Do you ever see something and just think to yourself, how cool is that? From the very first time I saw this video that is what I thought it. This video is from USNERDOC on YouTube and demonstrates how to create an emergency heater/stove using a 1 Quart Paint Can, A Roll of Toilet Paper, and a Quart of Isopropyl Alcohol.
The complete list of materials from USNERDOC is as follows:
BILL OF MATERIALS
• CLEAN QUART PAINT CAN & LID
• ROLL TOILET TISSUE
• QUART BOTTLE ISOPROPYL ALCOHOL
• BUTANE LIGHTER
• PAINT CAN OPENER
• DUCT TAPE (8 INCHES)
• OPTIONAL CLEAN 1 GAL PAINT CAN LID
Not only is this heater/stove practical and easy to make but it is made using materials that can be located at any hardware or big box store. USNERDOC lists this heater specifically for use as a vehicle heater but the applications could easily be expanded for heating food as well as a variety of other options. The instructional PDF file that USNERDOC put together for this heater can be located at this link.
