Inspired by an article in Wilderness Way, SuriviveLA made our own post-apocalyptic lighting out of two aluminum cans.

According to the author of that article, Del Gideon, the Vietnamese used to make these lamps back during the war. You can also use these lamps to heat up water.

Cans will be abundant if SHTF, so take a moment and learn how this easy DIY project could give you some decent light and purify water all at the same time.

Making one is easy check out the tutorial in the link below… If you have any other uses for cans please head on over to our Facebook page and leave us a comment 🙂
