Dryer Lint to Fire Starter 04/05/2011
This is a fabulous way to make use of dryer lint from home! These fire starters cost basically nothing to make.
Cardboard egg carton
Microwave-safe glass bowl
Remove all metal bits from the candle and place it in a microwave-safe bowl. Melt into liquid wax - shouldn't take more than thirty seconds. Fill each egg carton ¾ full with dryer lint. Drizzle liquid wax on top to keep lint in place. With scissors, cut each egg carton into individual fire starters. Store fire starters in resealable bags and make sure to keep them dry. These are great for camping, emergency kits, or for building a roaring fire in your fireplace.
Lint is extremely flammable so be careful to not leave these anywhere near an unattended flame!
