I found this lovely video tutorial I wanted to share. We’ve had a common problem at home to get a fire started in our fireplace, quickly, without lighter fluid. I’ve wanted to find a more natural way to get a fire started rather then using lighter fluid. Watch the video link. This uses items we had around our house already, paper egg cartons, dryer lint, and candle wax.
I modified this tutorial slightly. We have a candle warmer, so I used this instead of boiling the wax on the stove.
I think I’m going to use these fire starters as a a part of Christmas gift baskets for friends of mine that like to go camping or have a fireplace.
