In modern/urban survival it is important to have a ready-made durable light-source. Mega-matches are easy to make, store, and light. Ambient, usable light can last over 5 - 10mins. Below is what you need.

  • Wooden kitchen, preferably strike-anywhere matches
  • Cotton balls, dryer lint, dandelion fluff, or cattail down
  • Beeswax or paraffin (synthetic wax)
  • Small sandwich bag, mini-bags, plastic wrap
  • Old medicine bottle, (Altoid) tin, or other type of storage.
