Posted:so, exactly how do you use this steal wool? I know what it is and it's normal purposes. However, how exactly would you use it to construct a wick. Also, wouldn't the fuel seap out of the wick very easily if it was made purely out of steal wool. Forgive my ignorance, I would just like to try it out sometime.
