survival uses for t-shirts

There are a surprising amount of survival uses for t-shirts. Unfortunately, most preppers don’t know what these are. And this not knowing can be a real detriment when a crisis ensues.

Thankfully, we’ve got a few ways to use these ordinary pieces of fabric in order to get through an emergency. And once you see what these are, you’ll want to stock up on t-shirts ASAP to get through the next crisis.

Without further adieu, here are…

15 Survival Uses For T-Shirts

Head Protection

Want to avoid sunburn? Cut a t-shirt near the seam, making it one large piece. Then lay the fabric over your head and place a head on top to secure the fabric in place.

The t-shirt will cover your head and neck, and protect these from the sun’s harmful rays.


Close off the head/arm holes in the t-shirt, and then stuff the shirt with leaves. You can even stuff two shirts and connect them. Either way, you’ve got a pillow for the night.

Bring Wood

Cut the shirt’s seam so it becomes one large piece of fabric. Then lay wood pieces onto the shirt, and wrap it up in the fabric. This allows you to carry the wood anywhere.

Attach Supplies

If you want to attach small survival tools to your bag, you can do so with a t-shirt. Cut the shirt into strips, and then loop the strip through the MOLLE system on your pack. Tie the ends to a survival tool and you’ll have a hands-free way of carrying extra stuff.

DIY Pot Holder

Don’t burn your hands on hot pots and pans. Instead, wrap a t-shirt around a pot handle to protect your hand from the heat. You can also lay it underneath and use it as a pot holder.

Stop Overheating

To reduce your body temperature, roll the t-shirt into a long tube, and pour ice cold water on it. Then wrap the shirt around your neck. This will help you keep moving in the sweltering heat.

Get Found By Rescuers

Use bright-colored t-shirts to help people see you in an emergency (you can use these as trail markers, or you can wave them around to be seen by planes, ships, and rescuers.

Start A Fire

T-shirts make great kindling if you need to get a fire going. Cut the shirt into small pieces, and use those for the fire. This will help you salvage the rest of the shirt until you need it.

Keep A Low Profile

If you need to lie low, wearing neutral color shirts like brown, dark green and tan can prevent you from being seen by the enemy. Wear these with green/khaki pants.

Clean Your Guns

Use an old t-shirt to clean out your guns, survival tools, pots & pans, and more.

Treat Your Wounds

Need to stop the bleeding? Lay a clean shirt over the wound (or lay a few shirts on top of each other). Tie the ends around the body part, and allow the fabric to soak up the blood. Replace as needed.

Save Your Bum

Our backsides take a lot of abuse in our day-to-day lives considering how long most of us sit every single day. And in a crisis, this sitting will likely be on uncomfortable rocks and tree stumps (or the cold, hard ground). Save your bum by making a sit-upon. Tie off the openings of a t-shirt and stuff it with old clothes (and other soft things).

This will give you a cushion you can sit on.

Save Your Lungs

Cut the t-shirt into one large piece of material. Then hold it over your face to protect your nose and mouth from dust, wind, smoke, etc. You can also tie it behind your head to keep it in place.

Make A Torch

First wrap a t-shirt around the end of a stick. Then douse a t-shirt in kerosene (or other flammable material) and set the shirt on fire. Now you’ve got a torch that will light your way.

Rustle Up Some Grub

Want some dinner? Cut a t-shirt into strips, and use it to tie a snare together.

You can also use that t-shirt to help you make a fish/crab trap. Check out the how-to video below.

Mayorkas in Hot Seat For Allegedly Encouraging Illegals to Vote for Biden


During a recent congressional budget hearing, DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas found himself under intense scrutiny by Rep. Dan Bishop (R-NC) concerning a deeply troubling allegation. The Heritage Foundation’s Oversight Project reported the discovery of a flyer, purportedly from Resource Center Matamoros, which brazenly encourages migrants to vote for President Joe Biden, promising, “We need another four years of his term to stay open.” This inflammatory material, allegedly found by independent journalists in Mexico and reported by Muckraker, raises grave concerns about the integrity of our electoral process.

The flyer, still unverified by mainstream media outlets and missing from the Resource Center Matamoros’s official resources, points to a potential scandal of significant proportions. The implications are severe—suggesting a concerted effort to manipulate U.S. elections by influencing the migrant population, a group explicitly ineligible to participate in our voting system.

Rep. Bishop confronted Mayorkas directly: “The Heritage Foundation Oversight Project has released this document that is allegedly a flyer distributed by a non-governmental organization in Mexico called the Resource Center Matamoros … which is said to read, in part, if translated, ‘Reminder to vote for President Biden when you are in the United States. We need another four years of his term to stay open,'” illustrating a critical lapse in border security and immigration enforcement under the current administration.

