How To Make A Soda Can Stove

How To Make A Soda Can Stove

Here’s a great camping hack to use two aluminum beverage cans to make a small and portable 15 minute stove.

It’s small, so uses would be limited. Outside of small meats and eggs etc, how about Absynth and sugar?

Things You’ll Need

  • 2 aluminum cans, for example, soft drink cans, beer cans; they must be in good condition, with no dents
  • Push pin (a pin with a plastic head)
  • Hammer (small)-optional
  • Sharp knife, utility blade or scissors
  • ¼ cup perlite
  • If making your own stand : Wire coat hanger (remove any paint with sandpaper beforehand)
    Fuel – denatured alcohol, methanol or absolute ethanol. Denatured alcohol is inexpensive and available at any hardware or big box store. Absolute ethanol will be harder to find and a lot more expensive.
  • Some leak-proof container to carry your extra fuel. Camp stores have a selection of appropriate bottles that close tightly and dispense cleanly. Clearly mark the fuel bottle. Denatured alcohol contains methanol, which can cause blindness and death if swallowed. Do not use a bottle which resembles a water bottle; you definitely don’t want to drink from the wrong one at night.

10 Ways to Lace Up Your Shoes Creatively

10 Ways to Lace Up Your Shoes Creatively

Perhaps one of the hardest things a 4-year-old kid can learn is to tie his shoes. On the contrary, for adults like us, it’s the simplest and probably the most boring activity we can think of. I’m pretty sure you wouldn’t want to register for a seminar on how to lace shoes, right!

It’s obvious, you don’t even need to use your brain when tying shoelaces. Look back up, I said most b-o-r-i-n-g a while ago when I mentioned lacing shoes up. But I will take that back. Why? Because when I saw the post from Diply featuring videos of lacing up shoes artistically, I realize how intricate, complicated, and creative it is to lace up shoes. That is if you do it like the way we do it on the featured videos.
