This is a easy to make cheap fire starter that is safe and you should have everything you need at home. It will start a fire and last awhile. All you need is flour and lighter fluid, you can also use gas but I don't recommend it. If you get hurt its not on me...

Step 1: Flour

What you will need:

2. Lighter Fluid
3. Zip Lock Bag
4. Cup, Plate, or something to put mix in.

1. First, get one cup of flour and put it in a zip lock bag.

You could seal themin a plastic by ironing them in a plastic bag like in this video.they would definitely last longer.

How long does it burn. Also, what is it's shelf life? How long does it stay "fresh" before losing it's effectiveness?
