Homemade Fire Starters

Homemade Fire Starters

These work great and you only need 1 or 2. I love to use these in my wood stove.

Dryer Lint (yes dryer lint!)
old candles or leftover wax from candles
container, pot or boil to melt wax
cardboard egg carton

Fill each egg cup with dryer lint. I put wax in an old coffee can and set in a pot of water until it melts.When melted pour wax over egg cups. Let dry. Cut apart into individual starters and store in a container or ziploc bag. Take out 1 or 2 as needed as use as you would a store bought fire starter.
