Feeling chilly and don't want to turn up the heat? Here's a cheap and easy alternative to heating a small room - tealights and flowerpots.
By positioning two flowerpots over four tealight candles in a bread baking dish, you can heat a small room or office. The gap between the two pots enables a flow of air that then passes warm air around the room.
We have friends who have tried this method and it works well.
Be aware that the baking dish and pots will become VERY HOT! DO NOT TOUCH THEM whilst the candle is alight.
NEVER leave a naked flame unattended. Blow it out before you leave the room.
