Easy-To-Make Fire Starters

While getting ready to leave this morning, my wife asked me to change out the scent cube in the wax burner.  Having never done this task before I asked her how she does it.

In response she brought some cotton swab circles to the living room and said just put these in there to soak up the old wax.  Throw them away and then put the new cube in to melt.

I pulled a couple of these cotton rounds out of the package and proceeded to follow her instructions when it dawned on me that once they cool off these little honey-do remnants would become perfect fire starters!

After pulling them out of the wax I proceeded to place them on a paper plate to dry.  From there I  placed them in a plastic bag to store until they are needed.

The above picture is what they look like as they are drying.  I had to flip them over a few times to keep them from sticking to the plate, but it was worth the effort.

The next time your wife asks you to change out the scent cube in her wax burner, remember to grab the cotton rounds and add some fire starters to your preps.

- A prep a day can keep ill fate away.
