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.

    I love the idea good one for camping enthusiasts I would get a straw and cut it shorter than the length of the wick then insert it in the crisco then pull out he straw they do make smaller containers of crisco too so if the large one goes for 45 days we can only surmise the smaller one go for 20 days . How about scooping the crisco into used up candle containers and use on your patio.
