Camping Hack: Use Doritos for Kindling

Doritos for kindling

Ah, the great outdoors! Make it better by using Doritos for kindling.

While you and your loved ones are enjoying an overnight camping trip, there comes that moment when it’s time to build a fire–and that’s when you find out that starting a fire is not as easy at looks in the movies. Rubbing two sticks together to start a fire takes a long time. Finding kindling–especially in the dark–isn’t always easy, and if it’s rained recently, the kindling might not be dry enough to catch fire.

This is where your snacks come in handy. You can use Doritos (or Pirate Booty) for kindling. The chips are covered with dried particles of fat (yummy) that catch first quite easily.
