      Can someone help me! I’ve perused all over this site trying to find directions on how to make the toilet paper tube wig. I see it on pinterest but none of these links it send me to has directions. Thanks for any help you can give…..

    I do historical reenacting (American Revolution) and, while I can and do make period-correct fires, sometimes the guys would rather play Army than chop kindling and tinder for us…and it rains. So when nobody is looking — usually before public hours in the morning — I use fire starters made from TP tubes. Stuff them with waste paper: paper towels I drained bacon on are “da bomb,” dryer lint, burned wooden matchsticks, etc. No, I don’t use used TP, but remember — whatever it is, it will be BURNED! After it’s stuffed, put a bit of cheap cooking oil (store brand corn oil) on it and let it soak the tube. I keep them in a used plastic bag. They are SUPER tinder.
