Fire Starter Aids

Fire Starters and Helpers

Burning stuff is fun, so what better excuse to burn stuff than to do research on making fire starters?

It's also fun to make fires in primitive or interesting ways, like with the sun or by friction or with sparking tools. But, for those times when you just want a good fire and you want it fast, you should have some items handy to help make that fire fast. Here's a list of some fire starters and helpers that you can find or make. Have fun!

These things should be kept in ziploc baggies to keep them dry and to keep the rest of your gear clean. Some of them can be messy and sitting in your backpack in your car in the sun will melt wax and other stuff.
