I own a condo and have a washer/dryer in my unit - I'm forced to vent indoors. When I run the dryer, I get condensation on the windows and I have so much dust that it bands together and forms "dust buffalos", not just ordinary "dust bunnies".

Does anyone have any recommendations on how to control the lint and steam that come from venting indoors? I've googled for hours and have only been able to find hundreds of people saying not to ... unfortunately, I don't have an option.

You can purchase 'indoor vent kits' (see the following link) for dryers to help trap most of the lint that gets past the lint filter but will do nothing for the moisture.

The only thing you could do about the moisture which is expelled with the dryer's exhaust is purchase a 'condensing dryer'model (see the following link) which are fairly expensive.

A little less expencive option would be to put a dehumidifier in your utillity room and close the door when drying, this with a lint trap should help out a little.
