Convert An Orange Into A Candle

Power outages are never fun, but they're even worse if you get hit with one when you don't have any candles around. Thankfully, Instructables user DualPhase shares a way to convert an orange into a candle in a pinch.

Using an orange, grapefruit or lemon and any type of oil, you can hollow out the fruit and use the middle stem as a wick. After hollowing it out, all you need to do is fill the skin with vegetable or olive oil and you're all set. It's a handy trick that certainly beats out using your phone for light. It probably smells a lot better too. You can find the full guide over on Instructables.

    Isnt it just baby making night when the power goes out?

    hmm thought that would start an oil fire but obviously not....

    Seriously, how bad does your phone actually smell...?
