From A Mum 'n the Oven: A great home and CAMPING tip! Instead of tossing out your lint, save up toilet paper rolls, paper towel rolls and even wrapping paper tubes. Cut the longer ones into smaller sections, stuff them with lint and you have yourself some great fire starters!! :)
Hang a paper towel roll using a bungee cord from the tent struts. Great way to keep the roll the roll handy but protects it from from falling on the ground and getting dirty and from getting wet if it starts raining!
Without a doubt its SO much nicer to have a roll of toilet paper on your camping trip... But one of the inherent downfalls for a roll of toilet paper is it acts like a huge blotter absorbing the humidity from the air and making it almost useless. And too, that unexpected rain shower can turn that roll hanging on a stick to a blob of mush in short order. Coffee cans are wonderful for keeping your important papers dry and ready for use under any outdoors weather condition.
