Homemade fire starters
As part of our journey to self sufficiency we made fire starters. These will be great for camping or just bon-fire starting.
- egg cartons
- dryer lint
- candle wax
- wood chips
We received 2 black garbage bags FULL of wood chips….I wouldn’t purchase these otherwise. The fire-starters are fine with just the lint, which I have an abundance of.
For candle wax I just purchased a used candle from a thrift store and melted it down.
melted down with my canning pot because I don’t have
a double boiler.
We will cut apart sections as we need them
with the left over wax we water proofed some matches
just dip the tips in and you’re good.
I bought the matches at the Dollar Store
