Uses for fores?

Post by decomissioned » Fri Oct 08, 2010 12:20 pm

Saw this article today for uses for vodka. The article is a little girly, but some good info. Could you dilute your fores and use them like this? I don't have much use for lighter fluid,.. I'm trying to find some use for them.

I add some to my window washing liquid that I make with vinegar, water and rubbing alcohol. It's great to get any soot build up on my wood burner's glass door. We also use this mixture as a more or less general cleaner. bd.

Yeah BD, great for glass, the oven, general cleaning and the lawnmower...
Apart from the mower, we always dilute to half the strength...

Thanks for the article man... Interesting...

I save mine up for cleaning runs after a build.. I try to keep at least 1 gallon on hand... other than that is a great fire starter at the campground...

if you charr your own oak for aging. Fores work great for that. Just soak, and burn.

The fores burn off in a second and you can tell when the wood starts to burn by the flame color.
If you put your wood to char in a paint can and then cap as the flame changes color.
The oxygen loss will snuff the fire and mellow your wood in the smoke.

Daddy taught me this but we used a small steel galvanized trash can.
