UPSIDE DOWN METHOD
Upside-down method feels incorrect, but it’s actually one of our favorite techniques for fireplaces and campfires. The setup is to place your larger logs at the bottom of your fire and smaller ones at the top. Lighting the kindling at the top is super easy and as it burns it ‘drips’ down onto the larger logs, whilst also creating a good upward draft for your chimney. It also prevents the larger logs from smothering the kindling as you light your fire.
TIP: If lighting your fireplace or woodstove with this method, it can help to crack a door or window to help the upward draft started in your chimney.
WHAT’S IT FOR? Fast, easy lighting resulting in less smoke entering the room.
