|Meet the newest member of the lighting family, the Safer Emergency Candle|
|The instructions are quite simple....|
|Fill a small glass half-way with water.|
|Add no more than 1/2" of oil. I used Canola oil.|
|Place the wick into the plastic cup.|
|Add the plastic float cup into the glass.|
The Safer Candle is also very cost effective. This is from the Safer Candle website:
Convenient and far less expensive:A package of Kevin’s Kandles costing MSRP less than $ 9.USD and contains sufficient supplies to create 100 candles. Factoring in the average cost of vegetable oil in North America will provide the consumer with 100 - 10 hour candles for less than 20¢ per candle. There is no other candle on the market at this low price. It is conceivable that you, as a consumer would only require one package in your lifetime. If the consumer decides to use these candles instead of traditional candles in a non-power failure situation as a means to improve their safety – so much the better.
I'm sold! I thought these little packets of wicks and float cups were such a great idea. I have lanterns, candles, flashlights, and now a Safer Candle pack. Check out the Safer Candle website to order.
I even tested the brightness of the candle. Don't mind my kids' bathroom (please) but is the only room without a window and I did this test during the day. I could see this working really well with 2 or 3 on my kitchen table and we could have enough light for meals. So, if you would like another option for your lighting storage this may be the way to go. I lit the candle just before dinner and it has been burning for over an hour and I haven't noticed any difference in the size of the flame.
Honeyville in Salt Lake was kind enough to let me have this packet of Safer Candles to try out.
