We all take light for granted, yet once a disaster hits one of the first utilities we will lose is the power. Sure, a flashlight will help in a pinch, but what happens if the power is out for a couple of days? How about a week? How long are your batteries going to last? Of course, candles are a key asset our team here at APE Survival recommends including in your survival cache, but things happen. Perhaps you needed to bug out. Or maybe it's a couple of months into a disaster and you're rapidly burning through the candles you had stocked beforehand. Don't worry. There are some easy ways to make candles from everyday household items, to keep the lights on in your home. But before we go into how to make these there's two rules.
- Never light a candle in a flammable container or on a flammable surface
- Never leave a burning candle unattended
