How does it Work?
There are a few different designs of paper log briquette makers out there, but they all work in pretty much the same way. Soak waste paper (shredded newspaper and other papers, cardboard) and/or wood chippings / sawdust in water over night. The soggy pulp created can then be put into the log maker and the handles squeezed to remove all of the moisture. Leave the paper briquette to dry out fully (for a week or two), and then throw it in the fireplace.
Well compressed paper log briquettes will burn well for a couple of hours and leave behind very little ash. They can also be lit easily without the need for chemical fire-lighters.
