Resources

Metal bowl or tray
2kg Salt
1/2 litre methylated spirits

Instructions

Fill the metal bowl or tray with the salt and soak with the methylated spirits.
Stand the tray on some bricks (or other heatproof base) in a well ventilated area and light with a match.
It will burn for approximately 45 minutes.
The fumes tend to be quite strong when it stops burning - you may want to carry it outside (carefully with an oven mitt or similar)
