Things We May Not Think About Before The Collapse

Emergency Sanitation

After a disaster or collapse, water and sewage lines may be disrupted, and you
may need to improvise emergency sanitation facilities.

Always have basic sanitation supplies on hand.
2 Medium-sized plastic buckets with tight lid or 5 gallon buckets with potty seat
1 Plastic garbage bags and ties (heavy duty)
1 Household chlorine bleach
1 Soap, liquid detergent
1 Toilet paper
1 Towelettes
Have some sand or saw dust to put on top of waste

To build a makeshift toilet…
If sewage lines are broken but the toilet bowl is usable, place a
garbage bag inside the bowl. If the toilet is completely backed up,
make your own. Line a medium-sized bucket with a garbage bag,
and make a toilet seat out of two boards placed parallel to each
other across the bucket. An old toilet seat will also work. Or buy the 5 gallon potty kit with the bags, bucket and seat with lid(two would be better.

To sanitize waste…
After each use, pour a disinfectant such as
bleach into the container. This will help avoid infection and stop
the spread of disease. Cover the container tightly when not in use. You can also use sand or saw dust with a powdered mix of cheap beach base comet or Ajax to fight smell and disease.

To dispose of waste…
Bury garbage and human waste to avoid the spread of disease by
rats and insects. Dig a pit 3 to 4 feet deep and at least 75 feet
downhill or away from any well, spring or water supply.
If the garbage cannot be buried immediately you should place
the can outside until it can be buried. It's best to empty the buckets two or more times a day.

Water Substitutes for Cleansing

Keeping clean is essential to good health. Because water is so
precious and should be reserved for drinking purposes, consider
other ways to wash the body.
1 Rubbing alcohol
1 Lotions containing alcohol
1 Shaving lotion
1 Face creams and lotions
1 Towelettes
1 Wet wash cloth—Use a wet wash cloth to clean teeth, wash
face, comb hair, and wash body.
1 Makeshift shower—Use a spray bottle to shower.
You will have to use water at some point because soap and water is the best way to get clean.

The best choice is a solution of 1 part liquid chlorine bleach to 10
parts water. Other commercial disinfectants include HTH, or
calcium hypochlorite, which is available at swimming pool supply
stores, and powdered, chlorinated lime, which is available at
building supply stores.

Intestinal Ailments
Consuming contaminated water and food can cause diarrhea,
poisoning, and intestinal diseases. Protect against diseases.
1 Keep body, hands, and cooking and eating utensils clean.
1 Use proper plates or eat from the original food containers if
water is not available for washing dishes.
1 Wash and peel all fruits and vegetables.
1 Keep all food in covered containers.
1 Prepare only as much as will be eaten at each meal.

Controlling Rodents and Insects
1 Keep living area clear of debris, garbage, refuse and body
1 When possible, repair holes to keep out rodents.
1 Household insecticides will work in small and enclosed areas.

  1. Great ideas.

    In our Survival Bible, we've also got instruction for making a "natural" toilet when no buckets/bags are available.

    There are plenty of instructions to be found on the internet. Dysentery is one of the leading causes of death around the world. You can die fairly easily if you get dysentery and don't have the means to cure it.

    Better not to get it at all!

    A good guide from UNICEF. These ideas are for large scale emergencies, but can easily be scaled down for single family use.

    They're part of a NWO organization, but on this subject, they know their shit (sorry, I couldn't pass that one up)!
