Very long burn time from combined dryer lint fibers
and mixing in few tablespoons of SnoSeal.
Specially effective for difficult damp fire conditions

Put in sealed metal box from mints or other candy.

Works great in conjunction with some
homemade Char Cloth and a Magnesium stick
or one hand Spark-Lite™
