Starting a fire is really hard, well at least for me it is and I don’t like the idea of using lighter fluid. These fire starters are a great use for things you would normally just throw away or recycle and you only need 2 ingredients. Toilet paper or paper towel rolls and lint. Lint is a great fire started since it is a big reason for dryer fires and why it is soooo important to clean out your lint catcher after every use (my dad is a fireman I heard this a lot). I have also seen this done with cardboard egg cartons, lint, and a little bit melted wax poured over. There a great tutorial for this recipe here. Honestly I like to do the easies thing possible! So here it is!
Frugal Fire Starter
1 paper towel or toilet paper roll
Directions: stuff the lint into the cardboard tube. All done!
To use: place underneath longs in fireplace or fire pit. Carefully light fire starter at cardboard . Always be very careful when working with fire!
