These firelighters are made solely from sawdust and vegetable oil compressed together and compacted into 28-piece blocks. These work as good as the traditional fire lighters without the smell of the lighting fluid or paraffin, and as such as perfect for both open fires and especially cooking as there are no chemical aromas.
Along with rows of sun cream, inflatable pool toys, and seedlings, another familiar garden sight is lighter fluid. The unmistakable puffs of smoke are a hallmark of good weather. Grilling, eating, and enjoying the outdoors is always a welcome pastime. However, more people are choosing to light their fires in a non-toxic and safer way.
Eco firelighters are the responsible choice for those answering the call of the great outdoors. They’re also the choice for those wanting a cosy indoor fire or BBQ without the smell and risk of traditional firelighters.
Traditional firelighters often rely on paraffin or lighter fluid. They require special care and must be stored in safe locations – well away from inquisitive children or pets. Paraffin can also irritate the lungs. There is a risk for those with asthma as well as children and the elderly. Not only is it an irritant, it is a possible carcinogen if used for long periods of time.
Lighter fluid poses a danger to the environment and humans too and can poison man’s best friend. Lighter fluid contains hydrocarbons including butane, propane, and naphtha to name a few. These hydrocarbons, when inhaled, can cause serious damage to the throat as well as minor issues like a headache or irritability.
It is good to know that better options exist.
