Aerosol cans have long been one of those items that there is simply no way to functionally repurpose. They’re pressurized and will explode if they’re heated, even if all of the aerosol is gone because there’s nowhere for the air in the can to escape to.
But several artists independently became tired of throwing so many cans in a landfill that they came up with some alternate uses. And at least a couple of us waste-wary homesteading types did, too.
But before we get started and somebody decides to flame me for suggesting going against manufacturer instructions and opening a spray can, let me say one thing. Hey y’all … watch this! Just kidding, but seriously, I feel the need to start with the warning in order to make our legal team happy. You’re doing this at your own risk.
Whether you are planning to go camping, do some yard work, or live outdoors, you’ll need appropriate clothing. From extreme temperatures to injuries, health risks, and even dangers posed by other people, these specific fabrics and garment will keep you safe.
Contrary to popular belief, you do not need to buy new clothes or even ones that are pre-made, and stockpile them for a crisis situation.
Focus on these 10 questions about material and fit, and you can easily find good quality clothing that will remain in good condition over time.
Everybody uses lists, it’s a fact. Whether we like it or not, we need them to keep things organized, or to remember and prioritize activities. You can’t skip them while prepping, so let’s make use of them here too.
I’ve gathered a few tops and lists to remember about different aspects of prepping, after stumbling upon other survival websites this week. And what do you think I’ve came up with in the end? You guessed: another list. Here it is!
If you’re a serious survivalist and most of all a DIY aficionado, you probably know that saying: if it doesn’t work nice and proper, bring the duct tape, Sally!
Duct tape is that kind of a “jack of all trades” piece of survival gear that can be found in any respectable prepper’s paraphernalia, along with paracord, tarp, a Toblerone candy bar (just kidding) and all that jazz.
Joking aside, duct tape can be described as the quintessential multipurpose survival-item and even if you don’t have it in your EDC survival bag (though you should) or in your bug out bag or whatever, you probably have some at home.
