From time to time we recommend you wipe off your Looft Lighter with a damp cloth. Do not use detergents.
The Looft Lighter should be stored inside in a dry environment.
Pull Back a Bit
Remember to pull back the Looft Lighter from the charcoal or logs when sparks or glow appear. The heat shield is made of aluminum (to prevent severe burn damages and setting fire to nearby objects) and can melt if kept in the glow for too long. Also, if you pull away a few inches, the glow will spread even quicker.
