The Enviro-Log FireStarters are amazing. They work so quick. This past weekend I was clearing out another space in our backwoods area for a future chicken coop. There was a ton of brush and debris back there from years and years of previous owners using it as a dump site. I tried to start a fire 3 times, but the wind had picked up a little and some of the debris was wet and yuck and just didn't seem to want to catch at all. That's when I remembered the firestarters and decided to give them a try.
The Enviro-Log FireStarters I got came in a 24 count box with four rows of six. When you open the box and see how simply made they are it makes you wonder if they will really start a fire. They have a slight scent, but nothing overpowering and I could not smell it after it was lit.
Per there instructions you are supposed to assembly your firewood towards the center of where you want your fire, leaving enough room to place the FireStarter Cup underneath. You only need to use one and they recommend never using more than two at a time.Once you have the paper cup under your firewood, simply light the rim of the cup with a long match or safely with a lighter. The Enviro-Log FireStarter will burn for 20-30 minutes. They also warn to never add a firestarter cup to an already existing fire.
I took one of the FireStarter cups and lit the rim with a pocket lighter. It instantly took and even with the wind blowing it did not extinguish. I sat the paper cup on top of my pile of debris and garbage and then a couple boxes on top of that. The next thing I know the whole pile is flaming. I could not have been happier than I was at that moment. It saved me a lot of time and I wish I would have remembered them sooner and maybe I could have gotten more done. We continued cleaning up the area and the whole time I kept double checking the fire and it never went out. Once it lit and turned into flames, I had a nice fire the rest of the day to keep burning.
Safe to use in fireplaces, wood stoves, chimneys or campfires!
