How To Make A Quick Emergency Lamp From A Mop
In a real emergency situation we all need to use everything around us in order to thrive and survive! That being said, I remember seeing this somewhere on the internet years ago and I am sorry I can’t remember which site. Luckily I can remember how to make one of these simple lamps.
What You Need:
– Coat Hanger or wire
– Olive oil
The rest is obvious by the photo. Fashion a wire holder so the wick is stable and self-supporting, then dip the string into some olive oil and place into the wire holder… Light! There you have a pretty easy, upcycled lamp that will burn for hrs. To make more lamps I would separate the mop string into thinner strands but be careful not to make them to thin or they will burn faster.
