Now lighting a fire is as easy as striking a single match with EZ Fire Firestarter, the top-lighting firestarter. It works like this: Simply stack split logs, place a single unopened packet of EZ Fire ON TOP, light a couple of corners and sit back. It's that easy! Using the packet as a wick, EZ Fire slowly melts and cascades down carrying the flames to lower logs or charcoal and giving you a reliable start every time. EZ Fire won't flash or flare and can't explode. It is safe to store virtually anywhere, is waterproof, and has an indefinite shelf life. EZ Fire is environmentally friendly, as it consists of all naturally occurring, sustainable ingredients.
