    very good... for emergency preparedness, make a few (not presoaked with fluid) in advance and store in a zip-top bag. but store the lighter fluid in a seperate bag. both in a bigger zip-top bag.

    or another variation is to "presoak" the tube with candle wax instead of the lighter fluid. (especially helpful/safer if you have curious smaller kids about.)
