filter onto the top of the dryer, and the dust floats off into the air as well.
In the second picture below, you can see the black dust on top of the dryer.
How can I remove the lint trap cleanly? Please no solutions that involve cleaning up the dust afterwards. I refuse to believe dryers of this type were designed so badly that they always make a mess.
