There is nothing worse than a hotdog that tastes like lighter fluid. Starting a fire without it though can be a struggle, especially if you didn’t bring your own kindling, and who has room for that in the already loaded down car. Newspaper works, ish, but is a pain to deal with…what’s a savvy camper to do? Make your own DIY Fire Starters to get your campfire blazing the free and easy way!
- Egg Carton
- Dryer Lint
Take pieces of dryer lint and fill each compartment of the egg carton. Light your candle and let it burn for a bit. If you don’t have a match light a piece of dry spaghetti off the stove burner…this works great for candles in holders that make them hard to light as well.
Drizzle melted wax over lint, be sure to cover the top enough to make the lint stick together.
Simply pack the egg carton full of fire starters on your next camping trip. Pop a few out, nestle them around in your fire pit or grill and light them and *drum roll please* you have fire!
