How to make your very own waterproof dryer lint fire-starter, for free.
Using only household items you can make a 1 oz waterproof fire-starter that burns for 15 minutes. It's perfect for camping, backpacking, or even your backyard fire pit. No need to buy fancy fire starter logs, here you'll need to gather a few household items that would have otherwise been thrown in trash.
Step 1: Step 1 - Gather Materials
First, gather a few materials from around the house.
1. Dryer lint
2. An empty egg carton
3. Old Candle Stubs (or in my case, a box of canning wax - $3*)
4. Dental floss
6. New Belgium beer (not required, but hey, that's how it happened)
