Hey guys, I have been meaning to do this for ages, making Char cloth.
I have used many other tinders in the past like cotton balls in Vaseline, dryer lint, pine fatwood etc but wanted to make some char cloth.
I got a metal tin from the op shop, punched a wee hole in the lid, cut up a brushed cotton shirt (also from the op shop) and put the cotton in the tin and placed it on the embers in my firebox at home. It took about 20 minutes for the gases to burn out and then I removed the tin and let it cool down, ta taaah char cloth
