Camp Fire Starters! Dryer Lint And Paper Toilet Holders
Members Were Sparked
LOVE camp fires and home fires and smores.. We have started recycling toilet paper rolls and the lint from the dryer... We stuff the lint into the cardboard paper towel holder and then put it in a grocery plastic bag for storage.. when it gets full we store it with the firewood and our camping supplies.. We always stuff at least two in the fire with our kindling to start fires.. Its like steel wool, flamable and it works great, plus who would have known to recycle dryer lint for flint starters?
