One of the most difficult situations to deal with in life is the sudden power outage. When we are not adequately prepared to handle a loss of power, it can throw our whole world into chaos. Most of us are not equipped with survivor’s supplies and backup lighting options that can keep our lives moving forward as planned. All it takes is three quick minutes to watch this clip and your life will never be the same again. With the help of this video, you will be able to use a stick of butter in order to keep your house well lit in an emergency state. One of the most fun parts of the Internet and social media is being able to pass on neat tricks and life hacks to one another. Videos like these not only make our lives easier, but they also help to keep us safer, as well. All you need is a simple stick of butter from your own fridge in order to keep you and your loved ones safe during a blackout.
In addition to the stick of butter, you will also need a piece of toilet paper. This new source of light is able to help you through a power outage and can burn for several hours. The man in this clip starts off with a four ounce stick of butter, which he then sets on top of the piece of folded toilet paper.
From there, he slices the stick of butter in half, using a large knife to do so. Be sure to hold onto the sides when cutting, so that the paper that holds the butter does not accidentally open up. After you’ve created your two halves, you must now construct the wick for your makeshift candle.
The toilet paper must be cut up into four different squares, then take a square and fold it diagonally, until it has been twisted into the shape of a wick. Place it up against the butter, ensuring that only a quarter of the wick is sticking up. Then it is time to fold your wick until you find the correct positioning.
The center of the butter must be penetrated with the skewer, all the way down to the bottom of the apparatus. Use the skewer to push your wick through the hole you’ve made. The top of the wick must be coated in butter, for adequate starter fuel. Once you’ve done that, you now have a great emergency candle, ready to go. Light the candle with a match and make sure that the fire is placed close to the bottom, as this aids in the heating process.
