  • DIY Survival Projects Part 5: Fire Pods

    These are what I like to call "Fire Pods". Because it just sounds cool.
    Easy to ignite and hot enough to burn damp or wet fuel.
    They're great to keep around for normal fire starting or for any bug out bags and survival kits.
    These suckers are fire starting gold. Easy to make also.
    Let's get started.



    Safety first. You'll probably want to wear some work gloves and eye protection, hot wax isn't pleasant when it splashes on exposed skin or eyes. A set of food tongs is also needed to avoid contact with hot wax.


    Step 1: Start with a cardboard egg carton, dryer lint, and paraffin wax. Cotton can also be used instead of lint.

    Step 2: Cut out the individual egg cups.

















    Step 3: Pack the lint into the cup.

    Step 4: Melt the wax in a metal pot over low heat.
















    Step 5: Use food tongs to dip the cup into the liquid wax. Make sure the wax coats the whole cup and saturates the lint inside.

    Step 6: Use food tongs to remove cup and sit aside to cool. You can see I also made one with cotton balls. They should be ready to go in an hour or two.





















    Now you have a waterproof fire starter that can easily be ignited with one match or concentrated sparks from a ferro rod.


    These things burn hot and long enough to dry and ignite wet fuel.

    Stay tuned for another DIY survival project coming soon.
