Krik of Black Owl Outdoors shows you how to make wax-coated cotton balls, one of the best all condition fire tinders.  If the wax coating is effective, the cotton balls will be waterproof, as well as accept a spark from a ferro rod or the flame of a lighter.  The cotton balls, although they can be messy, are easy to use and will burn for upwards of 7 minutes per ball.
