the multipurpose fire straw/first aid straw or FFA

fire straws are brilliant but the FFA fire first aid straw is an [COLOR="Red"]original invention of my own[/COLOR]. it is multiple purpose version of the original. i have never seen it anywhere on the internet and this is the first place im publishing it. if you know how to make a fire straw then you dont need my advice just change out the petroleum jelly with triple antibiotic ointment.



ok so you take a heavy duty straw and cut in 1.5 inch sections.

using triple antibiotic ointment and not using heat, work the antibiotic ointment into cotton balls. fully saturate the cotton with the ointment.

using needle nose pliers heat the pliers with a lighter and crimp/melt one end of the straw section.

using clean/sanitized tool like a piece of coat hanger wire or a tooth pick to pack the saturated cotton into the straw that has been sealed on one side

use some dry cotton to clean the inside of the last 3/8 inch of the open end of the straw. remove as much ointment as is resonable

clamp the open end closed with the pliers and heat the pliers until the straw melts closed.

wash the straws with soapy water to remove the excess ointment






so now you have strong encapsulated cotton and triple antibiotic ointment for scrapes and cuts or even packing a wound. but you also have fire starting material. you can actually use it for both. you stop at your new camp. pull out the FFA straw (fire first aid) and treat several scrapes or cuts then use the cotton for fire starting material. remember the plastic can burn too and increases the likely hood of the fire catching in wet weather. last tip. once you have removed the cotton for either or both purposes you can squeeze out the last little bit of ointment and use it for lip balm.

Good stuff. Doesn't take any space or weight you down and has more than one use. I like it!
