Worlds Best Pocket-Sized Fire Starter

Step 2: Step 1

The first thing you need to do is take your cotton rounds, the plastic knife and the petroleum jelly, and use them to smear the jelly on ONE side of the cotton rounds. I normally only use two of the cotton rounds, but three is what you should aim for.

*Note: while you can use up to five, it is not recommended because the jellied cotton rounds will, after a certain amount, become to dense and slow down the rate of their burning, and, sometimes even smother themselves.
