How to Make a Cooking Oil Lamp. When the rainy season arrives, electricity often goes out or mass blackouts are carried out by security guards or security guards in residential or residential complexes because of the large number of lightning or thunderstorms. If there are no candles or emergency lights at home, then your house feels dark.
Anyone must have experienced a blackout (electricity). It doesn't really matter if it dies during the day. But on the other hand, if the candles die at night, the stock of candles runs out, the emergency lights are damaged or you forget to charge them, and the nearest shop is closed, it's going to be a lot of trouble doing dark activities.

- Cooking oil into a cup / glass until almost half.
- Twist the fabric that you have prepared to resemble a wick.
