Hey guys. I can start a fire just fine, but thats always been in a fireplace. I always used newspaper and some kindling and that was that. I do however also use junk mail, paper bags, anything paper and non colored that can burn. I use the cardboard paper towel things, pallet wood, and one thing I found that works really well is the shredded paper from my office paper shredder. Are the above things ok to use as I move from fireplace to wood burning stove or do I need to fine tune my list? I think I will try and make my own wax firestarters with sawdust this year too if thats a good way to do it? I wonder about the wax creating any problems. Thanks!
