Fire Starter: Petroleum Jelly Ball

Out of the many fire starters that I have used, the petroleum jelly ball is my favorite.  They are small, light weight, and burn for a long time.  They are also waterproof!  I have seen several ways to make these, but in this video I highlight what works best for me.  Enjoy!

    I had no idea the cotton would burn for so long. Great job.

  3. Rob says:

    Yeah, that’s what surprised me too. About how long will those cotton balls burn? Have you tested them to see how long you can run around looking for kindling (that you forgot to gather before lighting it) before it goes out?

    Also, with the jelly on them, how well do they work in a breeze?

    Half of a cotton ball will usually burn well for about 2-3 minutes. The flame can be blown out, but it would have to be really windy. In the video, it was pretty windy outside during the demonstration and there was no wind block, but it did just fine as you can see.
