Electrolax

Lintassesment

Created by: Kennecticut

Pronunciation: lint~assesment

Sentence: With her thumb and forefinger lintassesment tool, it was confirmed that this filament could be removed. She turned to page 32 of the manual on ' The right tool for the job' and found she needed the enticement tool, stored adjacent to the crevice tool. Noting the enticement tool has a row of brushes to if not actually vacuum the lint then at least entrap it for later cleaning of the enticement tool itself. The thumb and forefinger lintassesment tool also works well for this specialized task. She might have done just as well utilizing the black slack lint magnet tool. Maybe next time, then she can leave the work up to the professionals and the dry cleaners.
