If you have a fire pit or maybe you are social distancing on a camping trip, you can help start a fire with this homemade firestarter.

Waxed Paper & Dyer lint

Did you know that Waxed paper burns fantastic on its own?   But if you also wrap-up dryer lint or sawdust on paper, twisting both ends of the paper to hold the contents it will burn even better.  

 

Chips

Crazy as it seems and you may not want to eat another chip. The greasier the better when choosing which snacking chip will burn the best.  

 

COTTON BALL AND PETROLEUM JELLY

A typical cotton ball slathered in petroleum jelly burns strong for about four minutes.
