I put a hand full of pine straw in and light it, then puff until the whole thing is on fire/ glowing red. When the fire burns out I tap it with my hive tool. You can also buy a 4" wire wheel for a drill and stick it down in, the wire wheel also works good for cleaning the wax off the bellows and polishing your hive tool.
