Our washing machine drains to a utility sink, which was regularly clogging with lint until I started keeping a nylon stocking around the hose outlet. That works fine, but after a month or two the stocking is so clogged with slimy lint that I have to invert it and scrape the lint off. Or it just tears altogether.
It seems wasteful to go through nylons like this, but all of the washing machine lint traps I see for sale online appear to be similarly disposable. Is there a way to catch lint coming out of the drain hose that doesn't involve swapping out disposable filters/nylons?
Is there something I can build that will be more straightforward to clean the lint paste scum off of?
