Waxy Fire Starters
Make your own fire starters! This is a wonderful way to use some old candles up, and it is very easy to do and it works very well.
- mason jar
- old candles
- small cooking pot
- popsicle sticks
- shredded newspaper
- paper cups
First find some old candles that are either no longer being used or have melted down into a mess. Next put them in a glass mason jar and set it in a small cooking pot. Now put 1 1/2 cups of water in the pan. Then put the pan on high on the stove and let the water boil around the mason jar. While the water boils and melts the wax stuff the paper cups with as much shredded newspaper as possible. Once the wax has COMPLETLY melted pour the wax into the paper cups that had been stuffed with newspaper. Next use a popsicle stick to push any of the newspaper that had popped out of the wax back under the wax. Let the wax harden and now you have an awesome fire starter!
