Same goes for tampons if you pull them apart a little. They also come packaged in waterproof plastic so even when it rains you always got some dry tinder material. If you go camping it’s a good addition to your gear even if you’re a guy.”

A source of fire, and it’ll burn continuously, letting you have plenty of time to build a fire with sticks in a emergency situation.”
