How To Use A Spoon For Tinder
This is a quick Urban Survival Tip showing how to use a spoon or fork or spork or pretty much any other plastic item that can be shaved in order to use as a fire starting tinder. In an Urban environment stuff like this is usually very easily found and used in stead of using other items that may not be as readily available. All you have to do to make shavings with a piece of plastic is scrape your knife at 90 degrees to a hard part of the plastic item and scrape downwards. You will end up with very fine shavings that will take a spark or flame and ignite easily. If you make a big enough pile this will burn plenty long enough to get a fire going. Also since it is plastic it can also work well in a wet or damp environment as well.
