How To Start a Fire With a Water Bottle

There are a lot of articles, videos, tips and even special chemicals designed to enable the average Prepper to be able to light a fire in all manner of weather. Most of this I think is a little too thought out and complicated but knowing how to start a fire is definitely vital.

Having a fire enables you to cook, boil water and provide light and safety. In my bug out bag I always have a couple of Bic lighters. These are generally the easiest and cheapest means of starting fire that virtually everyone is comfortable with and are easily accessible.

When we talk about survival though, you don’t always have your lucky bag of tricks with you. You may have taken a day hike, wandered off the trail and become lost or zombies attacked while you were on vacation at the beach. You may not have any survival gear with you and that Bic lighter you have might be back in your car. You have a lot of options like we mentioned above. You could start a fire with a fire plough, or bust your cell phone apart and use the screen as a lens.

I like the idea that Grant shows below and this is another easy way to get a fire out of something you might have on you when you get lost. When all you have on you is a bottle of water, it helps to know how to start a fire with a water bottle. You can impress your kids with this too.
