There's nothing quite like the warmth and ambiance of a bonfire. And when it comes to backyard fires, Solo Stove is one of the most popular options for creating a cozy and efficient fire. But as much fun as it is to sit around a Solo Stove bonfire, it's important to know how to put it out properly. In this blog post, we'll go over the best way to put out a Solo Stove bonfire to ensure safety and proper care of your equipment.
The best way to put out a Solo Stove bonfire is to let it burn down completely. This means allowing the fire to burn through all the wood and coals until there's nothing left but ash. It's important to note that you should never leave a fire unattended, especially when it's burning down. You should always keep an eye on the fire and make sure it's contained within the Solo Stove.
Once the fire has burned down completely, it can take several hours for the Solo Stove to cool down completely. It's important to not touch or move the stove until it has cooled down to avoid burns or damage to the stove. It's also a good idea to keep any pets or children away from the stove until it has cooled down completely.
The Solo Stove Shield is an accessory that can be used to prevent sparks and embers from flying out of the stove. It's important to keep the shield in place while the fire is burning to prevent any accidents. Once the fire has burned down completely, you can remove the shield and let the stove cool down.
The Solo Stove lid and cover can be used to extinguish the fire and protect the stove from the elements. If you need to put out the fire before it has burned down completely, you can use the lid and cover to suffocate the fire. Simply place the lid on top of the stove and then place the cover over the top of the stove. This will cut off the oxygen supply to the fire and extinguish it. It's important to note that you should never leave the stove unattended while the lid and cover are in place.
You should never use water to put out a Solo Stove bonfire. The extreme heat of the fire can cause the water to boil rapidly, which can create steam and hot ash that can be dangerous. Additionally, pouring water on the fire can damage the stove and cause it to crack or break.
Using sand to put out a Solo Stove bonfire can be an effective way to extinguish the fire. Simply pour sand over the fire and let it smother the flames. It's important to note that you should never use wet sand, as this can create steam and hot ash that can be dangerous.
Once the fire has burned down and the stove has cooled down, you can use a coal shovel to remove any remaining coals and embers. It's important to remove these from the stove to prevent any potential fire hazards. You can dispose of the coals and embers in a metal container that is specifically designed for ash and embers.
In conclusion, the best way to put out a Solo Stove bonfire is to let it burn down completely and then let the stove cool down for several hours. Using the Solo Stove lid and cover to suffocate the flames is a good alternative if you need to put out the fire before it has burned down completely. Remember to always keep an eye on the fire and keep it contained within the Solo Stove, and never leave it unattended. By following these guidelines, you can ensure the safety of yourself, your family, and your equipment.
