Sup pit. It's been a while, but I have a question that i have no ****ing clue what to do with. So I was trying to light some vaseline on fire a moment ago, and it just kinda melted. It says on the jar "100% pure petroleum jelly". Isn't petroleum supposed to burn? is this false advertising? WTF??

It is certainly quite flammable.

But it can only be explosive if it is mixed with approximately the right amount of oxygen or other oxidizer.
Sitting around in air does not push much oxygen into the jelly, so that is not explosive.
I think the jelly does not evaporate enough at room temperature to make explosive vapors over it.
But I cannot be sure.

At some slightly elevated temperature, a little above its "Flash Point" which is 50 degrees C in one MSDS I found,
the vapors in a deep or closed cup with petroleum jelly on the bottom may explode when ignited.
Drug-store Vaseline might have a slightly higher (safer) flash-point temperature.


And I found the link at this wonderful thing called GOOGLE

Just because it's made of petroleum doesn't mean that it should catch on fire. For example, plastic is made of petroleum, yet it melts.

Ya, totally thought people were gonna go Icy Hot with this and TS was gonna say he fapped with Vaseline and that he heard it was supposed to burn but didn't.

I'm quite disappointed. Which is sad; I shouldn't be disappointed when people don't talk about fapping.

Cotton balls soaked in petroleum jelly and lit on fire are un-tracebale to an arson investigator incase anyone is looking for ways to burn some **** down and not get caught.
