A New Way to Put That Old Bacon Grease to Use

Growing up, my mom always kept an old jar of bacon grease on top of the fridge.

She mostly used it for cooking — at least, that's what she said it was for. More than anything, it seemed like it just sat there for ages.

I'm a big fan of finding a use for everything and never throwing anything away, even if it's just old fat. With a little creativity, you can find a purpose for just about everything.

The video below from one of our favorite Youtubers, the Crazy Russian Hacker, shows you how to make an emergency candle out of old bacon grease. Check it out, and be sure to share your own DIY survival tips in the comments!
