Why do they take longer to light than the firelogs I have been using?

  • Enviro-Log does not add any petroleum products to our firelogs to act as an accelerant. Most of your wax-sawdust type firelogs will have a strip of an added petroleum product to speed up the lighting. We recommend removing our firelog from the wrapper and using it as kindling to help with lighting or firelogs. Please follow our lighting instructions on our wrapper for safe and quick lighting of our firelogs.
