How do I get the blue dye (probably from wet blue jeans) off the inside of the drum of my dryer?

I have a Kenmore dryer model 110.62822101 and there is blue dye on the inside of the drum of my dryer probably from wet blue jeans. It's not a problem except sometimes when a new load of wet laundry, like lighter colors, is drying, I think the humidity in the dryer causes the dye to transfer to some of the clothes. What can I use to remove the dye from the dryer drum or will it even come off.

Unstable dyes in clothes can transfer to the rear bulkhead. The dye is more noticeable now that the bulkheads are white instead of grey.

The dyes do not usually transfer from the dryer to clothes.

To remove the dye you can make a paste out of powdered detergent and little water and scrub the area with the dye to remove it. Do not use any alcohol or any other flammable cleaners in the dryer.

The dye should not transfer from the dryer to clothes.

If you have stains that have transferred the following web site has excellent information on removing all kinds of stains:

Soap and Detergent Association
