Details

Safe Lite Fire Starter squares are the safe, clean-burning solid fuel alternative to liquid charcoal fire starters. Environmentally sensible and economical, these squares light quickly and easily and burn 8-12 minutes- even when wet! Use for charcoal, grills, fireplaces, wood and pellet stoves, even campfires. Safe Lite Fire Starter squares are non-explosive, non-toxic (will not flavor food), and produce no dangerous flare-ups. 

Compressed wood chip and wax based squares contain 10% recycled wood and paper fiber. Take some along when hiking or hunting for an emergency fire. Just break off a square or two, stand on edge and place dry wood or charcoal briquettes on top. Touch a lighted match to the rough edge to start instantly. Contains 144 Squares.

  • Ideal for camping, grills, stoves and fireplaces
  • Ignites instantly, even when wet
  • Burns 8-10 minutes

Editors Note: These fire starters are one of the best we have used. I have personally used them for over 15 years to start my wood stove and camp fires. Great for starting charcoal fires too!

These work!

I use one or two of these to start a fire. They work every time. The liquid fire starters work too but are messy and bulky and not as safe. These are easy to store and handle. I can break up a weeks worth and put them in a nice little box right by the fireplace.

I used to have to get my bonfire started by pouring gas on the wood as I could never get the kindling to start however I bought a box of these to try and I was so impressed that I came back and bought a big box to have to take camping as well as to have for our weekend bonfires. No more waiting on the husband to get home to start the bonfire. I also sent some to my mom for her fireplace and she is wanting more now.

Prior to this purchase, we had been using another brand of starter and were satisfied with their performance. The availability of the product was unreliable. We tried Safe Lite starters and found them to be superior to our former product and absolutely no availability problems at all as Northline delivers to my door. We will use this product from now on as we heat solely with wood.

This is an excellent product. Here in the Great White North we heat about 90 percent with wood. These fire starters almost always start the fire with a minimum of muss and fuss.
