    Can someone explain step-by-step, how to light a Coleman lantern? Or know of a link that might explain it?

    Thank you for your help. DH kept insisting he knew what he was doing but it didn't seem to be working. I didn't want him to get hurt.

    My DH is like that too. Most likely he would light it, blow it up, then read the instructions!! :rolleyes:

    Thanks for posting those websites. I have a different brand lantern, but it looks like it would help me learn how to clean mine too.
