How To Replace a Kerosene Heater Wick

Hi Everyone!

Just in time for winter!

In this video I show you how to replace the wick on a standard barrel type convection kerosene heater. I actually own three of these now and love them, they are easy to care for and are great for backup!


Common brands include; Kero Sun, Kero Heat, Porta-Heat,  Dyna-glow etc. But there are many, many of them out there! For my favorite see the link in ‘Resources’ below.



Here is the place to get your wicks! –> The Wick Shop 

If you need a heater here is my current favorite –> Kero Heat

There are many options, here is my video discussing them –> Backup Heating Options

CO detector (get these even if you don’t use this type of heater, they can save your life!) –> CO Detector

Don’t forget about Oil Lamps!–>  How to use an oil lamp. Using an oil lamp is a rewarding and valuable skill!


I hope this helps to get those heaters out there ready for winter!





It may seem at times like you have ‘done it all’ but there are many new crafts and lost skills out there for all of us! This is my mission!
