        IF YOU CARE® 100% Biomass Petroleum-Free Firelighters

        If You Care 100% Biomass Firelighters contain two ingredients only: FSC wood and non-GMO vegetable oil. Simple as that. Use these environmentally friendly fire starting cubes for fireplaces, BBQ grills, wood burning stoves/ovens and campfires/outdoor fire pits.

        Our firelighters are:

        • Extremely stable, have a long shelf life, do not lose firepower or dry out when left open
        • Not oily or greasy
        • Have no unpleasant smells
        • Non explosive and non toxic, and can be stored safely near or with food.
        • Harmless when in contact with plants, vegetation or aquatic organisms.

        No Petroleum Products

        Some firelighters contain kerosene and /or paraffin or paraffin wax, all derived from petroleum, and therefore based on fossil fuels. With the combustion of some firelighters, formaldehyde- a substance which has been classified as a human carcinogen by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) and as a probable human carcinogen by the U.S Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) – may be released. If You Care 100% Biomass Firelighters are 100% from renewable resources and are non-toxic.

        Carbon Neutral Emissions

        Because If You Care Firelighters are made 100% from biomass- wood and vegetable oil- the emission resulting from their combustion are considered carbon neutral. This is due to the fact that the CO2 emitted from the combustion of biomass is offset by reduction of CO2 in the atmosphere as a result of new biomass growth. This is in accordance with guidelines by the EPA as well as the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). The same cannot be said for firelighters using petroleum products, such as kerosene, paraffin wax or slack wax.

        If You Care 100% Biomass Firelighters come in 2 sizes – 72ct bag and 28ct tablet.

        HOW TO USE

        If You Care Firelighters are quick and easy to use, just follow these simple steps:

        1. Open Bag.
        2. Place 3-4 If You Care Firelighters under wood or on top of charcoal.
        3. Light each Firelighter on the fractured side of the cube. Cube burns for 8-10 minutes with the first 5 minutes producing the strongest flame.

        IF YOU CARE® 100% Natural Sponge Cloths

        If You Care Sponge Cloths are made in a patented process from a three dimensional blending of cellulose, non-GMO unbleached cotton and mirabilite – a natural mineral salt. During the production process, the mirabilite is washed out, leaving the remaining blend (70% cellulose & 30% cotton) extremely porous, which makes the sponge cloth extraordinarily absorbent. It can absorb up to 20 times its own weight in water.

        CLEANING

        There is no better or more effective cleaning cloth for kitchens, countertops, bathrooms and general household cleaning, available anywhere. If You Care Sponge Cloths leave no streaks. They absorb liquids easily and quickly and release them with simple wringing. They are remarkably durable, tear and abrasion resistant, reusable over and over again, and can be machine washed in water up to 1900F (880C), up to 300 times.

        THE ENVIRONMENT

        If You Care Sponge Cloths and their packaging are made from 100% renewable resources and contain no petroleum or other fossil fuel products. Each cloth is reusable and washable many times. These sponge cloths reduce waste and the amount of material going to landfill. The packaging is a biopolymer made from corn starch which is certified compostable in commercial composting facilities, leading to a further reduction in waste, greenhouse gasses and diversion from landfill.

        USE & CARE

        Rinse cloth and wring out excess water to increase absorbency. Use with water, soap and water, or any household cleaner. After using, rinse thoroughly, wring out water, and leave flat to dry. Cloth can be washed at temperatures up to 1900F (880C) in dishwasher or washing machine with normal loads. Do not use chlorine bleach or chlorine products. After washing, leave to air dry. Do not tumble dry.

        Did you know that both If You Care Sponge Cloths and their packaging are certified compostable? Throw them in your compost bin after use. No need to separate!
