Throughout your home, there are simple everyday items you likely take for granted that can be turned into useful survival tools.
Here are nine:
1. Aluminum Foil
Aluminum foil is known for having dozens of uses around the home, and those uses can translate to survival. Assuming you purchase the heavy duty version, aluminum foil is also re-usable. With foil in a survival situation, you can use it as a signal, you can hang pieces around your survival garden to keep pests and birds away, or you can cook food in it over, or in, a fire.
2. Dental Floss
We’ve all been to the dentist’s office and reminded to floss our teeth. Buying floss is good for dental hygiene, but if you’re still not convinced you need to buy some, consider its survival uses. Dental floss is durable enough to be used as a thin cord in survival, such as setting snares or using as a fishing line.
