Making a Cooking Oil Candle
September 29, 2016
I learned this idea from my mom three years ago. We used to have rotational brownouts in our area and sometimes we won't have the chance to charge our emergency lights or even our phones. It would be too costly to buy candles for that purpose and candles easily melt. So, here's an amazing idea I would like to share to everyone.
Total Time: 5 minutes
- 1/3 cup cooking oil/used oil
- 3 Tbsp salt
- 1 cotton ball
- 2 in stick
- 1 glass or jar
- Put 3 tablespoons of salt inside the glass. Press it to level the salt into place.
- Pour the cooking oil into the glass of salt.
- Loop the cotton around a piece of stick.
- Insert the stick in the middle of the glass, this will serve as the candle wick. The salt will stabilize the stick into position.
- Light it up with a match stick or a lighter.
- Now you have a candle made from items found in the kitchen. It will last longer than a candle and is much safer to use.
