How to backup and restore Iptables rules and sysctl.conf?

Hello everyone,

How do I backup and restore Iptables rules and /etc/sysctl.conf?

To be more specific, how do I backup Iptables rules and /etc/sysctl.conf to a location in /home/(username) ?
I prefer to back them up to /home, but I can back them up just about anywhere (except /boot, obviously.)
How do I restore Iptables rules and/or /etc/sysctl.conf from those backup files?
