Survival Uses for Chapstick
When packing up a survival kit, the design should contain necessary items within space-effective reasoning. One thing that many people try to include our items that are multi-purpose and, if possible, on the smaller side of the scale physically. Containers that can act as bowls, food holders, or even another survival kit within yours are some of the most common, but have you ever considered chapstick?
Lip balm tubes are relatively tiny, and unbeknownst to many, contain properties and uses that go well over our heads. Used mainly for chapped lips, there are well over twenty different uses for chapstick, making it a wonderful survival kit addition.
Given their durability and size, it’s not hard to throw them in with the rest of the kit, and with their ability to help out in anything from their original purpose to securing small holes in tents or fabric, or even keeping metal from rusting, chapstick can benefit you greatly under many different circumstances.
Read on to learn the various different ways that chapstick can prove itself as more than just a lip moistener, and purchase a few tubes during your next trip to the super market.
