Our journey in building the homestead of our dreams.

Looking for a good way to get a fire going without using gasoline and use up some junk you have laying around the house? Of course you are. Grab an empty cardboard egg crate. Add a piece of dryer lint to each compartment. Then add a stick, a dry leaf, maybe some saw dust depending on what you have. Drizzle whatever wax you have from candles that burned out over the tops of this little pile you have created. That's it, homemade firestarters. When you are ready to start a fire, break off an egg compartment
or two if it's a big fire. Light the starter and put it into the kindling you have ready to burn. It should start right up very nicely. These are safe to use for your grill or for an indoor fireplace because you made them up without any chemicals at all. Happy burning!
