How to Make an Emergency Heater
Crisco Candle for emergency situations. Simply put a piece of string in a tub of shortening, and it will burn for up to 45 days. Apparently Crisco was originally made to be used this way. If you use the butter flavored one it smells buttery. I have now found a use for all my used candle and empty candle containers. New wicks can be purchased at craft stores.
