Re: Antibac hand gel: substituting with diluted disinfectant?

The alcohol is what makes it evaporate so your hands dry quickly. You could probably use the disinfectant but I can't imagine it'll be nice for your hands, have you looked online for the bulk hand gels that they have in hospitals? You can then squirt a bit into the little bottles and probably save a...

Re: do you have any strange health remedies?

Those blue plasters are rubbish, they never stick.

Electrical tape does actually make a pretty good plaster on its own, used to use it all the time back when I was a theatre lighting tech as I always had a roll in my pocket.

Re: What Preps are you doing this week? Part 6.

Re: Torch

LED lenser are very good, I have one that I use for lamping.

For EDC I have a fake nightcore tube, I had a real one that stopped working after six months or so which annoyed me so I buy the fake ones now, they last the same amount of time but they're a fifth of the price.

Re: Sometimes

Powdered milk is one of those things that I just wont use if it gets too old.

Usually doesnt taste or smell bad but it can be pretty nasty if it's gone.

Re: Boil in the bags meals

I thought they were pretty tasty as they go, I've had a lot of prepared things in retort pouches over the years and they aren't half bad.
