      Best Uses

      • Best used with some lint

      Comments about Light My Fire Mayadust Fire Starter:

      I had a real hard time starting this stuff up, even with their matching starter, and It was even harder to keep it in place, while trying to aim the sparks. This stuff is best used a coarser tinder, once you get a flame started, once on fire, it's fine.

          When you try to use it is hard to keep in a pile and does not light as well as dryer lint.

          overrated

          By Elijah

          from Reno nv

          Pros

          • Cool container

          Cons

          • Doesn't work

          Best Uses

          • Save the container

          Comments about Light My Fire Mayadust Fire Starter:

          This is supposedly ground up pitchwood, so I expected it to be more flammable. Used more than half the tin to light a fire! While I still use the container, I now use dryer lint dribbled with a little candle wax as tinder.
