    Product Description


    1.  At one end of the steel wool pull some fine strands out from the ball of steel wool.
    2.  Carefully lay a strand across the battery terminals.
    3.  Repeat with several strands to increase the burning time.

    The steel fibers burn quite well.  Use caution to not let the fire get out of control.
