Dryer & Vacuum Lint

Fuzz consisting especially of fine ravelings and short fibers of plant and plastic-based yarn and fabric, dust, dirt, pet fur, hair or other materials collected in a dryer or vacuum filter.

Many clothing and linen fabrics are now composed of synthetic fibers that must be disposed of in the trash. Lint from 100% cotton or other confirmed natural fibers can be composted.
