Creating Water Proof Matches



Creating Water Proof Matches…

How about making your own waterproof matches.

  1. Pour 2 to 3 large tablespoons of Turpentine into a small (Tumbler sized) glass.
  2. Place the matches, (Head down) into the Turpentine and allow the matches to soak for 5 minutes.
  3. Remove the matches and spread them out to dry out on a sheet of newspaper. Generally, 20 minutes for excess turpentine to be evaporated is recommended. Matches treated in this way remain waterproof for several months or longer.
