They Didn’t Teach Me To Start A Fire In Boy Scouts Like This!

If you’re into wilderness survival skills, you’re going to love this fire starting hack.

Well we didn’t know you could start a fire with a mere lemon and were sure you didn’t either.

Well with a little help, of course and the right tools you can start a fire yourself by charging an electrical current through a lemon.

Things you will need for this fire starter hack:


-6 Copper Clips

-6 Sink Nails


-Steel Wool

First take the lemon and soften it up in the balm of your hand.

Push your going to start to push the copper clips into the lemon on the same side about 1 centimetre apart.

On the other side you’re going to do the same with the sink nails.

Take the wire and start to connect the first copper clip to the second nail and the second copper clip to the third nail and so on.

This is what creates the reaction that will conduct the electricity that we need.

Then connect the wire to each side of the lemon.

Then you are going to take the steel wool and put some tinders on top of it.

This is what’s going to help spark about 5 volts of electricity from the lemon and what you just need to start a fire.
