Converting a regular toilet to an emergency toilet is easy, cheap and could bring some normality into any disaster situation.

Hygiene will be paramount to survival alongside food and water… Take advantage of having a toilet and keep the bucket at bay for a while!

Instructions

  1. Shut off the water supply.
  2. Flush the water out of the bowl, it should not refill.
  3. Line the bowl, under the seat, with a 13-gallon plastic bag.
  4. Duct tape all of the edges.
  5. Add a few cups of kitty litter to the bag (read my other article on why stockpiling kitty litter is very useful) or simply pour some bleach in the bottom of it. Alternatively, you can use compost or plain old dirt from your garden.
  6. Have twist ties handy for daily disposal.
  7. Cover the entire toilet with a 30-gallon bag to control the odors.

You can also make a portable toilet out of a 5-gallon bucket or a turned over traffic cone!

 

Sounds funny but sitting on something while going to the toilet will make you feel more human and less an animal. 🙂
