    So I'm curious if there are any brave souls willing to share their plans for wiping in a post apocalypse world. Personally I am not stock piling tp. If teotwawki was guaranteed or if I had unlimited space and funds maybe I would. Since I don't I won't. I've always wondered what the natives used...

    Hello I've been a lurker of the forum for quite some time now. There are some really smart folks on here that know their stuff, which is why I would like to ask this question to you all: (I used the search bar) In a post-SHTF situation, would you feel better knowing you had stored away a large...

  4. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    While on a recent camping trip with some friends, I started taking mental notes about the possible issues we could have after SHTF. I like to go on camping trips, or trips away from home, and then take notes about the issues that we faced. Safe drinking water - life as we know it can not exist...

    My Shower kit for the BOB. When Katrina hit and many families were forced into emergency shelters the food and water and cots were provided. There were shower facilities but the condition was you have to provide your own shower gear. If I am ever forced to use my BOB it will probably mean I...

    Lets talk about ways to boost morale after a disaster. A disaster has hit, your family has been forced to leave the home, morale is down. Now what? There are a few subtle things that people can do to get the morale of the group back up. 1. A good hot meal - not a cold meal, not a cheap...

    Mods - feel free to move this if appropriate. I was reading through the threads and also the disease management in Pakistan with the recent floods and thought I would find a short and readable piece on that topic. I found the following, printed and will laminate it to put with my other...

    Personal hygiene is one of the topics that I take into consideration everyday. I wear contacts - everytime I put my contacts in, I think about if my hands are clean or not. My daily routine is - get up, shower, put contacts in - that way my hands are clean from the shower. My personal hygiene...

    So if the SHTF then what would you use for Toothpaste, Body Wash, Shampoo, Conditioner (if you use that stuff), Deodorant, Hand Soap, etc. What would you replace all these things with for each? Like brick for toothpaste (they did in the 1700's :D:). Just thought it would be a interesting...

    It'll clean your hands, saving water, and it makes a great fire starter. Purell is 62% alcohol and burns very well.

    I've got a question... If things get bad and we go to our BOLs; what do we do about laundry? It's a modern convenience that most of us take for granted. But frankly it will become a hygeine issue and must be dealt with. How have you guys planned on dealing with this issue?

    No water to flush. So what to do? A simple solution is to clear your toilet bowl. Rinse it with pine sol or some such and insert a plastic bag. Then put in another plastic bag, as a liner, and use it for solid waste. Do not use it for liquid waste. This makes an excellent improvised...
  13. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    This is a thought that runs through my mind at least once a day. After prepping for almost (1) full year I feel reasonably confident my family won't go hungry well past one year and I have enough to buy valuable time. I have the problems of food, water/purification, supplies of all types...
  14. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Sorry if this has been discussed already. But what supplies and methods are you going to implement for cleanliness for long term SHTF? Sure there are going to be cold showers or sponge baths. I am curious about what I can do to keep clean so that I don't suffer from infections or ailments from...

    http://www.lehmans.com/shopping/product/detailmain.jsp?itemID=1600&itemType=PRODUCT&RS=1&keyword=23305 Wife bought one of these for $3 at a yard sale. It's never been used. Gonna try it out. It would beat the heck out of the ole' washboard, if it works:rolleyes:
  16. Wilderness Survival, Hiking and Camping Forum
    What is your personal hygiene while on a hiking / camping trip? Personally I like to bring my tooth brush, hand sanitizer, and some little personal size shampoo bottles. I wear contacts, and I usually keep these items in my contact case - so its just a grab and go kinda thing.
