Making Fire Starting Wafer Candles - Utah Preppers
The next project in my Light and Heat series is making Fire Starting Wafers out of reclaimed materials mostly available at home. These wafer candles don't have the same burn time (but it's plenty long enough to get a fire going) as the egg carton candles but they have a much smaller imprint. This project will again be familiar to most Boy Scouts and long term Preppers and Outdoorsmen. However, the purpose of this series is to get back to basics and review how to generate light and heat with common household projects.As has been mentioned in the comments on the other posts in this series, you can use old candles or other wax sources instead of the new bars of paraffin I use in the demonstration.
