How to Make DIY Waterproof Fire Starters:
Supplies you will need:
- Soda straws
- Cotton balls
Using scissors, cut the straws into one inch pieces.
Take a one inch piece of cut straw and hold it with your pliers, about 1/8 inch from the end.
Now use the lighter to melt and seal the straw on one end.
Pack the straw with as much cotton as you can fit, but be sure to leave some room at the end of the straw to so you can seal it
Using the pliers, hold the open end of straw, 1/8 inch from end, and seal the other side with lighter.
