InstaFire fire starter is optimal for starting campfires, wood-burning stoves, outdoor fire pits and indoor fireplaces. This set of eight individual packs of fire starter contains no harmful chemicals or vapors-just recycled wood pellets, volcanic rock and a patented blend of food-grade paraffin wax. Each pack of InstaFire fire starter will light up to four fires in all types of weather, including 30 mile-per-hour winds, rain and even snow. Place the contents of a pack of InstaFire fire starter under your wood, and light the fire starter with a match or lighter for a hot, even flame without flare-ups. InstaFire fire starter burns at nearly one-thousand degrees-hot enough to light wet wood. Besides being nontoxic, the leftover ash is a natural fertilizer that will nourish the earth. The fire starter is not a combustible fuel that can explode spontaneously. It is safe to store indoors or outdoors, even near food and won’t cause any conflicts with local flammable storage ordinances. With a 30-year shelf life, you can always have some InstaFire fire starter on hand for recreational purposes or as part of your emergency-preparedness plan. Use it anywhere you need a quick light: at the campsite for fun, warmth, or to power an outdoor grill; while hunting in the wilderness; in an indoor fireplace or outdoor fire pit; at an RV park; or in an emergency situation where you need heat. The product is made in the USA by Insta-Fire, Inc. It is safe, simple and versatile.
