My current fave is Purelle hand sanitizer -definitely clean burning.

Actually quite a few household items work well for fire starting - like Chapstick, if I understand correctly

Tinder-quik for me too. But I char one of the tinders as well to make it easier to light with a magnifier lens. When the sun is lower in the sky and it is cool out, everything counts in making a fire.
