Homemade Fire Starter

1 cup melted paraffin

1 cup sawdust

12" jute twine

1) Carefully melt paraffin wax (paraffin is commonly used for canning food in jars).

2) Mix 1 cup melted paraffin with 1 cup sawdust (strangely this creates only 1 cup of fire starter mixture but that is perfect for one Something mold)

3) Before it hardens, place a piece of jute twine in for a wick to help light the starter.

Note: In a pinch, you can use dryer lint instead of sawdust!
