Snow/waterproof Firestarter

Introduction: Snow/waterproof Firestarter

I love life

This is a fairly simple project requiring only a few supplies and anyone can do it. This fire starter is waterproof snow proof and a it can light wet tender and small pieces of wood. It is also lightweight and fairly compact.

Step 1:

List of supplies 1 container of used candle wax 1 partial piece of an egg carton the paper kind and 1 double boiler

Step 2: Heat the Wax

This srep is very simple take the container of used wax and put it into a double boiler heating the wax until it becomes liquid

Step 3: Pour the Wax

Now poor the wax into the little cups of the egg carton and let it cool

Step 4: Fire Away

Now that the wax is cool we can test our awesome firestarter clip a cup off and light the edge of it. If you like this please try it and comment. This is also an entry for the outdoor contest(hint, hint).

    Fill cups with mixture of dryer lint and paper from cross cut paper shredder. Uses less wax and burns longer.

    I have used those and dryer lint the pine gets hot and the dryer lint burns longer. I will be making some combining both materials and post the results here in the comments

    I wonder if soaking something like pieces of pine tinder in the wax would expedite the process
