    This is a great idea, Paul. We use used toilet paper rolls and stuff them full of dryer lint to take camping. It makes a great fire starter.

    I prefer making a 12 pack of more portable and longer burning dryer lint packets. Fill an egg carton with lint and Vaseline. Cut into 12 sections,, fold onto itself and then wrap in a small piece of foil or saran wrap. 1 tiny egg size ball burns for 15 minutes smoothly. Take them camping and will burn even in the rain.
