doors head to the Dollar Tree or a store that is near you that has the pirouette pirouline cookies and cotton rounds you can use the cotton rounds and the can from
the pirouette pirouline cookies to make char cloth fire starters char cloth is a great fire starter
once your cookie can is empty you want to loosely fill it with cotton rounds don’t
pack them in you need to leave a little bit of room because we know that fire
needs a little bit of oxygen for it to burn take a nail and a hammer or a drill
put a hole through the lid of your cookie tin now you’re going to place the
lid back on the can get your barbecue going full blast and set the can on to
the gas barbecue grill the heat from the grill is going to char the cotton so that you
have char cloth fire starters left in your can let it go you can see when it starts to burn and char the cloth because smoke will come out at the top of the little hole I let the gas barbecue grill fire go for about 30 minutes make sure all the smoke has stopped coming out of the can and then allow the can to cool completely then you can open the can and look you have
nice perfectly formed pieces of char cloth fire starters you made yourself the char cloth is ready to just light in an
instant and start a fire and gives you another option of DIY ways to start fires in

Tree is the very simple survival prep thing to do and it gives you more confidence that you’re
