    Would it also help to use fatwood shavings as another layer of incendiary goodness?

    I used to make fire-starter with wood shavings & wax, but used an egg carton to hold the materials. I put the shavings in the egg cups, poured the melted wax on top of the shavings & let it set up. Then I’d grab an egg cup to start the fire. I used the wax that you buy at the grocery store for canning. I’m just getting back into camping….

  3. Here’s another, easier firestarter that I came across years ago – cotton balls + vaseline! You “mush” vaseline into the cotton ball, that simple. Each will burn like a candle, long enough to get a fire going. I carry a bunch in a little zip lock bag.

    cotton balls wiped in vaseline and then dripped with candle wax also work VERY well
