About: When I was six, my parents bought me a marble contraption set, and I have been building stuff since! I love to tinker, mess with, and just build stuff in my free time!

Intro: DIY Fire Starter

This fire starter can last up to 5 minutes and 24 seconds, with and averaged out 4 inch flame height for most of the burn but going up to a 5 inch flame height, it is perfect for scouting/campouts and is guaranteed to start your fire!!!

Step 1: Gather Your Materials

You will need cotton balls, vaseline, and toilet paper/paper towels.

Step 2: Apply the Vaseline

Grab your cotton balls and take one out of the bag, also, open the vaseline jar and pull some out on your finger. Spread the vaseline completely around the cotton ball.

Step 3: Wrapping the Cotton Ball

Grap two pieces of toilet paper and wrap the cotton ball with it, make sure to leave a little toilet paper hanging out so you can light the fire there.

    You just need to have a spark to go with it.

    I've tried this type of starter before it works really well. Thank you for the T.P. idea that solves my greasy storage dilemma.
