September Preparedness Month (27)

Cleanliness is next to Godliness, or so the adage goes. During my backpacking years, wet wipes played an important role in feeling clean, and providing a general sense of well being in the back country. For under $2.00 you can purchase enough wet wipes to keep a person feeling fairly clean for about a week. This also includes using it as TP.

Today's small expenditure is to purchase a package of wet wipes for power outages, go home kit, or other uses.

I can not stress enough the general sense of well being with a cleaner body, brushed teeth, and a cup of coffee in the morning.

One task every day, one small task....for a better prepared community - K


  1. Will do. Hard to keep stuff in an uninsulated house that never stays at their recommended temperature, and ground that is too wet for a cellar, but I appreciate all your articles this month, K.
    Be safe and God bless you all.

  2. Less than ideal storage temperatures reduce the shelf life of these goods. In your situation, I'd probably go with canned goods and pay attention to the "best buy" dates. Most warehouses are not air conditioned or climate controlled, and remember that the food doesn't magically go bad one day after the "use by" date. It'll take years to slower lose nutritional value, color, and taste.

    Be Safe, and thanks for commenting so much over the last month. It's nice to know that I'm not mindlessly chanting a mantra onto the internet.

    1. Thanks for the extra information. I can definitely do canned goods and I always try to rotate.

      Do you think spices are best freeze dried? I know most are, but the ones I buy in the store go stale pretty quickly.

      God bless.
