This is all we use to start our fire in our wood burning stove!
Start by collecting;
Old or ugly candles
No. 10 tin can
old hot pad
Start off by stuffing all the holes in the egg carton with dryer lint. You will need quite a bit of lint, so start collecting it a few weeks ahead of time
Then you remove the no. 10 can from the water and carefully dry the bottom of the can.
Then carefully pour the hot wax into the egg carton cups.
You will probably drip a little, I usually do. So either put paper under the egg cartons or get your credit card ready to scrap off the drips.
I like to fill the cups until the list is soaked through. You don't need to have a pool of wax sitting on top of the lint.
Let them cool, cut the cups apart and there you go, 12 fire starters from one egg carton!
Usually I only need to use one fire starter to get the fire going.
