Use A Tin Of Crisco Fat To Make A Candle That Burns For Hours In An Emergency
Candles are always good to have on hand in case the power goes out, but if you get caught without any in your house, you can make a dead simple candle with a tub of fat and a piece of string. Just put a piece of string in the middle, and light it up. Not only will it burn, it'll last for 45 days; enough to get you through a zombie apocalypse or two. Many tutorials recommend using a candle wick, but you should be able to use regular old string.
