Survival Match, Make a Match Last Longer




About: Hunting,fishing,tracking,technology, video-games,camo,weapons,and trapping.

Step 1: What You Need

All you need is
•A straw.(with the paper still on or it won't last as long)
•Something to start a fire.(it really doesn't matter what you use, I used a lighter.)

Step 2: How to Do It

All you have to do is light the end of the straw and angle it where it's not burning your hand, duh, and where you aren't holding it level.
BOOM, you just made a common item make your match or other fire starters last up to 2 minutes longer, but it works best if it still has the paper wrapper on it.

    If I am to need a fire starter and I have a lighter..... why would I then proceed to light a straw on fire? Maybe no one else has told you but your Instrutables suck. You really need to put a little more effort into them.
