Featuring... T-shirt water filter - Clean water is essential to survive, but what if the only water you can find is filthy? If you have 2 containers and a T-shirt, you’re in luck. Put the dirty water in one container, tear off a length of cloth from the t-shirt, run the cloth from one container to the other. Leave it a while and you’ll have clean, filtered water in what was the empty container. Make sure you boil it before you drink it though. Everyday Tinder - Apart from the app, you could use things like paper or cardboard to start a fire, but there are other great ways induce spontaneous combustion quickly and easily, here’s eggxactly what you need to do. Get a standard cardboard egg box and place a charcoal brick in each egg compartment. Shut the box, and light one corner. Once the cardboard has burnt away, the charcoal will be sufficiently lit for you to cook. Instant barbecue. Maybe you can fry the eggs? Replacement batteries - If you only have one battery, but you need 2 to operate your survival torch or a similar device you could try utilize a metal screw that's the same length as your battery. Put it into your device, along with the battery you already have. It should work perfectly. If you don’t have any screws that fit, you can do this hack with aluminium foil. Herbal mosquito repellent - If you’ve just burnt your mosquito repellent, you may need to make your own. If you're cooking outside and mosquitos are bothering you, trying burning some everyday household herbs, like thyme. Mosquitos don’t like strong smells and will soon scatter. If you can find any natural peppermint then even better. Tampon first aid - Even if you’re a guy, think about bringing some tampons on your next exploration trip. If you cut yourself badly, you’ll be pleased you did. Tampons are made to absorb moisture, so they're great for treating deep cuts. Plus they swell up over time to take the shape of the wound. They’re also small and lightweight, so you can bring lots of them. Condom canteen - Staying with stuff you can buy in the chemists, you need to bring non-lubricated condoms with you too. A condom canteen is a great way of holding a large amount of water in an emergency. Needle water compass - What are you going to do with all that water? Well, if you get completely lost you may need to made a compass. Here’s how you can do it with just some water, a needle and a leaf. Get the needle and rub it against your t-shirt a few times. Or, If you’ve got an analogue watch, try this. Lay your watch down on a flat surface and point the hour hand at the sun. Bisect the angle between the hour hand and the number 12 on your watch, the centre of the angle will point north. Bear in mind this only works in the northern hemisphere. Chapstick survival - It's not just for keeping your lips moist and blemish free. The humble chapstick has a myriad of uses in a survival situation. If you get a small cut, rub a chapstick on there. It will help the cut heal, and keep dirt out of there. Rub it on exposed skin to protect it from extreme cold or use it as sunscreen. Ramen stoves and crayon candles - Ramen noodles are small and light, and make a tasty snack when you’re exploring. But did you know you could also make a stove out of them. Here’s how. Saturate the noodle brick in a flammable liquid, maybe the mosquito repellent we mentioned earlier. Set light to it and you’ll have a nice flat fire, which will last for around 20 minutes. Uses for urine - In very hot places, you need to keep cool and stay hydrated or you’ll lose consciousness fast. If there’s no shade or water available, you need to make your own. One way to do this is to urinate on a t-shirt and tie it round your head. It will cool you down fast and give you a fresh burst of energy, even if it is a bit gross.
