Homemade Fire Starters

You'll Need: paper cups, 1 c. paraffin, melted, 1 1/2 cups sawdust, Q-tips -We recommend having a junky pot to make homemade recipes such as this, again, the dollar store often has pots and pans for $2-3 each. Melt the wax and add the sawdust, stirring well to thoroughly coat. Spoon it into the paper cup and shove a single q-tip into the center. Pour about 1 Tbs of additional melted wax over the top of each Q-tip "wick" if you want the wick to also be waterproof.
