Have you ever wanted to make your own Vaseline and cotton ball fire-starters but don’t want your hands to look like a mess after coating just one? Then you’re in luck because you can easily make your own Vaseline-impregnated fire-starters with ease. Here’s how in roughly four steps:
It’s really easy, here’s how:
- Gather your supplies. A bottle of Vaseline, a handful of cotton balls, and a small bag. Any small Ziploc bag will suffice but I used small bags similar to these since I have plenty for some unknown reason.
- Invert the bag so that the outside is now inside and the inside is outside… you get the idea. Dip your fingers in the Vaseline and gather up a decent amount. Now, invite your buddy over for a prostate exam. 😉
- Return the bag to it’s original, upright position… no, wait, that’s an airplane tray table. Just flip the bag back the way it’s supposed to be and try not to make a mess, insert the cotton balls, shove them to the bottom, and begin slathering away. It’ll take a little bit of effort to roughly coat the cotton balls but, hey, what else were you going to do after reading this?
- Once you’re satisfied every last fiber has been coated go ahead and expel as much as air you can then roll it up, sealing the bag when finished.
Well, that’s it folks. You’ve just made some high-quality Vaseline-impregnated fire-starters without making a mess! Now go light something on fire. 😉
