AUGUSTA, Ga. (WJBF) – Dryer Vent Wizard of CSRA in Augusta helped set the Guinness World Record for worlds largest ball of lint.

The company began collecting lint in April of 2019 in an effort to raise awareness about the dangers of dryer fires, and encouraged the company’s 95 franchises to save lint they cleaned from clients homes.

The company’s corporate team and franchises gathered in Michigan, where the 690 pound lint ball was weighed and then set on fire by the fire department.

The ball of lint was officially measured to be 19 feet 6 inches in circumference and 4 feet 4 inches in height.
