To use fuels more safely:

  • do not let the fuel touch your skin or drip anywhere. If it does, wash it off right away.
  • keep anything that can burn away from the stove. This will prevent fires from spreading and causing great damage. Store extra fuel in a safe place away from where you cook (and do not use matches or cigarettes nearby).
  • put the stove where air can move freely around it.
  • always be careful when lighting the stove.
