In this video I show you how to make fire with a lemon. This is an awesome survival tip that you don´t want to miss. Learn how to make a battery and avoid scurvy with nothing more than a lemon, copper clips, zinc nails, wire, and steel wool! Watch the video below to find out how.
Electricity is generated through oxidation-reduction, a chemical reaction that occurs when the zinc dissolves into the acid, the lemon itself doesn’t generate electricity.
When two electrodes are placed in a liquid electrolyte and connected by a conductive material, they generate electricity. A Lemon juice is a good electrolyte which makes the fruit a perfect fire starter.
Place the steel wool on the ground, and top it with some dry kindling. I used toilet paper, but you can also use things like small sticks, dry grass, shaved bark—anything else that will quickly catch fire.
