Other uses for everyday stuff
Posted 16 May 2012 - 01:52 PM
As we tend to live in a throwaway society, stuff we might otherwise chuck out can have one or more uses when things get hairy.
A couple of examples, the bottle tops off Pepsi / coke bottles (or any soft drink) can double up as good, if somewhat slightly toxic firelighters. Discarded rope can be used for numerous things, not least as a wick to direct rainfall into a container, but also as a source of firelighter after being soaked in kerosene.
Speaking of used bottles, rinsed out they're obviosly good for water storage (short term), but you can cut them in half and use them as a funnel.
Back in the days of 35mm film (before digital cameras came along) the old plastic film tubes made excellent waterproof match containers - probably not much use nowadays but it might be worth using old tupperware storage to keep your matches / emergency lighters etc clean and dry.
Please add your own, unfortunately my imagination and memory are hazy at the moment cos I've only had 2 hours sleep (Tex Jr not very well )
