some of us have water sources available to us that are always going to be there and at our ready. Unfortunately tp is an expense and we may not always have the money. sure it is only a couple bucks a week but in SHTF situation i may well need that couple of bucks to buy something a bit more essential than tp or baby wipes...Toilet paper is a disposable item after use.
A family cloth needs water to clean. Water is too valuable in my opinion to waste cleaning cloths instead of using toilet paper.
great question!... i have no clue, i am only know toilet paper and corn cobs and your handI was just wondering about this topic the other day. Neither Survivor Man or Man vs. Wild addresses this question (not that those programs are where I get all my information, but you'd think it would come up) . Bear Gryls often utilizes he own urine for a variety of purposes, but neither he nor Les talk about good wiping material when your in the wild and without. What is safe to use in a pinch? (Pun intended) Supposing you want to keep all your clothing so rags aren't an option. If your near water, that shouldn't really be a problem, as you can just wash. But what if your in an area with no water? If you have to walk out of an area, a sore tush can really effect your progress. Whats safe to use say in the desert? Or in a forest? Sand? Cactus? Leaves? What leaves are safe for such nefarious activities?
The poop-tubes are described in the book .. and many other great ideas!! I would highly recommend buying the book if at all possible. I have made several of the poop-tubes .. so I will give you a quick description.Well, I can't get any info about the poop tubes from the link provided so can you give me a breif explanation as to what these are and how they are built? It would be greatly appreciated!
