My lint normally has a grey tinge of dog fur.    I think I get enough off the lint trap for another dog.... Smiley


I agree... my lint is the same way... I have 6 dogs and a cat... Yea... I think I can make a blanket with 5 days worth of lint.

Wow.   If pet hair isn't supposed to be on craft projects, I too am screwed.

I'm also screwed if it's not supposed to be on clothes, shoes, purses, in my hair, on my skin, in my bed, on my furniture, and yes, even inside of my computer.  

Maybe I should go for a hairless dog next time...

Um, you forgot the car, food, hell, I've found it in my ice cube trays...

I, too, am fascinated by dryer lint. (I love the firestarters, I'm saving up for a nice fire-pit - unless someone here knows how to make one of those...?) I feel better having found this thread.

I imagine it could also be used, just in small pinches of fiber, for colorful infusions on decoupage and papier mache... non?

When I was in Girl Guides we would save our dryer lint so we could make fire starters. We put a lump of the dryer lint into an emptycardboard egg carton egg holder and then pour melted pariffin wax on it. It is great to bring camping because they ignigte well. Hope I was helpful.

it's not a crafty thing, but it's an earthy thing-
my husband and i occasionally toss our dryer lint into the back yard. the birds use it in their nests. personally i think it's best to do this with loads that you know are natural fibers - like towels.
we usually have an ongoing pile of "birdy fluff" on top of the dryer Wink

You can also put lint into your compost pile! It works better if it's a worm bin though...

I think you could buy some flat rocks/patio stones at Home Depot/Loews/your local patio stone store, and dig a pit in your ground...  Then line it with the stones, fill in the cracks with cement (like grouting tile on the floor?) and add in your logs and handy lint-firestarters.   You could even build little benches around it and have a special place for your marshmallow sticks!   Oh, I wish I had a big backyard so I could have my very own firepit...

And yes, I did forget in the car and on food...   My fridge has an ice-cube maker, so I don't find it in my ice...   as often.

someone was asking earlier if you can make yarn out of the lint from dryer traps, and i'm pretty sure that you can't. my friend made a decent attempt at doing this and was unsuccessful.. i know there is an artist that makes clothes out of lint and my friend made mittens and a sweater out of lint but i think she somehow cheated and used glue, so it wasn't completely sturdy/functional.
