Imagine this: You’ve come home from a long day, whipped up a meal for your family, you’re finally relaxing on the couch, enjoying some quality time with your spouse and kids. Then suddenly, there is a black out. You can’t see anything, it’s pitch black, the kids are scared. So with the last 5% battery of your phone, you go searching for candles. You don’t have any. What do you do?

Apparently, if you ever find yourself in this wild, specific scenario you can use crayons for emergency lighting.

Bec and Jeziel tested out this “hack” to see if it really works, watch the experiment unfold below.


So there you have it… maybe add “candles” not “crayons” to the shopping list.

Once a week Bec and Jeziel check out a “life hack” so that you don’t have to! We’ll verify it or fail it, so that you don’t have to waste your time messing about with tricks only to find out they don’t actually work.
