Chaser’s World Weird Web: Five Ways to Reuse Your Dryer Lint

Craig Veltri

If you are throwing away your dryer lint, then you are apparently wasting a very valuable household resource.

According to Networx.com, here are five ways you can reuse that dryer lint.

  1. To start a fire.  Dryer lint is highly flammable, so you can use it in a fireplace or campfire instead of lighter fluid.
  2. Cage liner for hamsters and guinea pigs.  They love it because it is great for building beds and nests.  Just don’t use it near a cage heater or electric lamp.
  3. Mulch.  It’s great for potted plants or outdoor flowerbeds because it breaks down naturally and enriches the soil.
  4. Paper making.  If you make your own paper for crafts or stationary, use dryer lint in the slurry.  Supposedly it adds interesting textures and colors, and is also great in paper mache’.
  5. Nesting material for birds.  If you have any trees nearby, birds are probably already raiding your dryer vent for lint.  Might as well collect it and leave it out for them.

Whatever you do with your dryer lint, do not use it for stuffing toys or pillows.  It can cause a fire if you’re not careful with it.
