What Is The Best Fire Starter In The World?

A cotton ball saturated with Vaseline is in my opinion the best man-made fire starting tinder in the world! Check this out, one cotton ball and vaseline burns for four mins or better… I have used cotton balls and vaseline in all types of conditions in various different places around the world and I have never had them fail.  Cotton balls and Vaseline are wonderful, effective, cheap and easy to make!

Check out this post where I dump a bottle of water all over already soaking wet kindling and still get it to go with just one cotton ball and vaseline as tinder!  http://www.realitysurvival.com/how-to-build-a-fire-with-wet-kindling/

  1. I was impressed with the fire starter tender. Non toxic and long life…..beat that!! The vasaline coated cotton balls can also be used for minor first aid, waterproofing, or lubrication. Multi purpose and compact….the perfect pack item. Thanks!

  2. LP, Yea I ave used them before, they do work well. Typically I usually break them up into smaller pieces, because you usually don’t need the whole thing for one fire. Even after the “Match head” is burn’t off you can still light them with a ferro rod easy enough.

    Thanks for the comments!

    Cheers

  3. Hey JJ – I never heard of a cotton ball and vaseline being used for anyting except first aid and personal care. As soon as I started to read the intro I saw how I’d missed the obvious for lot of decades. You sent me back to my friends at intergalacticshipping.com (doesn’t sound very woodsey does it) to look for a new survival knife. Your videos reminded me that my son had latched onto my hunting knife and my survival knife grew legs during a move.

  4. What a great tip. The savings will be immediate and the uses many.

    Thank you again!
