To start a quick fire
by: Bob Leeper

I take a handful of alcohol prep pads with me into the wilderness along with a small bottle of hand sanitizer, as both can be used to start a quick fire.

A spark will ignite a cotton ball with a few drops of sanitizer or an alcohol prep pad and it burns hot enough to get a good warm fire going. I keep the pads and small bottle in with my flint and steel, in a small cookie tin. It keeps things dry and I have access to it quickly and its good for scrapes and cuts as well.

Get some cotton wool and cover it with vaseline (PETROLeum jelly). As you can imagine this cathes light extremely easily. and can then be used to light tinder or kindling
