Anyone who uses matches would not mind if they were lit on any surface, not just the one on the ill-fated box. Using this "grater" is sometimes trivially inconvenient. On the other hand, matches that light on anything are incredibly comfortable to use, especially when you go hunting or fishing. You can get such universal matches in two ways - you can buy it in a store or make it yourself.
To create matches you will need
For the manufacture of besterochny matches, you will need directly matches, several boxes from them, sandpaper, a small container and a stirring stick, pliers, a pipette, some water, and a small plastic or metal tube.
Important! Remember to work with phosphorus, which is an unsafe ingredient, when making matches. On contact with the skin, phosphorus and sulfur can cause severe burns. Therefore, precautions should be taken. The possibility of getting the substance on hands and other parts of the body should be excluded. It is also recommended to wash your hands thoroughly after each operation.
How to make matches
We take sandpaper and use it to clean the red phosphorus from the matchboxes. Pour the resulting substance into a container. After that, a few drops of water should be added to the phosphorus and mixed until a liquid slurry is obtained. Now we need to dip the matches in the resulting mixture and leave them to dry in a suitable (dry) place.
While the matches are drying, another mixture is prepared. With the help of pliers, wax is removed from matches that have not yet been processed. The resulting substance should be ground into a fine powder, from which another "gruel" is prepared using water. Dried matches need to be dipped in a new substance and sent back to dry. That's the whole technology.
