Attention, alternative energy engineers

Can’t you find a way to make clean-burning energy out of dryer lint?  It’s a renewable resource, and any lint that escapes combustion can be recaptured by way of a screen at the top of the smokestack.  (Although, I’d hate to be the poor bastard who has to climb up there to clean it.) I mean, it’s already clean, having been through the washer AND the dryer, and since it’s dry already, it should be quick-burning.

And if not– tell me how to felt the little blue-gray bastards so I can make tote bags out of them.

    You’re so funny. But it does sound like it burns well.

    If you ever move on to the felting idea, I could get you lots more colors. I end up sorting my clothes such that we get dryer lint in red/purple, blue/green, pale green/gray, black or largely white. I hadn’t thought of the artistic possibilities…
