Today I Learned: You Can Transform Crisco Into An Emergency Candle

DIY-Crisco-Candle

When it comes to zombie apocalypses, the guy behind Crisco knew what was up. While many of us instinctively go for the baseball bat or duct tape when we think “Essentials for a Zombie Takeover,” few realize that in the event of an apocalypse, electricity will become a rarity, if not a thing of the past.

Cue in Crisco — a tub of shortening that also happens to be a gigantic candle in disguise. Simply take a tub of Crisco, drill a hole down the middle using a chopstick, insert a piece of string, and light that baby up. The DIY candle will burn for 8 hours a day, for 45 days. 

Bottomline: In case of zombie apocalypse, grab Crisco.
