* use Doritos as kindling

it’s almost officially summer

and for those of you who enjoy camping or just a good bonfire,

here’s a  hack that’s a win-win in my book.

*(important note: don’t forget to hide them from the family/friends, as they may disappear)

Fire won’t start? Not a problem! We got you! If you don’t want to spend money on expensive fire starters go ahead and stop by your local grocery store and pick up a bag of Doritos. These dense, oily, corn chips are combustible, ideal kindling for starting a fire, and will last for a long time. Bonus Tip: We heard that if you get the Flaming Hot Doritos they light up even faster!


“the online music magazine pitchfork once wrote that

i would collaborate with anyone for a bag of doritos.”

  1. Funny, but not the best hack. Naturally dried moss with sap is great and free. Or what I have in my disaster preparedness, back country hiking pack is a bag of cotton balls with petroleum jelly as water resistant starters. Something fun you can show the kids: lighting steel wool with a 9-volt battery. You can do it about three times then the battery is useless.
