A fire starter for people with nothing better to do

If you ever find yourself in a situation where you need a fire, all you need is a lemon and a few other items you probably wouldn’t carry camping, and you’re in luck.

That’s right. A lemon can actually be used to start a fire. The acid from the lemon is enough to provide electricity to ignite a fire.

You might think it would be easier to use a lighter, and it would. But this would be a neat project to teach survival skills.

Watch this video to see how easy it is.
