Spark Experiment

Already been asked a question regarding the PET balls.
They are not a fire starter but rather a fire extender. You will still need flint and steel, a match, a lighter, etc to start the actual fire. Once you do the PET balls gives more time for your other tender to catch.
My son and I did an experiment to show the difference between just regular lint and the PET BALL. I have to change file type and such to post, but I doubt that will happen. So here is a summary.
We lit the PET ball with a lighter. About 20 seconds later we lit the regular lint. The regular lint burned for about 60 seconds. 3 minutes later the PET ball was still burning but I stopped filming. So clearly the PET ball gives you a better chance of getting a get fire started.
