Simply the most powerful and yet safest fire starter on the planet!!!
Since the dawn of time man has searched for an easier way to light a fire. Caveman banged rocks together, the natives rubbed sticks together, even the mountain man used flint and steel. So we didn't invent fire - we perfected it!
Instafire is a granulated all natural fire starter that can be used as a fire starter or a complete fuel to cook with or to heat your shelter. Depending on your conditions you can use just a little bit (1/8 cup) if your split wood is dry and smaller, but if you have really wet wood you would use around 1/2 cup. It works in harsh conditions such as rain, snow & wind in excess of 20-30 mph. Just put it under your wood allowing for oxygen to get to the fire. It lights similar to lighting a candle and then slowly builds in intensity. No more blowing on the fire or fanning it. Light it, wait 10-15 seconds and give it a light stir. It will be the easiest fire you will ever light - so don't fight the fire - light the fire!
Also use it for warmth and cooking in an emergency situation.
