Crayons are made of wax which can be melted and coated over a string for a fire starting enhancment, with enough of them you could melt them and put a water resistant covering on paper and match heads. They can be used to write on damn near anything which would be good for marking trails and navigation. Wax can be melted and applied to a rust bolt to help loosen it without stripping the nut or bolt. Can be used in some cases as a lube.

Duct tape. Not only can it be used as a waterproof sealant, it also can be lit and used as a fast burning firestarter, made into a rope, boot and shoe repair, the list is almost endless.

Me personally I keep a foot of bailing twine covered in candle wax in my pack pretty good for starting fires or as a red neck candle if worse comes to worse. I also keep a thing of bacon grease with me too, not really any medical use just makes things I kill taste better.

One things I've wanted to try is some of the new bow string material and see what all it could be used for given it's standard uses.

Straws. You can fill them with anything from salt, coffee, medicines, anything you need to keep dry. You can cut them into what ever length (single servings)and melt them ends to seal. Then when your done with the contents, the plastic will make a good fire starter.
