I don't keep my rag bag segrated by color but for some purposes only a
white rag will do.  Like cleaning the muddy tail splat marks left on the
white walls of my hallway by my BCs during the recent wet spell.  At
least that way any lint caught by the sandy texture will at least match
the paint.

But surely the lint could be dusted off or blown off the wall, thereby
creating cleaning opportunities for t-shirts of ALL colors, not merely the
favored white ones.

Why can't we all just get along?

The lint can be carded, and spun into yarn or thread.  At the very
least, it can be used for bandages.  Such waste!

Lint coming off old clothing like this is usually less than a quarter of
an inch long.  Crding and spinning such short fibres may be difficult.

Bandages should be lint free to avoid particles getting into wounds and
setting up infections.

You wrap the lint in gauze to make an absorbant pad.  Lint is also
useful for starting the charcoal bar-b-que.

As for difficulty, that doesn't seem to be a criteria for the OP and
some other posters.  Think of it as a "challenge."

That's why long-staple cotton is better and more expensive than short-staple
cotton.

OTOH, sterile lint might serve to strengthen a resulting scab.  Or at least
make it look like a hairy wart.

My mom saw a TV program about "The Lint Lady".  Apparently people send her
lint from all over the world and she uses it in art projects.  You'd think
we'd all have heard of her, wouldn't you?

Criterion.  "Criteria" is the plural of "criterion".  Not that I'm anal or
anything...

Wasn't Criterion a gladiator in ancient Rome?

No, (s)he was a racehorse.  Or a race.  Or something.

That's a bike race.  There's the "Criterion Stakes" for horses, but I'm also
almost positive that there was a famous horse by that name, although
googling for it found nothing.

water. . ."

Careful, you're getting awfully close to the frugal living newsgroup's
favorite snipe subject of how to reuse toilet paper.

What?  You mean frugal-living people don't use pages out of catalogues
and other junk mail?  I'm shocked!

Hmm.  I had never thought of it that way.  By the time it qualifies as a rag
most of our clothing has become one or more shades of gray.

My sister, living in a tiny fat in the middle of London, stores off
season clothing an the heavy weight duvet when not in use.  Her whole
flat is 12' by 18'.  She has a storage place in the basement.  Most of
what she seems to be storing down there are off season books!  She still
hs about 2000 in the flat.  No wonder she needs a smaller, lighter
sewing machine...

One of our daughters had a tiny apartment in Seattle.  She kept her
shoes in the oven.  She said that she never used that space, so why not?
