So I was sitting around thinking on what I might already have laying around the house that I could incorporate into my survival gear. When my wife asks me to go swap the laundry. That's when it hit me. Drier lint. What a great fire starting material, and I have a trash can full of it next to the drier, lol. Roll it into balls and cover in vaseline and there you go. This is just one of a hundred things we could use a byproduct of daily life for survival equipment. What have you come up with?

I actually decided I make some pouches with the food saver and pack a ton of drier lint into a couple of 5x6 pouches. when vacuumed down they are nice and thin. There is enough lint in each pouch to start about four fires.
So what other ideas have you all come up with?

A great item to have is those solar garden lights, Walmart had them for 3 dollars each, a couple will light up a room and they can be used to charge 2 AA rechargeable batteries each. Much safer than candles, will give free light for years.

Someone once recommended to me buying the fuzzy batting walmart sells around Christmas time for under the tree and using that for a firestarter. Something in the way it's made, as long as it's not the kind with the chemicals the stick the sparkles on, makes it good to roll into balls and use as fire starter.
