Harness the power of the classic potassium permanganate and glycerin reaction to make very effective miniature chemical fire starters. These chemical fire starters are easy to make, and great for camping trips. Just be very careful!
You will need: potassium permanganate, glycerin, two empty pill capsules, dropper, measuring spoon, and a small piece of paper. On your camping trip, make sure you take some cotton, too, so it's easier to start the campfire.
