    well you can use stoffa di jeans, but your stoffa will also burn. You wil have to replace your wick after every burn. Just try to get some stonewool, this will last 100x longer than your jeans.:mrgreen:

    Che fornello ad ALCOOL usi?

    Che fornello ad ALCOOL usi?

    I use a MYOG Carbonfelt stove. I think this picture explains why I like this stove so much. It is also possible to operate a carbonfelt-stove with a fuel line: Like that for stuff that needs longer cooking times.

    Il degrado del sud Italia
