Introduction: How to Make a Cotton Ball Fire Starter

This is a very useful fire starter that you can use on camping trips, in your fire at home, or anywhere you choose!  They will burn from 2-3 minutes depending how much Vaseline you put on and the size of your cotton ball.

Step 1: Gather Materials

You will need:
1 cotton ball (per fire starter)
Some Vaseline
A small zip lock bag (to hold finished ones)
A paper towel (to clean up)

Step 2: Soak Cotton Ball

Get a good amount of Vaseline on your fingertip and spread in though out the cotton ball.  Do this until there is only a small portion of it that is not covered (the part you are holding).  Do not put the cotton ball directly in the container because it will come apart.

Step 3: Enclose in Plastic Bag

Now make as many as you want!  Put them in a plastic bag.  It is a good idea that when you use them you spread a little more vaseline on them because some of it will stick in the bag.
