Easy Fire Starter

- Advertisement -spot_img

We have lived in our house for almost five years, and used the wood stove through the winter for all of those years. Somehow, I am still horrible at getting a fire going. But I think I’ve finally found the solution!

Of course, it is May, and it’s already hot so I don’t need this trick for my wood stove. It is still helpful for campfires, brush burning, or any other fire that needs to be set through the summer. 

This DIY fire starter is also super easy, and uses things most likely around your house already. It takes just a few minutes and provides quite a bit of fire starters.

Get a cardboard egg carton, dryer lint, and an old candle. Melt your candle down, I put mine in a pan of water and boiled it until it was all melted wax. Place your dryer lint in the carton and poke down in the holes. Drizzle the wax over the top. 

Break apart the egg carton and you have ready to light fire starters! If using a scented candle and cooking over the fire let burn until the wax is all gone to avoid any odd taste transfers.
