    Did you use candle wax for the egg carton fire starters? I’ve seen paraffin wax used, but I only have candle wax. Thanks.

      Hi Jill, I think either kind of wax should work fine. Good luck with them.

    When I first looked at the picture it looked like a styrofoam egg carton and I thought ‘OH NO’. Then when I opened up the site I saw it was a cardboard egg carton. Have not seen those for years here at the Convent. I think it would be better to mention ‘carddboard egg carton’ NOT STYROFOAM’, because the fumes are VERY toxic. A lot of people don’t realize this. I see styrofoam pieces, especially drinking cups, left in fire pits a lot.

      Hi Sister Miriam,
      Definately only cardboard, in fact I haven’t seen a styrofoam egg carton since I was a kid…guess it just depends on where you live. I’ll edit the post with your suggestion. Thanks so much, and happy camping.

    This is nice except using egg cartons uses up precious space. Try putting them in a zip lock bag and squeezing the air out…you’ll get more in the bag than the egg carton.

    Candle wax is nice especially if you use the scented candles.

      Hi Kat,
      I guess it really just depends on where you live, we don’t have them where I live anymore.
      Best of luck with the fire starter.

    What we have done on some camping trips with a bunch of people, is make (sounds bad ) Barf in a Bag. these are omelets where each individual puts the egg and what ever other else you like such as Cheese, Onions, green onions, chunks of dry bread,Bacon bits, salt and pepper into a Ziplock Bag and then put the bag into boiling water and when cooked you just roll it out of the bag onto your plate, Great Fun
