The carton does more to hold the mixture till it dries than to contribute to the burn process.  Styrofoam would work but would not contribute to the burn and could give off toxic gasses...so use this one only in the great outdoors.  I like the handy individualization of the burning components.  When I would go out for a two day hike, I would take two or three of these to expedite the small campfire.

"I am sure you have heard of the egg carton, dryer lint and paraffin. "

This reminds me of when I told a group of otherwise intelligent people that the grey egg cartons were actually made from recycled dryer lint and  this is why I always buy eggs in those cartons instead of styrofoam!. They all believed me with one of them going on to pass along this tidbit to a group of 5th grade students!

I am sure you have heard of the egg carton, dryer lint and paraffin.  Place a quantity of dryer lint in each egg carton section.  I would say about 3/4 full each.  Then take melted paraffin and pour over the lint in each compartment to the top. Let it dry and cut apart the carton to have a dozen fire starters.

don't do it near a smoke detector!

Comment by Chris North on January 24, 2015 at 11:51

Yep! Works well, but I think the key is to get the paper wrapper to burn. Kind of stinks though.

Got me curious... be right back...
