From D-Fuzz-It to Suede Brush.
I tried, in vain, to find a history of lint and its uses. That assemblage of lint removal devices and related products is fairly representative of what kept turning up in my research.
I understand why people don't always like to find lint where it accumulates: on your clothing, or in your navel. But why this obsession with removing lint?
This substance is everywhere. It pervades our society, rests in our pockets and gets caught in our clothes dryers.
Why, in this age of green practically-everything-else, has no one found a practical use for lint?
In an effort to open America's eyes to the vitality of lint, I suggest these practical ways of recycling this resource which so often is wasted - wasted, I tell you - and thrown out with the trash.
Before it's too late, start using recyclable, renewal, sustainable lint as a green substitute for:
- Paper towels
- Drink coasters
Oh, dear. The Lemming needs to take a break.
