Found on the Internet: The 45 Day Emergency Candle

A Crisco Candle
This candle will last you a month and a half!

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!
