Zip Fast & Clean Wrapped Firelighters

Fast & Clean
Fast & Clean

These highly effective, Zip Wrapped firelighters are formulated to light even the most difficult fuels. They are clean, odourless and burn for up to 18 minutes, providing a convenient and reliable method of instantly lighting a fire. Simply ignite the ignition wrapper and the cube will light first time. 

This premium Zip firelighter takes all the hassle out of lighting the fire, meaning you have more time to relax and enjoy your fire.

The Zip Wrapped firelighters are also ideal for lighting your barbecues. Don’t worry they will not taint the food, as by the time you come to cook, the firelighters will have burnt through and reliably lit your fuel to ensure an authentic barbecue taste.

Preparation and Usage

Indoor / Outdoor Fires

  • Place 1 or 2 Zip™ wrapped firelighters on your coal, logs, briquettes or a thin layer of cinders. For hard to light fuels use more firelighters as required.
  • Using limited draught, light the Zip™ wrapper at one corner (Zip™ recommends long safety matches).
  • When the firelighters are well lit, carefully add more fuel taking care not to extinguish the flames.
