Our web guy Andrew saves dryer lint for starting backyard fires. I always thought this was nuts until I read something today suggesting dryer lint is a wasted resource!

1. Some people even use lint in fires INSTEAD of lighter fluid.

2. For lining cages. Hamsters, mice and guinea pigs LOVE it.

3. Mulch -- it biodegrades easily and improves the soil.

4. Papermaking -- this isn't a craft I'm familiar with, but a lot of people do it.

5. Put it outside this spring for birds to use as nesting material.
