If you put petroleum jelly on a cotton ball...guess what? 

That sucker will burn for quite some time! So what you say? Well, when you are camping and want to start a fire, or even at home and want to start a fire, and kindling is scarce - this is a sure way (and cheap way) of getting that sucker burning!

How? It's pretty simple actually. Watch this good ol boy prep a jelly cotton ball.

Now you try it! You'll never get caught scrounging around for kindling ever again!
