Newsprint: Daily Woodpile

1. Divide the day’s paper into two or three sections.

2. Fold paper over to 1/2 page size, about 12 to 15 inches wide, and 1/2 inch or less thick.

3. Soak overnight in a solution of 1 gallon of water mixed with 1 tablespoon liquid detergent.

4. Roll dripping wet sections individually on a chrome rod that is 3/4 to 1 inch in diameter.

5. Squeeze out excess water; smooth surface edges in.

6. Slide paper roll off rod and stand on end to dry. Tip rolls slightly to let air circulate. Rolls should be about 12 inches long and 2 to 4 inches in diameter.

7. When completely dry (drying can take as much as two weeks), stack and use like wood.
