    I saw a 100 hour candle this morning when a prepper friend of mine were looking for different prepping items. I showed it to him, and he asked “does it burn for 100 hours straight, or can you put it out during that time?” I couldn’t figure it out, although I would imagine it could be put out. Does anybody know the answer?

    We keep several cases on hand in our hurricane kit for summer lighting… Low heat which is great for summer emergencies…

    I get similar looking candles for $1 each at the dollar store. I haven’t burned one all the way down, but I did leave it burning for about 6 hours as a test and it didn’t burn down too fast. Was easy enough to blow out with a puff of breath, but snuffing it out by covering the jar top should work too. Tricky part would be relighting it once you’re more than a few inches down from the top. If you have those disposable long stem butane lighters, not a problem, but regular kitchen matches might be an issue…

    one thing to avoid with candles are the scented ones – you’d think a little scenting would be beneficial with close quarters living and lack of some sanitation >>>> but it turns more nauseating than pleasant meadow of flowers or romance ….

    another aspect is safety – if you have kids involved make sure to tack the candle holder down – don’t tempt them to take a candle along back to their bedroom or to the bathroom – same same with oil lamps and lanterns ….

    A long piece of spaghetti, dry. Makes a good long “match”. I used to use it to light my furnace. I taped 2 together for a bigger flame. Or a regular match taped to a pencil.
