Mounting tires with limited tools?

Is it possible to mount tires on rims with limited household tools and still do it in a way that results in a SAFELY mounted tire?

This guy does it with some soap, a paper towel and a screwdriver. Seems simple enough. I've mounted bicycle tires before and thought nothing of it.

However, I've seen some people use a bead sealant to mount the tires. Is that necessary? After you put the tire on the rim, do you just fit the stem in there and inflate it and that's it?
