Over the years I have tossed loads of dryer lint into the trash. I've even tried composting it but with all the synthetic fibers in it it doesn't break down so well. While I can totally live with tossing it out it is nice to be able to find something useful to do with it.
A few weeks ago I read that a couple of fellow bloggers were using it to make firestarters and I thought that was a great idea. I mentioned it to my oldest daughter and she said she had heard about that too and wanted to try it.
So we did. Every time we cleaned out the lint trap in the dryer we stuck the wad of fluff into an empty toilet paper tube. After we filled up a couple of them I took them in the kitchen and got out the waxed paper.
Wrapping a couple of them in narrow strips of waxed paper I twisted the ends. Now next time we start up the chiminea on the back deck we'll have these to use. You just strike a match to the twisted ends and away they go.
What do you think? Is this something you would do or is it just too over the top?
