Hey Youtube! Here is a video from the Discreet Prepper “Tips & Tricks” department.
Here is an idea for you do-it-yourselfers… I made my own instant fire mixture with simple common articles you can find around the house. I mixed up dryer lint, wood shavings, shredded cardboard and finely shredded tire/rubber material. I took the mixture and soaked it with charcoal lighting fluid, then I let the whole mixture sit in the sun and dry out for two days. After it had all dried, I put the mixture into an old vitamin bottle and there you go… Home made, instant fire materials. You don’t have to add the shredded tire material, but it seems to add a nice hot burn to the mix. To make the shredded rubber material, you can put a rubber bushing, old tire, or rubber floor edging on a grinder and make a rubber “dust”.
PS: Here is a sample of rubber you could use:
Help Me To Help You – I make videos to help people out. I’m still learning and I am not perfect. Before you thumbs down a video or leave a reply that simply says something like “This is dumb”, please give me a little more detail as to why you did not like it so it can help me make better videos. Sound good?
Decency Rule – Let’s keep the comments area cordial and safe for other families. I was always taught, “If you don’t have something nice to say, keep it to yourself.” I don’t want to be a “Comment Snob”, but if you have any thoughts (positive or negative) or ideas, please let me know… Just keep it friendly, ok? I’ve seen some of the most insulting and vulgar comments on harmless videos. If you hate the video, simply move on and forget it ever happened.
