Soon you’ll be enjoying the warmth and ambiance of flickering flames. Best of all, you’ll make use scrap products that would otherwise end up in the trash. It’s better to find an alternate use than to toss it into the recycling bin. You’ll save money in the process.

Start Saving This Now…

If you haven’t already, start saving your dryer lint. Simply stuff it into a bag or a basket after each use. Before long you’ll have handfuls of fluffy fibers, but you don’t need very much to make fireplace kindling. It’s a way to defray the cost of drying your clothes. It’s bonus material that you can put to good use.

How to Make Your Own Kindling

In addition to saving dryer lint, start saving the cardboard tubes from tissue paper and paper toweling. Make your own cardboard tube kindling by stuffing dryer lint inside. It doesn’t have to be stuffed to the brim. Just add enough to hold it inside.

Simply stick one between dry logs, and light the fluff inside. It will burn long enough to set the wood ablaze. Store it in a woven basket near the fireplace. Wrap the tubes with gift wrap scraps to make them a part of the decorating scheme.
