How to Light a Fire with Kindling & Waxlings
Waxlings are made of shavings and wax to create an environmentally friendly option
compared to traditional firelighters that are made using paraffin wax and smell.
Using one Waxling break it open into the stove or fire place by twisting it in both directions.
Place one kiln dried silver birch log on top with the bark facing down.
Once the flu is warm and the log is properly alight another log can be place on top with the bark facing down. Leave the door for another few minutes on the latch to let the second log get alight then close the door.
Take 6 – 8 Dry sticks of kindliing and build a tower around the waxling fire lighter.
Light the waxling and close the door leaving it very slightly open. Some stoves have a provision to leave the door on a latch allowing more air to pass into the chamber whilst the fire gets started.
IMPORTANT POINTS TO REMEMBER!
Please note with wood the fire burns from the top, you do not need to have any air circulating from underneath the wood. The top air control is all that will be required once the fire is alight.
Do not over fill the stove with wood, it will not burn any hotter with more logs on, at least 50% of the space in the stove needs to be empty to allow proper combustion of the gases generated from heating the wood up.
