We all have that jar full of used cooking oil. Wouldn’t it be great to use it to make an oil lamp with used cooking oil?
Make An Oil Lamp with Used Cooking Oil
I had grabbed that jar of previously used cooking oil and was getting ready to safely dispose of it.
Only then did I I realize that to dispose of this jar of oil, was essentially throwing away a ready-to-use oil lamp.
I took it to the garage, found some old string and sunk it into the oil filled jar. Then I dug out some old unshielded wire and created a wick holder for the string.

It seems that this lamp works fantastically and smells like a french fries! It burned and burned and burned, then I got bored and put it out.
I guess I learned a lesson today, instead of disposing of jars full of oil, I’ll store them away for use as oil lamps. I learned to Make An Oil Lamp with Used Cooking Oil and recycled in the process. I am so green 😉
