Do you want a fun way to start a fire without matches or a lighter? The best way to do this is to use the sun to ignite a product like char cloth. Char cloth is a type of cloth that will ignite if you direct the sunlight by using a magnifying glass. You can easily make char cloth with fabric material made from cotton.

An old pair of jeans will be perfect to use to make char cloth at home. This is a task that really needs to be done outside in a fire pit or over a campfire. All you need to do is cut some cloth that will fit in a tin or other type of metal container.

You can easily make char cloth to have for general use or to use in an emergency. Having something to use to start a fire for heat or to cook food will be crucial if a disaster occurs.
