I have never tried the egg cartons, but will for when we go camping. I have been using the toilet paper and paper towel rolls for years. I use twine and run it through the tube so that the lint catches for sure. I also pack the tubes as full as I can. We use these to light our wood burning furnace all winter.

Jacqueline, great idea for fire starters. Sometimes the best ideas come from simple creative innovations that use what would normally be thrown away. This is certainly one of those ideas. Lord knows I have plenty of dryer lint and tubes. I've been working on a small patio area with a firepit included. Maybe this will be the year to get it completed. :-) ***** Have a great fire starter day.
