Waterproof Fire Starters




There are many ways to make fire starters that can help you make fire when the circumstances are not ideal, for example high humidity, wet branches etc.. They can burn for even 10-15 min depending on their size, which is more than enough to make a fire.

Step 1: The First Way

For the first type of fire starters you will need a candle, or a piece of wax and some sawdust. Cut the candle, put it in a can and place it on fire to melt the wax. When the wax is melted add sawdust. Put as much as possible sawdust to be able to make pieces as in the first photo. Use The wick of a candle to lit the fire starter easily. "Bake" the thing you made around the wick and you are ready to use your fire starter.

Step 2: The Second Way

You need a candle, matches, a napkin or a piece of paper or textile and a piece of thread. Wrap a napkin around a match, or around several of them, and tide it with the thread. Dip it in the melted wax, take it out, let it harden, and there you have it.

    When you are prepared for a fire, just place one in the centre of your fire ring along with kindling and lightweight and firewood the paper. The sparks you make must be able to burn your collections of kindling, when you utilise the emergency fire starter. Starting a fire has never been easier, with Flint Fire Starter kit. The fire starter is made out of magnesium, which is a flammable and cushioned element. Recently I bought this Waterproof Firestarter, The Ferro rod and which are both included in 1 fire starting kit and that fits conveniently in your pocket. I found this discount code. http://patriotdeal.com/collections/all/products/flint-firestarter Use this code "PD10"and save 10%.

    Works just like it should. Nice and cheap. Great spark. I use very little pressure when striking. I get a good spark and a successful light almost every time.

    Excellent ideas, simple,waterproof and ready at a moments notice. this is the sort of project that anyone could do and have a sucesseful chance at starting a fire. Well done, and thanks for the handy tips!

    Looks like a great idea, but first one looks like a piece of poo, and the second one looks like a dirty tampon.
