    If you're a newspaper reader and you have a fireplace at home, you're gonna love this paper log briquette maker, which makes long-burning fuel bricks from old newspapers and other paper trash. Here's how it works: simply rip up waste paper, soak it in water overnight, then stuff the soggy pulp into the log maker and squeeze out any excess moisture. After letting the paper briquette dry out fully for a week or so, throw it in the fireplace and fire it up. Not only do the briquettes burn surprisingly well, they offer a great way to recycle, reduce your carbon footprint, and heat your home for free.
