Almost everyone carries at least a small first aid kit, and alcohol pads are included in most. For use as a fire starter, or even a short term candle, just cut a small “X” in the top of the package and pull a small amount of the alcohol pad through the “X.” You can then light it even with the sparks from a Ferrocerium Rod. This also works with most disinfectant hand wipes. Also liquid hand sanitizer is very flammable. Just squirt it on your tinder and it burns very hot.
