Keeping a flame going can be difficult sometimes, and candles can sometimes be hard to come by! Coley Hudgins shows us that if you have a tub of Crisco (or any type of shortening really) you can easily make a long-lasting candle. A big can of Crisco (as shown above) can be left lit 8 hours a day and will last for 45 days. Just insert a piece of string into the center of your shortening and light the type – Instant Candle!
