  • Useful Garbage

    So here http://www.myprepperforum.com/forum/...ness/1719-fire we're talking about ways to make fire and I was thinking about this fire method https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-C0YagA8IVc and I remembered that I had done this some time ago but not with picks. So what did I use? Bread bag clips. Just throw some of these babies in your gear and you got a great little fire starter, that costs you nothing. Another use for these clips is as clothes pins for light items like tee shirts.

    Anyway what other items of trash can we use for gear? Lets get a huge list going, with all the ways we can use each thing. Thanks

    JUST CAUSE THEY SAY IT DON'T MAKE IT TRUE And if it comes from Info Wars or Alex Jones, it's probably BULLSHIT!

    How about dryer lint? and even lint from the clothes you happen to be wearing at the time?

    One other thing we used as tinder the last time we started a fire, was toilet paper. I always keep some in my backpack.

      Well if you have ever had to wipe with leaves, I wouldn't call toilet paper garbage But Dryer lint is amazing firestarter. What I like to do is stuff it into toilet paper rolls and wax over both ends and the roll itself to make it water proof. Then when I need a fire, I just make a small hole with my knife and give a spark from my ferro.Walla.

          How about a pocket shot out of Gatorade bottle tops, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0jdI65lNuaQ you can reinforce the balloon doing this, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-TBaErpkyW8 you may think me ridiculous but I carry one of these in my pocket whenever I'm out. Some metal bbs carried in the closed cap version and I have an inconspicuous weapon, that takes up very little space. It not a substitute for my main stay firearm or even my backup weapon but will work in a pinch, for hunting small birds.
          Even if you don't make it for serious survival, make it for fun and give it to your kids to shoot, with super vision of course.

            Cardboard toilet paper tubes or paper towel tubes are also great for wrapping with duct tape, electrical tape or both. I slid a paper towel tube into my BOB that is wrapped on one end with duct tape and on the other with electrical tape. Obviously you lose the section that is taped to the cardboard but the rest comes off easy and is still usable.

              I'm assuming this would be for firestarter kinda like the dryer lint tube I talked about? Not sure how you plan on using it, since you didn't say? Or were you referring to the pocket shot and using the tube, in place of the bottle cap? If so I think the bottle cap is better for it's durability. Anyway you might want to clarify your post a bit

              I just realized your talking about as a holder for the duct tape or electrical tap. For me, a expired credit card works for that. Makes a very small package and you can use all the tape
