I haven't heard of the dryer lint and gulf wax method. Can anyone elaborate for me? As I don't have much money, I figure I can at least start by learning some survivalist methods. Thanks in advance :)

I put my dryer lint (pack it in cause the lint is free verses the wax, about 5.99 here, but I can make about four dozen or so.) in cardboard egg cartons. The cartons makes it the perfect size and we get quite a few from friends and family after they are done with them. Melt the gulf wax in a double broiler and just pour a little over each one. Once set, cut the 'egg lint starters' to separate.

Thanks! Also, how would you go about starting a fire with the 'egg', in the wilderness.

We use lighters around here. . .Zippos are a good option since they can be refilled. We use it for the fireplace. After adding on logs on top of some tinder, just place under and light. Normally burns for a good 15 minutes, by that time the wood has caught.

Hadn't tried the Vaseline. I know the gulf wax normally burns for around 15 minutes or so

Take the lint out of your dryer, take some Vaseline, and rub it into the lint. You can roll into balls, keep it flat, or however you might need it. But it will light.
