Everyday items and unusual ways they can be used for survival:None of these items are on this list! Nails - never know when you need to use it as an awl, fasterner, improvised weapon, plumb bob, etc. Jenn - Thank you, we are also developing a new survival tool we call a "Survival tinder maker" which includes a unique way to easily create wood shavings combined with a charcloth making container. Alfonzo - Provided you are in a rich shallow stream, fishing with inchers can be successful with fish as large as a modest catfish. You can remove radiation from any water source with this patented solar desalination product that uses no electricity. They are also creating an affiliate program where customers or anyone with a web presence can make and save money.You can leave them a message at their site. I would add in some chicken bouillon cubes, we had them included in a tiny survival kit at the Air Force Survival School, when they took us out to use our skills in the woods, our group of 7 only caught 3 small fish & used the bouillon cubes to make a fish stew.
We know survival does not begin or end with the gear and tools you have at hand, but the knowledge you have in mind. I looked the gun up and it's called the Garcia Bronco, and pics do in fact show it broke down.
But if one is using it to shoot at a bird, it should not be a huge issue if yours is not 100%. October 7, 2014 by The Survival Mom 20 Comments Everyone is slightly different in the things they need and we all find different unusual, cool things to include in our preps. An Altoids tin with a small plastic container of denatured alcohol to make a small, portable stove. A Land Shark Bag is a patented instant emergency shelter that keeps you warm, dry, and visible to search & rescue crews for miles, on land or on the water. Activated charcoal is commonly prescribed at the emergency room to absorb toxins in the stomach. Popcorn is filling and a fun snack to bring out for a little taste of comfort for the kids, especially if you pop it on the stove top or over a fire (not microwaved). I have an entire 5 gallon bucket dedicated to just hair doodads:  hair brushes, combs, barrettes, bobby pins, and hair ponies.

Keep reading to find some strange survival uses for regular items.The air force taught us a few tricks, as well as years of experience and being forced to survive with the limited tools available. We did think of the cotton balls but left them out because they are somewhat common already to use as a survival tool.
There's no filters to replace, can be taken anywhere and extracts pure water from any contaminated water source. The Spanish Aitor Jungle King Knives (I have a JKII) have one built into the sheath, and it does work. Rather than having one person create a list of their favorite unusual items, this has items from the Survival Mom Writing Team members and Survival Mom Radio hosts.
That could be books to read for bedtime, a board game, chargers for their electronics, favorite music, a blanket or pillow…. Come join me on my journey to becoming more prepared to handle everyday emergencies and worst case scenarios.
The SteriPEN purifier is the only portable water purifier that uses ultraviolet (UV) light to destroy waterborne microbes.
You'd be surprised what innovative ways you can use almost anything to give yourself an edge in an emergency situation, or even accomplishing daily tasks for that matter.Pencil Sharpener - No, not for note taking.
It removes radiation, fluoride, salt, pesticides, bacteria, dirt and other contaminants from any water. If you pack a rifled .22 LR insert and a 100rds or so of ammo in addition to some shotgun shells, you ought be set for a while.
However when you leave the all round survival gun and branch off into SHTF and BOB firearms, you are correct in whatever your mind can dream of!
We have four kids, and one of the quickest ways to clear them out is to have them eat a few prunes.
I’ve even had success with soaking it and cooking it slow and low like you would dried beans. For those stores that are open, many can help you if you pay with cash because they won’t be able to run credit or debit cards. Consider adding work gloves for elementary and middle school kids, bags of cheap gloves with rubber-coated palms (in more than one size, and some double-coated), Mechanix gloves, gardening gloves, dish-washing gloves, nitrile gloves, and even fingerless work gloves. Snares, fishing line, stashing a food cache, rappelling down a cliff, bivouacking above the forest floor.

I love spicy foods and can’t bear the thought of eating bland rice and beans in a future worst case scenario. Whether your source is a woodland brook or an overseas hotel tap, SteriPEN sterilizes clear water by destroying viruses, bacteria and protozoa—including Giardia and Cryptosporidium—in seconds. If you reside in an EU member state besides UK, import VAT on this purchase is not recoverable.
Just remember: the odds are that you are just delivering your gear to someone who out survives you! If you keep some predictability of routine, your kids will not feel as scared or frightened during disasters, power outages or bad weather. Also, if using for congestion, you can rub it on the soles of your feet instead of or as well as your chest.
What things did you put in yours that you found useful but TV survivalists like Bear Grylls would turn his nose up at? Instead of a pencil sharpener, let's call it a "Survival Fire Tinder Maker."Inchers (Firecrackers) - These loud miniature explosives can be a useful signaling device by obviously making loud noises, but less obvious are the ability to cauterize wounds, help start fires, and catch fish. I've thought about selling it, but the money I'd get wouldn't compensate at all for not having it anymore, if that makes sense. That's right, go fishing with fire crackers!Plastic Wrap (Saran) - This is primarily for an advanced first aid technique, particularly for chest wounds that puncture the lung.
Some type of plastic wrap or similar material can save your life by sealing a 'sucking chest wound'. See our first aid for more details about this procedure.Contractor Bag - Multiple uses here. The 2 main uses include a water container or small shelter, either in the form of a jacket, poncho, overhead rain fly or ground tarp. Also, if you know cody Lundin, he'll tell you this is a good way to store a carcass.Bandana - You can use a bandana for lots of different things, in fact I could probably write a whole other article entitled "30 Survival Uses for a Bandana". Can also hold water, use it to make char cloth, construct a hat, repair or create electrical circuits, and use as signaling device by reflecting sunlight.Other strange items that are already well known:Condoms - Dental Floss - Ziploc BagsDo you have more ideas?! If you have a great idea and we add it to the list, maybe we'll give you a special coupon code that you can redeem for a free product!
