Tinder is dry stuff with tiny fibers. The first step, in burnin, is to apply flame or spark to tinder.
Tinder is not kindlin. Kindlin is bigger than tinder. Some folks call tinder "kindlin". That messes it up for the more thoughtful folks, such as we are.

MAKE FIRE STARTER
Fire starters are made most often with either cotton's balls, or else with lint from a clothes's dryer.
The balls of cotton are either rubbed with vaseline, or else immersed in melted vaseline or paraffin. Heat must be extremely low. I was thinkin, that vaseline might melt in a jar in the sun, the way that sun's tea has been made. Try fillin a jar with balls of cotton, then puttin vaseline atop them, and puttin the jar into the sun's shinin.
Cotton balls can be carried in old plastic film bottles, or what you call them. Film holders, jars, whatever. Many fire starters can fit into one canister, or can.
You know, the little plastic film jars that fit into the palm, of your hand. One name is as valid, as another, though possibly less familiar. Familiarity and validity do not go hand-in-hand, where language is concerned.
To make a fire starter from the lint, from a clothes's dryer, one usually puts a wad of lint into each compartment of a cardboard eggs' carton, then fills the compartment until a bit of lint is still free at the top. 4-6 cells are cut out from the carton, to make one fire starter.
I do not like to use petroleum derivatives, and much prefer a fire starter, that does not use them. Here is one alternative:
Tape one end of a spent cardboard toilet paper tube. Fill it with lint, & tape the other end. There is your fire starter.
I much prefer just to use a "bird's nest" tinder bundle.

Watch out, he gets confused between tinder and kindlin. Kindlin would be paper or small sticks and twigs. Tinder is tiny filaments.
