That’s right folks! We’re giving you a free survival tip.
We’re not only giving you a free survival tip, this tip includes an object you would never imagine could be used for your survival…
Yes, that’s right. A tampon can be useful in your wilderness survival. We’ve covered some of the highlights of what a tampon can do for you.
Medical Bandage: Tampons are sterile, come individually packaged, and absorb liquid well. All great makings of a medical bandage. With a little tape, some manipulation of the tampons shape, and voilà, you have a bandage. You could also just shove them into any open wounds that need plugging.
Fire Tinder: Cotton makes great fire tinder. Break that tampon open and spread the fibers. They’ll catch the spark in no time and get your fire started.
Straw filter and water filter: You can use the tampon to filter water and get rid of all that gunky stuff. Stuff it in a water bottle or pour the water through it and it will catch any floaties. Use the tampon in its applicator as a straw to filter water directly from its source.
Tampons are truly amazing devices. A few other ideas are using a tampon as a wick for a candle, cordage, blow dart,blow tube, waterproof match case, fishing bobber, and the list could go on.
