Fire starters are perfect for rainy camps, emergency kits and getting fires going in a hurry. We’re going camping this summer, so I thought I’d get a jump start on preparations. This project is also a great way to recycle things that would normally get thrown out.

Instructions for Fire Starters
I may have been a little skimpy with the dryer lint because I didn’t have that much. First, you stuff each compartment full of lint and then you melt the wax. Leftover wax is good if you have it. Sawdust is also effective in place of dryer lint.
Unfortunately, this does happen. The lid of the egg carton works well for this. Finally, wait for it to harden and break the fire starters off as you need them.
If you have any bits of leftover wax that you don’t know what to do with, you should try it too!
