Alternative Fire Starting Method by using Potassium Permanganate

Alternative fire starting methods should be in every survivalists bag of tricks. It’s no secret that you can start a fire without any matches, but do you know any?  We  have been starting fires since the dawn of creation without matches but how many methods do you know?  Did you know that you can start a fire by mixing two chemicals together?  This will be one of many posts on how to start a fire using alternative fire starting methods.  Both of our chemicals we will be working with can be found almost anywhere.  In fact we have linked them below to our store for easy purchase.  Don’t expect this method to be a sure fire way for starting fires.  It does has limitations such as the ambient temperature needing to be above 65 degrees fahrenheit.

Be sure to have an adequate tender supply to keep your fire going once you mix the chemicals.  It’s so simple even a caveman can do it.

Simply mix a few drops of glycerin with a few crystals of potassium permanganate mixed with a little bit of time and enjoy the fruits of your labor.
