Yeah......really......nasty-stinky belly button lint http://i210.photobucket.com/albums/bb252/Ronnies_Pets/smileys%20emoticons/stink.gif and freshly-laundered Downey infused dryer lint are two ENTIRELY different things..............

I suppose if you had enough of it, you could stuff it into a trash bag/pet food bag/feed sack and make a pillow.

Or insulate your house.

I helped tear down an old house once. The walls were insulated with old newspapers. I suppose it was effective, but the fire marshal would likely not approve.

If you have enough it could be used to filter water with a little charcoal.
