Howdy All,

In one of my prep newsletter subscriptions, there was more in the way of tips and cautions in making and using crisco candles. I have pasted that info below...jpf

Crisco Candle for Emergency Situations
Mon Jul 23, 2012 2:14 pm (PDT) . Posted by:

...YOU COULD DOWNSIZE THIS BY FILLING BEAN OR SOUP CANS AND MAKING SEVERAL CANDLES.

...Yes, you can use most fats too, such as animal fats. I even used Vaseline one time. Said the Antarctic expeditions used the fat from animals that were about.

..TWO CAN CANDLE

..So is the Q-tip / wick floating, and sinking as the grease liquefies, or could you just punch a wick to the bottom of the can? And depending on ambient heat, could the Crisco ignite? Grease fires are very bad. BTW, I did a study on homemade fire extinguishers using Baking Soda & Vinegar, and we made a couple: very good way to make foam & CO2 which will kill any fire.

...how much is Crisco a LB

...it would probably be cheaper to buy 50 # candle wax and do it really right and save this for making fried pies; or something else in fact everyone should have 50# candle wax around as standard preps anyway...... .

...oh and there are wooden wick available now that would be well suited to stabbing into the Crisco can candle

...What & where do you get the wooden wick?

...True, wax is better, but this is for emergencies for the millions. It may save a life. I used to do the TP in a 1 lb. coffee can deal in Denver all the time. A bottle of alcohol, the TP already in the can, with tube removed and the roll scrunched into can, and you had a heat source that would keep it working for a long time & it is spill proof, easily doused, does not produce CO, JUST CO2, (Crisco probably would make Carbon Monoxide) so it was good in a closed space like a car on the side of the highway in a blizzard (keep feet elevated or on someone's stomach if you have two people to prevent frostbite,) and the alcohol does not freeze while bottle is in the trunk.

...Same here; it is a way to store a fuel easily, have it available, and be usable in a pinch, wont freeze or spill (much) and is readily available.

this is a good source for the wood wick and also wax and wicks

http://www.wholesal esuppliesplus. com/ProductSearc h.aspx

another couple trusted source for wax and wicks

and calculator for wicking in there some where in all this as far as i remember, if not let me know and i can keep looking

http://www.mcsoywax .com/

http://www.candlesu pply.com/

http://cart. candlesupply. com/Wicks- c-292.html also has wood wicks

a big box of wax is useful for lots of stuff

if you get one that can be used in skin care, you can make balms as such

make fire starters of all kind

candles of course, and i am sure i am missing quite a few ideas on use


it is important to have the right wick for the whole candle or it will not burn rightly (keep burning or smoking profusely are examples of incorrect wicking)

...some calculator type candle stuff

http://www.candlehe lp.com/?content= calcwax

...wick chart think the other sites have similar info

http://rusticescent uals.com/ Wick-Chart. html

...This is great. Just because, I am going to make one but I am going to see if vanilla or cinnamon liquid will make them smell good. Course you don't want the good smell in SHTF situation, lol. Might attract people. A suggestion : shiny, thick aluminum foil wrapped around the back, up higher than the flame, should make this candle brighter for a room.

PLUS!!! The aluminum foil can double as a snuffer-outer in case you need to put it out quick: security blackout issue or the grease lights off...still not too sure about having that much grease near open flame...Look up MSDS for Crisco: if it hits what temp does it ignite without a wick to coax it along???
