    I layer the product in my compost bins and it really helps the piles of dry and wet matter heat up in a hurry. I have been using the compost start for many years.

        Comments about Super Hot® Compost Starter:

        I added this to the first batch of leaves, grass clippings and kitchen scraps in our new Dual Batch Compost Tumbler. It got things going in just a few days. I continue to add a cup or so every few weeks as I add additional material to the tumbler. I love the fact that the next day I can feel the heat coming from the bin. Especially good for me as I'm never sure if I have a good mix of ingredients. This product takes away some of the guess work and gets my tumbler "cooking"!

            Comments about Super Hot® Compost Starter:

            I have several indoor compost containers during the winter ~ in part I use them to help keep my room temperature slightly higher... I heat with candles, so every little bit of background heat helps.

            But, come spring my compost is often not entirely composted, most likely due to my room's cold overpowering the compost's heating up capacity.

            Super Hot Compost Starter completely COMPLETELY changed all that. I got the most beautiful compost, everything composted. And, I didn't use all that much.

              The compost starter seems to be working well. The compost bin is actually doing its job.

                  Great product I've been using for years. It gives my pile that extra boost it sometimes needs to get things cooking. For example the temp of my pile was ~ 65 degrees a week ago as I added this fall's leaves and the last of the grass cuttings interspersed with some cardboard and, of course, Super Hot Compost Starter. The temp is currently 125 degrees! That's what I'm talking about
