How to make a simple oil lamp (video)


Clever idea. Maybe it will keep mosquitoes away, like citronella.

super great idea thanks Lori!

Once when we were stranded and had to sleep on our vehicle, Juan made a mini campfire by putting some gasoline in a tuna can and lit it...amazing amount of light!

Thank you --- and I bet it would help with mosquitoes. And if you only eat the top exposed part of the orange, you can use the other half to clean a grill.

Ha! Smart. Manteca has so many uses..

But I had to stop and think for a minute...do I still have any shoes with laces? (Just the running shoes- all others are velcro, buckles or slip ons...)
