Whenever I am baking, I take the margarine or butter wrapper, fold it, and put into a plastic Ziploc bag then into my freezer. That way I always have buttered paper on hand to grease my pans with.

I knew about the greasing but not about using them for firelighters. Great idea. Thanks for sharing.
Wow. Are they save to use in the fire?
I'm not so sure about the safety of using these in fires.
As for buttering casserole dishes or pans for cooking, I take a stick of butter and fold the wrapper back a little bit. Then I use the stick to butter the item. When I'm done, I re-wrap the stick and put it back in the freezer in a ziplock bag. The stick lasts a long time this way.
