While I was doing a campfire with my friend I found it difficult to lit the fire.So I thought of making an easy,portable and efficient fire starter.

Step 1: MATERIALS REQUIRED.

  • Some cotton.
  • Scissor.
  • A cardboard strip.
  • Matchsticks.
  • Used candle.
  • Any type of glue.
  • Spray can.(Not the empty one).
  • Clarified butter.

Step 2: PREPARING THE COTTON.

Cut the matchstick top part and put them in the cotton.Once it's done make the cotton round.

Step 3: MAKING THE BASE.

For the base first glue the matchsticks filled cotton on the cardboard strip.After that add 6-7 drops of clarified butter.

Step 4: PREPARING IT FOR BURNING.

We cannot burn it like that.So we need to roll the cardboard and paste it open end with glue.

Step 5: MAKING IT SUPER FLAMMABLE.

A fire starter should lit up fast and have high and powerful flames,so for that light up a candle and drop 15-20 drops of wax on top of it.Let it dry for 20-40 seconds than spray at it's bottom.

Step 6: WE ARE DONE.

Once it's done you can carry it in your pock and it can easily light up with a low flame candle.

<p>Thanks to everyone who voted for me and now we r in the finalist list waiting for the final results.</p>
<p>You could put all that in bathroom tissue roll also</p>
yes it will also work fine :)<br>
Almost forgot, pine tar is really great, just be careful not for fingers.
Great idea.<br>Another easy one for backyard fires is cottonballs dampened with coconut oil. They have a long burn, just one is enough to get a good fire started.
<p>yea it's little bit same I just added clarified butter instead of coconut oil :)</p>
<p>great man.. its awesome</p>
Voted for you!
<p>thanks :)</p>
Hi, My recipe for awesome fire starters! I'll never use chemicals again! All free found in my home: cardboard egg cartons (each egg cup is a fire starter), clothes dryer lint (totally free and super flammable), pine cones from your yard or old potpourri (stop hanging onto it!) hold each one together with a little wax (scraps from old candles, crayons, craft wax...melt in a disposable foil container!) they stay lit long enough to get your fire really going and they are free! Don't talk to me about burning lint...this is for outdoors...use obvious precautions and not around kids/pets. Enjoy backyard fires all year 'round!
That's really nice :(
sorry.... wrong emoji....<br>That's really nice :)
Nice!!! I made one earlier by rolling many layers of tissue paper, dripping them in rubbing alcohol, stuffing them inside a half cut can and lighting that. It was pretty long lasting and the fire burned for approx 90 mins. despite the harsh winds :D
<p>Ya that would also work fine but adding wax will increase it's burning time :)</p>
Yup :)
