Did you know that household bleach can be used to purify water? If you did know, then congratulations, you are probably a prepper.  If you did not know this then by all means…please read the following:

1.    Before you attempt this, please make sure you have the ratio correct and do more research! Remember, question everything on the internet. The ratio of bleach to water is 2 drops of bleach to purify 1 liter of water.  Do not forget to use unscented bleach only!  We prefer to boil water but if you don’t have a means of doing that, then this is another alternative.

2.    If your Zippo lighter has ran out of fuel, that’s okay.  You can still use the cotton that is inside of it and the spark from the flint to light it up! A spark from a regular lighter that has also ran out of fuel can also be used.  All it takes is a spark.

3.    Who would have thought that a simple item like a disposable rain poncho can be used for multiple things? For example, it can be used not only as a rain coat, but also as a makeshift shelter.  You can also use it to collect water and make a solar still to gather a purify water from the sea.

4.    Glowsticks are not just for going to raves, you can actually tie them to a 3 foot string/rope and twirl it in the air so that rescue helicopters can spot you in the dark!

5.    Do not throw animal entrails away. They can be used as bait for fishing and in traps.  Just make sure that you process it away from your camp.  You wouldn’t want predators such as bears visiting you because they smell food.

6.    Always make sure to carry with you some aluminum/tin foil.  There are many uses for this such as shaping a cup or potential pot with it and boiling water or lay it flat on wet ground so that you can start a fire on top of it. 

7.    Use the top of a can to make a fish hook.  Here is a picture to demonstrate how it should be cut.

8.    Carry at least two spare socks in your survival kit.  You can actually use them not only to keep you warm but also to filter water!  They will help you get dirt and sediment out of your water supply.

9.    Did you know that termites, crickets and worms are edible? Yes indeed!  Termites have a lot of calories, about 6 per gram but they are hard to get to.  We would recommend trying to catch crickets or worms instead which have fewer calories but are much easier to catch.  By the way, all of these, especially worms, can be used as bait for fishing.

10.    Make sure to secure a location where you can bug out to.  Establish a plan of action with your family and make sure to tell them not to disclose the location to anybody else, ever.  If people knew you had a “secret” bunker full of supplies then you will most likely be raided.  When people are desperate, they are more than willing to do almost anything!
