As you can imagine, with four kids and eight pets, we're up to our ears in dirty laundry. A few times a year, we get caught up and we'll have a nice little stack of empty laundry baskets and my heart just does a cheery happy dance inside. I try to keep up the momentum, washing everything in sight, but eventually the laundry gods call my number and I'm faced with waist-high piles again. Sometimes, the laundry gods will take pity on me and toss a few coins my way for encouragement. The other day, they really surprised me when I cleared the lint screen. I had just dried a bunch of new beach towels and when I pulled out the lint screen, it was covered in bright turquoise lint! Lucky me! (What can I say.... I'm easy to please) A quick google search revealed there's several things you can do with lint: make home-made paper, make lint clay, use it as a fire starter, put it out for nesting materials for birds and use it for snugglies for your little animals. Aha! We have one of those! So, I gave it to our little guinea pig, Tin Tin, and he was visibly thrilled as you can see.
