Surviving With Q-Tips

Surviving With Q-Tips

Your ability to survive depends heavily on your will to survive and ability to use survival knowledge. However, resourcefulness will help you tremendously — and, of course, you need some skill as knowledge only gets you so far. Check out how a Q-tip can be used to make a fire and how you can improve the practice.

Now, that’s pretty cool! You could always make a pile of Q-tips to help the fire along, but sometimes you can only find one. However, there are plenty of ways you can use them while surviving.

For example, you can use a Q-tip as a makeshift eye-dropper to accurately measure bleach or iodine for purifying water. Of course, you could always use the cotton swab for its intended purpose of cleaning the outer parts of your ears; after all, good hygiene is important.

You also use Q-tips for cleaning other items such as your firearms, HAM radio, electronic devices and other hard to reach areas. Or, you can create a candle from a bundle of them. Simply stick them in the ground or in a container full of sand; you can even place them in Crisco. Check out other ways Crisco can be used for survival and see how you can make a DIY candle with a Q-tip and tube of ChapStick.
