Making Char Cloth (charcloth) - the essential outdoors firestarting material

Making Char Cloth (charcloth) - the essential outdoors firestarting material | Brian's Science and Technology | Scoop.it
Char cloth (or charred cloth) is a swatch of fabric made from vegetable linen, such as cotton, that has been converted into a slow-burning fuel of very low ignition temperature. A single, small spark placed on char cloth will ignite the cloth which will begin to glow red. The slow-burning char cloth can then be used to ignite a tinder bundle to start a fire. Once ignited, it will continue to produce smoldering embers for a minute or two giving you plenty of time to place the cloth into a tinder bundle and blow on it until the bundle ignites and begins burning. http://wildernessarena.com/food-water-shelter/firecraft/making-char-cloth-charcloth-outdoors-firestarting-material
