Candles can be pretty expensive, which is why most of you probably resort to flashlights during a power outage. But when your batteries run out, you're out of luck, unless you know one of these methods for making a DIY emergency candle out of household junk.
In this video, I cover 5 different DIY emergency candles using cheese wax, butter, a tuna can and oil, a wax crayon, or an orange with oil.
Roll up a strip of newspaper into a tight thin roll and wrap it in cheese wax. Light it up and there's our 1st candle.
Cut off a lump of butter and poke a hole into it with a thin screwdriver. Push in some cotton string and light it.
Pierce a hole into a can of tuna in sunflower oil and push in a short length of cotton string. It will absorb the oil and you've made an oil burner emergency candle.
Take a wax crayon and simply light up the end.
Slice through the peel round half an orange, then remove the fruit. Make sure the peel still has the center stem to use for a wick. Fill the orange peel with olive oil and light it up.
