Preparedness Tip Wednesday: DIY Fire Starter Wafers

DIY Fire Starter Wafers


This tip I found on Pinterest and it was such a great idea that I wanted to share it with our blog readers.

All you need is:
Cotton pads
A used candle
A pan you don't mind melting wax in (or a microwave safe container from the $1 store)


For the full tutorial go to

NOTE: I have seen may great home made fire starters using dryer lint and cardboard egg cartons which is also a great essentially free thing to make. I just like the cotton pads due to the size and since they are flat they can fit anywhere. It is great to add to your 72 hour kit and for taking camping.
