Left Over Lint?

I'm still laughing at this post I read today from

I'm thinking Christmas presents?????

The average household in North America does about 400 loads of laundry per year, according to the San Diego Gas and Electric Company, which amounts to a very large pile of lint. Dryer lint can be a useful material in crafts or other household

    OK ... that's a bit frugal for my tastes. (still laughing)

  2. Ack! I do mountains of laundry! Just think of what I could make! hee.

  3. A friend of mine is an 8th grade teacher and one year she actually had me collecting lint so her class could make handmade papers. Hey! If papers can be made from elephant poop (in Sri Lanka and India), then I am thinking lint is a good way to go. :) Hope you are having a great weekend. Tammy

  4. What!?!
    I was looking for directions for a dryer lint project for my son as a fireplace starter. You put dryer lint in a cardboard egg carton and then pour melted wax over it. You then cut apart each cup for a fire starter.
    But . . . I then read on one site not to use lint from synthetic fabrics as the smoke could be toxic so I gave it up.

  5. Now, that's not wasting a thing! There are folks way more creative than I am.

  6. Wow, talk about creative. Well it is a fiber right?!
    Thanks for sharing!

  7. LOL... I'm with you on the NOT too!

    Creativity abounds!

  8. Well, I know what I'm getting everyone in my family for Christmas this year!!!
    Maybe I could try it with belly button lint!!! HaHaHaHa :)

  9. You make me laugh. Love it.
