Pill Bottle EDC Kit
I have also used vaseline impregnated dryer lint "balls" in the past as firestarters but have found that you have to be careful if your dryer lint contains too much synthetic fabric. Get too close to the fire fumes when you light this and you can get a wierd rush / head spin much like some of the fumes I breathed as a kid when playing down the basement with my junior chemistry set. (Whoa....what the hell was that?!?!?) I try and use cotton balls now as they are quite cheap and cotton does not emit anything toxic when burning. I have also hit my dentist up for handfuls of those cotton cylindars they often stick in your mouth when doing dental work. They are much denser that cotton balls and fluff up nice. mmuch olike
