Nope. I don't feel bad about throwing it out.

There's a fine line between hoarding, and being thrifty. Saving dryer lint is probably crossing that line.

None of those are relevant to me.  I guess I'll keep throwing my lint out, like a non-crazy person.

If you save it, you can make a matching sock to makeup for the missing sock...

We don't. My girlfriend started making us save it a couple years ago and. Ow she uses it to stuff little creepy stuffed animals she makes for kids. It is kind of awesome.

That read like

1) it's very flammable so use it to start fires

2) - 7) use it to make very flammable stuff


8) Put it outside for birds to do flammable nests.

I would call it a classic "red flag".

1. Mix it with butter, crisco or some other type of fat.
2. Flatten out two large pieces about the size of your hand.
3. Mash them together, crimping the edges and making a pocket
4. Warm in the microwave for about 5 seconds.
5. Insert lonely cheeto encrusted Fark member
6. Go to town in your mom's basement.

I'm sure that every time the kid hugs their doll and they get enveloped in a grey cloud of fine lint particles that shoot of from between the doll's cloth fibers, this won't lead a few years later to severe breathing issues. Nope.

Use it for fire starters for the fire place or camping.  I can pack a year's worth in a couple of hours, and saves a ton of money over those "fire logs".

Also good for shoving into politician's mouths to plug up the stream of garbage.

Since most clothes contain synthetic materials, pretty much all of those are bad ideas, unless you only saved lint from cotton towel loads.

i rent and our washer and dryer are kept outside.  I use the dryer lint to clean the outside of the appliances.
