Using cotton balls and vaseline to build a fire

Using cotton balls and vaseline to build a fire
Rate This Article

In this video I discuss building a fire with cotton balls and vaseline. There are several things I learned from making this video. One – vaseline by itself does not burn. Second – do not coat the outside of the cotton ball with vaseline or else it will not burn. The sparks have to be able to reach the cotton fibers in order to start the fire.

Guys, if you use cotton balls that belong to your wife, be sure to ask permission first.
