    Hey folks, I'm looking for a liquid synthetic detergent which I can use to wash my gear/pot, my clothes, and myself while camping. My criteria are: unlikely to mess with sensitive skin (yes i'll test before going) won't leave my skin feeling weird after a sponge bath like some dish detergent...

    I am cleaning out my cabinet of canning supplies today. The rings were out of control, spilling all over out of the canister I had them in. Harbor Freight sells some really big carabiner clips (8 inches) that they intend for carrying plastic grocery sacks. Canning rings thread on them and they...

    I have a S&W 686 that I bought a month ago brand new. I looked at the trigger today and it is starting to blacken or oxidize. Its only on the trigger and firing hammer. Is that normal? I've not fired the gun yet ? See pic and thanks in advance.

    I recently traded my High Standard 1911A1 FS w/ammo for a like new Marlin 1895 45-70. The gun is stock w/a 22" blued barrel and 4 shot mag tube. It has a BSA Deerhunter 1.5 scope on it. I was wondering what I would need to add/change/customize in order to get it in fighting condition for an...

    Went to the store today to get some more lubricant for my "toys". I usually stick with rem-oil, but i came across the dupont teflon wax and figured i would give it a try. The can says it is okay to use on firearms, it seems it was originally made to use on bicycle/motorcycle chains. Anyway...

    I was cleaning the house today (washing dishes, vacuuming, laundry) and was thinking about TEOTWAWKI and what it would be like with no vacuum. How many sponges does one need? What happens after the 2 year supply of stocks vanish? Really makes one think about water conservation (laundry...

    Hygiene is very important since you do not want to eat rotten food and get sick but without the convenience of a sink, running water, and copious dish soap cleaning your gear can be a little more tricky. Wood ash is one suggestion. Also sand for abrading gunk off. You could just use a...

    I've heard that iodized salt has many uses. I have several packets left over from MREs, and I'm wondering what uses they may have. Whether the uses be medical, hygiene, or anything else, let me know! NOTE: I don't use iodized salt or any kind of salt for that matter very often in my food.
