7 Survival Life Hacks That Could Save Your Life. Photo – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c23BcbnT2ng
We had so much fun watching this short but informative video by HouseholdHacker! It will help you think outside of the box when it comes to surviving. I’ve picked out some of my favorites and added some additional info. Video is below.
Candlelight from Tin Cans
What I love about this is that using an empty soda can will make use of the candle in a more efficient way! The can serves as protection against the wind and its shiny aluminum side will help in intensifying the heat, thereby giving you additional warmth on a cold night. Clever stuff.
How To Filter Water
This method of using a piece of cloth is just genius. It takes a bit of time but gravity definitely does its job well. It’s also very important to note that this is just a filter and will not remove microbes, You will still need to boil the water before drinking! Just because it looks clear doesn’t mean that there aren’t any bacteria or germs. Here’s another tip if you’re looking for cleaner water: Running water is typically better than still. Never consume water from stagnant pools and never from polluted sources.

Natural Mosquito Repellant
I don’t know about you but I HATE mosquitoes. If you live in a tropical country, there’s always a risk of getting dengue or malaria. It’s best that you protect your skin from exposure. If you’re having a barbeque party outside your house, placing a fresh sprig of rosemary and some dried basil will not only help keep mosquitoes away, it will also add a unique smokey flavor to your food.
Cereal Box Microwave
Wouldn’t it be great to cook your food in a cereal box? This cute method works well during sunny days because it makes use of solar heat. The aluminum foil makes it easier for the light to be concentrated within the box.
Needle And Leaf Compass
If you don’t have a compass (or a super smartphone) you can use this clever method to help you tell which way is north. The reason why you have to rub the needle with your shirt is that it creates static electricity. This step is important because your homemade compass won’t work properly without it.
Ok, here’s the video:

Thank you very much.
This is really great. IT reminds me of the mc Geyver TV series. IT is so funny and at the same time one can learn something. About the water do the heavy heavy metals left behind?
Very interesting information! Love that drinking water one.
thank you awesome information
I keep egg cartons by my dryer. Every time l clean the filter l put everything in the egg cups. When the carton is full l melt some wax and pour it over,let it set up. I collect this over time, when needed good fire starter.
If you need a portable heat source where you can’t build a fire, get a metal coffee can with something to cover the top (aluminum foil works)–or, if you’re planning/thinking ahead, you can get an empty quart paint can from a hardware store (you should be able to buy an empty one with the lid). Get a roll of toilet paper, remove the cardboard center, then stuff it inside the coffee/paint can. Saturate it with rubbing alcohol and light the top. The alcohol is the fuel and the toilet paper acts as the wick. It puts off quite a bit of heat, but the can should remain cool enough that you can move it if necessary. Make sure to watch the top for signs of burning–you DO NOT want that to happen!–so you can “refuel”.
Take a cotton ball. Coat it with vaseline. Use it for a good fire starter in the rough.
Emergency? Don’t have a candle? Take a crayon, pull the paper off and light.
Response to the crayon/candle. DO NOT pull the paper off- that’s the wick. Snip of any crayon to the paper level and light the paper.
Also for heat~ hand sanitizer will stay in the gel form and burn in a “blob” for easy blue flame heat. Place a small “blob” of hand sanitizer into a pot pie tin or small metal bowl. Light the gel. Probably would be good to keep a small container of gel in the car in case you get stranded. The gel stays put and it won’t splatter out of the container if blown on like alcohol would. It’s a low blue flame good for hand warming and heat.
On the Crayon Candle post: Use only CRAYOLA brand crayons! RoseARt is a softer wax and will blob all over the place. Snip off the tip and light the paper as the wick. will burn about 20 minutes per candle.
