Dryer lint is extremely flammable and makes a great fire starter! And, besides being FREE, it's something we all have plenty of! At this time of the year I save all the dryer lint and put it in with my newspapers, etc. that I have saved for starting a fire in my woodburning stove.

Sounds like a great idea to me. I was wondering though if there would be any chemical concerns with burning lint. Surely it has to be less so than with a firelog starter. (12/08/2000)
One of my friends also uses dryer lint as a fire starter. She saves toilet paper and paper towel tubes and stuffs them full of the lint and stows it all in a basket near the fireplace. (10/01/2008)
