Undeniable Fact: Lint out of shape

Thursday, April 12, 2007

Quick! Grab a piece of paper and a ball of dryer lint, and set them down on a flat, nonmetal surface, so that the lint is more or less centered on top of the paper. Sprinkle a small amount of water on top and look closely. As the water dries, the lint fibers will stick to the paper. Now, take a small piece of plastic wrap and rub it in your hair or on some carpet to build up a static charge. Gently drag the plastic over the drier lint, covering it evenly while making sure not to disturb the lint. Look closely at the paper once again. That's how chap stick works.
