Waterproofing your items can improve their luster and extend their lifespan. Read on and watch the video to find out how to waterproof fabric using wax, commercial spray, and other common items.
1. Waterproofing sprays and seam sealers – Wash the fabric thoroughly before spraying. You can find waterproofing sprays and seam sealers at an outdoor / camping supply.
2. Laundry detergent and alum – Mix 1 pound of laundry detergent with 2 gallons of hot water in a large container then soak the fabric in the mixture until it is completely saturated. Hang the fabric to air-dry in the sun and wait until completely dry. Combine 1/2 pound of alum with 2 gallons of hot water in a second container then soak the fabric again in alum powder solution for at least 2 hours.
3. Turpentine and soybean oil – Mix 1 cup of soybean oil with 4 ounces of turpentine in a plastic container. Spread the fabric out onto a flat surface then using a paintbrush, brush the mixture onto the fabric using a long, straight, even stroke. Keep brushing the mixture onto the fabric until everything is covered. This mixture will cause your fabric to darken and will stain porous surfaces such as wood and concrete. If you are worried about this, you might want to protect your work surface with plastic first.
4. Iron-on vinyl – Purchase some iron-on vinyl from a fabric store and cut the vinyl so that it fits your fabric. Set the vinyl, sticky-side-down onto the fabric’s surface and cover with the paper backing. Make sure that the shiny side of the paper is facing down, and that the paper is covering the vinyl entirely. Lastly, run an iron over the paper.
5. Rubbing wax onto fabric – Use pure beeswax for this, without any additives because anything else may contain harmful chemicals. Rub the beeswax across the fabric in both directions and heat the item with a hairdryer for about five minutes. Set the item to cure in a warm, dry place for 24 hours. After this time, the waxed item will be ready to use.
6. Linseed oil – Apply the linseed oil onto the fabric in a thick layer. Make sure that the fabric is completely saturated with the oil. You can apply the oil with a wide bristle paintbrush or with a rag. Wait 30 minutes before wiping any oil residue off with a clean rag. Let the fabric dry for 24 hours, then repeat the process twice.

This Crazy Off Grid Device Literally Makes Drinkable Water From Fresh Air:
According to NASA, the U.S. is expecting a 100-YEAR LONG MEGADROUGHT.
It's already begun. Ask the farmers in California. They know.
Every survivalist knows that water is of critical importance. You NEED an independent water source that you can count on!
As an interesting "survival rehearsal" - imagine that you turned the tap on right now and nothing came out. How long would you last?
But what if there was another water source literally hidden in plain sight. That's right, I'm talking about the atmosphere!
The amazing thing about getting water from the natural moisture in the air... is that it is ALWAYS available.
This gives you real water security!

😳 What Tinnitus Does To Your Brain Cells (And How To Stop It)
After 47 years of studies and countless brain scans done on more than 2,400 tinnitus patients, scientists at the MIT Institute found that in a shocking 96% of cases, tinnitus was actually shrinking their brain cells.
As it turns out, tinnitus and brain health are strongly linked.
Even more interesting: The reason why top army officials are not deaf after decades of hearing machine guns, bombs going off and helicopter noises…
Is because they are using something called "the wire method", a simple protocol inspired by a classified surgery on deaf people from the 1950s...
Most People Don't Have The Guts To Try This:
An amazing discovery in an abandoned house in Austin, Texas: A lost book of amazing survival knowledge, believed to have been long vanished to history, has been found in a dusty drawer in the house which belonged to a guy named Claude Davis.
Remember... back in those days, there was no electricity... no refrigerators... no law enforcement... and certainly no grocery store or supermarkets... Some of these exceptional skills are hundreds of years of old and they were learned the hard way by the early pioneers.
We've lost to history so much survival knowledge that we've become clueless compared to what our great grandfathers did or built on a daily basis to sustain their families.
Neighbors said that for the last couple of years Claude has tried to unearth and learn the forgotten ways of our great-grandparents and claimed to have found a secret of gargantuan proportions. A secret that he is about to reveal together with 3 old teachings that will change everything you think you know about preparedness:
What REALLY Happens When You Bury a Shipping Container? (Hint: It's A Bit Crazy...)
Shipping containers are all the rage - but if you are thinking about buying one, you MUST watch this video first:
Do not, I repeat do NOT do what these lunatics did! Can you spot the "fatal mistake" they made?
There's a general belief that if you bury a shipping container you can create an awesome root cellar / storm shelter / survival bunker.
But is a shipping container strong enough to handle the pressure?
Watch the video to see what happens:
I Can't Help Showing This Off:
If you haven't heard of Claude Davis yet do yourself a huge favor and watch this video.
One of the smartest guys I ever had the pleasure of meeting, Claude set-up a unique prepping system that changed his life forever.
I already tried it myself and let me tell... you I was completely blown away... His surprising tactics could make your life easier and give you the peace of mind you deserve.
Don't just take my word for it... watch his short video and decide for yourself.
