Our primary source of heat these days is a wood burning stove. I have been meaning to make these since we moved and finally got around to it on Saturday. When Rowdy got up on Sunday morning and started the fire I asked him what he thought. He said "I am not sure if these are fire starters or bombs." I guess he thought they worked okay. The best part is these can be free or at the very least a lot cheaper than buying fire starters!
What you need:
- Paper egg cartons
- Dryer lint
- Old candles or Paraffin blocks from the store
- Coffee can
Place egg cartons on newspaper. Stuff egg cartons with lint. Dryer lint is highly flammable and really gets things cookin'. Melt your old candles or paraffin in a coffee can placed in a pot of simmering water. (Okay, so I don't use a coffee can. I use an applesauce can. Coffee from a can is wrong!) Once the wax has melted pour over the lint. Let dry. Cut apart into desired size. We use 4 egg slots for one fire.