Mayorkas’s response was both dismissive and inadequate, stating that “individuals who are not citizens of the United States cannot vote in federal elections” and claiming that DHS does not oversee election enrollments but merely enforces border policies. However, this response starkly highlights the core issue—the Biden administration’s lax enforcement and oversight policies, which have allowed millions, including two million undocumented ‘got-aways,’ to potentially exploit loopholes in the electoral registration process.

Secretary Mayorkas and the Biden administration must be held accountable for their role in what appears to be a flagrant disregard for the laws that safeguard both our borders and our ballots. This incident is not an isolated blip but a symptom of a broader, more disturbing trend under Secretary Mayorkas’s DHS: a deliberate softening of immigration policies that seem designed to favor political over practical interests.

It’s imperative for the integrity of our democratic process that thorough investigations are conducted. If migrants are indeed being instructed, implicitly or explicitly, to support a particular political outcome, such actions must be met with the full force of the law. We must demand more than lackluster assurances from our leaders; we need concrete actions and transparent accountability to restore faith in our immigration system and electoral integrity.

Biden’s Blunders: Scripted Leadership in Crisis Times?


Once again, President Biden has been caught on camera, not trusting his own words during crucial moments. During a recent Oval Office meeting with Iraq’s Prime Minister, while the world reels from a violent missile and drone attack by Iran on Israel, Biden couldn’t step away from his pre-written scripts.

Photographs reveal that Biden, aged 81, resorted to a detailed cheat sheet, which embarrassingly included all-caps stage directions for pausing, allowing for translation. This was during his first public address since the devastating attack on Israel over the weekend. The contrast was stark next to Iraqi Prime Minister Mohammed Shia’a Al-Sudani, who spoke freely, without the aid of notes.

Instead of addressing the nation live while missiles were still threatening lives, the White House chose to “call a lid” early in the evening, opting only to release staged photos of Biden in the Situation Room. It was only after the immediate crisis had eased that Biden communicated with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to express U.S. support, and convened a discussion with G7 leaders—again, following the script too cautiously, reportedly urging Netanyahu to limit Israel’s response, seemingly more worried about political optics than decisive leadership.

In public, Biden stated, “The United States is committed to Israel’s security…We are committed to a cease-fire that will bring the hostages home and prevent the conflict from spreading further.” Yet, these words, read from his script, now ring hollow, reflecting a pattern of relying on scripted safety nets even in supposedly spontaneous discussions.

This tendency to lean heavily on pre-written prompts was noted not only in moments of international crisis but also in less formal settings like private fundraisers, causing discomfort among his own supporters, as per reports from Axios.

As crises unfold, the leader of the free world should be expected to address his nation and the world with conviction and authenticity, not hide behind carefully curated words. The frequent appearance of Biden’s cheat sheets raises concerning questions about his ability to lead through unscripted challenges—where real leadership is tested not by the ability to follow a script, but to speak from the heart and adapt with strength.

Migrant Invaders Brazenly Charge at Swimmers in Speedboat


In a blatant affront to American sovereignty, a dozen illegal immigrants executed a dangerous and illegal invasion of our shores, arriving at a California beach via speedboat with reckless disregard for the safety of Americans enjoying their leisure time. One surfer narrowly escaped harm as the vessel tore through the water at high speeds, a clear symbol of the contempt these lawbreakers hold for our laws and our people.

This latest episode in Carlsbad, a mere 30 miles north of San Diego, is a chilling reminder of the organized lawlessness that is being orchestrated across our borders. Once ashore, these illegal entrants scurried toward luxury vehicles, suggesting a level of premeditation and support that borders on an invasion facilitated by criminal networks.

Compounding the audacity of this episode was the abject failure of local law enforcement to respond, leaving law-abiding citizens to fend for themselves. Such incidents underscore a terrifying erosion of law and order, signaling to criminals everywhere that our borders are open for exploitation.

This incident is not an anomaly but a stark representation of a broader crisis fueled by a border policy that might as well hang a welcome sign for criminals and opportunists. The alarming influx of illegal crossings, particularly in the San Diego sector—where nearly 7,000 breaches were reported last week alone—is a direct result of deliberate inaction and misguided policies that invite chaos and endanger American lives.

The economic and social strain this unchecked immigration inflicts on our communities is unsustainable. The closure of local migrant shelters, once hemorrhaging millions of taxpayer dollars monthly, is a testament to the fiscal burden imposed by these continuous waves of illegal entrants. This burden has now shifted to our airports and bus stations, turning them into makeshift shelters and degrading the quality of life for residents and tourists alike.

It is evident that our current administration lacks the will to address this crisis effectively. The projected figures are a dire warning: with over 8 million people potentially on our streets, including two million with criminal intentions, the situation is nothing short of a national emergency.

Congress must act with urgency to secure our borders and overhaul an immigration system that has been exploited far too long. We need robust enforcement of our immigration laws, substantial penalties for those who violate them, and an end to policies that encourage illegal entry into our country. The time for tolerance of this disorder is over. The safety, security, and sovereignty of the United States must be enforced rigorously and without apology. We must protect American citizens and the integrity of our nation.
