One of the best survival fire-making tools is a combination of cotton balls and petroleum jelly, and you can make these firestarter kits for pennies. Basically, you infuse (or gob) the cotton balls with Vaseline or some petroleum jelly derivative (such as Chapstick, Purell handcleaner, etc). When you need to make a fire, fluff up the cotton (as much as you can), and light it with a shower of sparks from a magnesium stick, match, or butane lighter.
