Introduction: Easy Match Waterproofing

About: I enjoy DIY and like sharing my ideas especially about survival.

Following I am going to show you an easy way to waterproof your matches. Keeping matches dry can be a challenge, but with my instrucatable it should be easy.

what you need:

matches

candle

WARNING: fire is dangerous and can kill people. do this project outside on a driveway or anywhere similair to that

Here goes......

Step 1: Lighting the Candle

Easy enough. Light your candle (make sure it is in a container) and wait. A while

Step 2: Water-proofing

After enough of your candle has become liquid, take your matches and dip the heads in the melted wax. After that, let the matches dry. I dipped mine 5 times.

Step 3: Testing

Next take your matches and dip them in water. Take them out, let them dry and scrape off the wax. It should light.
