23 Crazy Ways To Use Alcohol

I bet you’ve never heard of these insanely beneficial ways to use alcohol…

Let’s be honest – there are few of us who don’t enjoy a stiff drink every now and again. And, now that the holidays are here, it seems that this liquid elixir is everywhere we look.

However, despite its popularity in normal life, many preppers don’t believe they can actually use hard alcohol in a survival situation. And this is a real shame, because they’re sacrificing tons of life-saving benefits that can really help them stay alive.

And believe me, alcohol can do a lot more than just get you drunk so you forget the SHTF scenario that’s happening outside your front door.

As it turns out, alcohol – especially hard alcohol – can provide you numerous benefits when SHTF.

Luckily, you can be smarter than those preppers who didn’t believe booze was actually useful. All you have to do is take advantage of these…

23 Crazy Ways To Use Alcohol

Now before we get into all the survival uses for alcohol, there’s a few things you need to consider:

Purchasing & Storing Alcohol

When purchasing alcohol, it’s best to figure out what your purposes are. For instance, if you’re bugging out, plastic bottles are your friend. These are lighter in weight, won’t break as easily, and are far easier to transport.

In contrast, if you’re going for a long-term storage solution (such as bugging in), glass is often the best choice. Glass bottles last longer, and are harder for rodents and other critters to get into.

Regardless of your situation, if you’re planning on bartering you need to invest in at least a few small bottles (like shooters, for instance). These are far easier to trade than large bottles are, and they allow you to stockpile much more efficiently.

What To Avoid – Container and Color

Everyone has an alcohol preference, and so it’s important to appeal to a wide variety of tastes if you plan on bartering. That’s why it’s often best to have a mixture of light and dark alcohols on-hand, as well as those of different brands.

Keep in mind that when SHTF it’s unlikely people will be extremely finicky about their alcohol preferences, so be sure to stockpile more of the cheap options (along with a couple premium brands just in case).

Here’s a cool hack to save you money: you can run cheap vodka through a water filter to make it taste better. This is an easy way to trick people into drinking cheap vodka – and make them actually enjoy it!

Another reason to stockpile different types of alcohol is that they’re good for different uses. For instance, vodka is one of the best for getting rid of bacteria. Grain alcohols like everclear, on the other hand, are far more flammable.

Whichever alcohols you choose, be sure to fit them with their purposes in mind to ensure you’re stocking up on the right ones for your specific situation.

Speaking of purposes, here are the…

23 Survival Uses For Alcohol

1 – Recover From Sickness

All you need is some bourbon, a little lemon, and honey and you’ve got yourself a “get-better” drink that can soothe a sore throat and help you fight off a cold.

2 – Get Ice Off Windows Quickly

If you need to jet and you’re having trouble defrosting your windows, simply lather some alcohol on your windows and you’ll be on your way in no time.

3 – Bartering

Hard alcohol will be in high-demand once SHTF. Not only is it insanely useful (as you’re coming to realize through this article), but it’s also an addictive stimulant that all the drunks will be scrambling to get their hands on.

Stock up on plenty of alcohol now so you can save some for yourself and trade the rest for supplies you desperately need. And, if you’ve got enough extra storage, you can even sell your booze for cash and become the richest prepper out there (that is, if cash is still valuable).

4 – Relieve A Sore Mouth

Toothaches and sore gums can be a real pain – especially in a crisis when there’s no doctor around. For some much-needed temporary relief, swish some vodka around in your mouth for a minute (and swallow if desired).

5 – Ease The Rash

If you had the misfortune of stepping into poison ivy, you can help stop the itch (and the pain) by dabbing hard alcohol onto the rash.

6 – Remove Fungus

All kinds of bacteria will surround you in a crisis – and it’ll be difficult to find a doctor that’s available to help you. Luckily, you’ve got hard alcohol by your side. Simply combine it with some water and dab the solution onto your ears, feet, and ears to kill the fungus.

Keep in mind it’s important to dilute the alcohol so it doesn’t kill off healthy skin cells.

7 – Ease Bug Bites

Bug bites are some of the most annoying things around. Ease the pain and itching by dabbing hard alcohol on the affected areas.

8 – Clean Your Gun

Run out of gun cleaner? Don’t worry – you can use hard alcohol to wipe it clean and disinfect it at the same time.

9 – Cook Some Eggs

This is one of the weirdest survival uses ever, but it’ll get you by in a bind. If you need protein and can’t build a fire, you can cook eggs in pure vodka.

Simply pour straight vodka into a container, crack an egg, and put the egg into the alcohol. Then let it sit, and occasionally pour a little of the booze on top of the egg to help it cook.

In a couple hours, you’ll have fully cooked eggs, ready to eat. Take a look at the video for a cool visual of this process:

10 – Disinfect Hard Surfaces

Bacteria runs rampant in emergency situations, and you don’t always have cleaning supplies to take care of it. Instead, you can rub hard alcohol over surfaces to disinfect them. Just let them to air-dry before covering them or setting anything on top of them.

11 – Keep The Fire Going

Not sure how long your fire will last? Simply pour a bit of grain alcohol on the flames every so often to keep your fire burning hot all night long.

12 – Take Away The Stench

Nobody smells squeaky clean when SHTF, but bad B.O. will bring down the morale of even the toughest bug out group. Remove the stench by dabbing hard alcohol on your armpits. This will kill the bacteria residing on your skin, and should take away the smell.

13 – Boost Morale

Life is tough in survival situations – there’s just no way to get around that. And even the most disciplined people can let the despair get them down every once in a while.

To remedy this, break out a card game and pour everyone a round to help boost the group’s spirits. As long as nobody in the group is an angry drunk, you’re likely to have a good time.

14 – Replace The Fuel

Got a camp stove? Simply replace your normal fuel with alcohol (particularly grain alcohols like everclear), and you’ll be ready to cook breakfast, lunch and dinner in no time.

15 – Sterilize First-Aid Supplies

Infection and bacteria run rampant in a crisis – and they should NOT be doing so on your precious first-aid supplies.

To help keep your metal and stainless steel tools (like thermometers) bacteria-free, you can soak them in hard alcohol. This will sterilize them and keep them ready when you need them most.

16 – Get The Glue Off

Glue can be quite handy in a survival situation. The downside, though, is that it sticks to your hands and can be extremely hard to remove (especially if you’re using super glue).

Rather than fight with it, simply dab some hard alcohol onto your hands. This will lift the glue off and get you back to your normal routine.

17 – Prevent Mosquito Bites

In order to keep the mosquitos (and other bugs) off you, rub a combination of olive oil and hard alcohol onto your skin. One whiff and the bugs should leave you alone.

18 – Get a Fire Going

It can be tough to get a fire going when it’s wet and rainy outside. Never fear – simply soak a towel in hard alcohol (particularly grain alcohols like everclear). This will light easily, and get your fire going in seconds.

19 – Remove Odors

Clothing can start to stink after a few days without washing, and your home can start to smell as well. Remove these odors by putting vodka in a spray bottle and spraying down anything with a stench.

20 – Disinfect A Wound

Use grain alcohols to help disinfect a wound in a pinch. It may hurt like hell, but you’ll be better off in the long run.

21 – Clean Precious Metals

These will be absolutely necessary when cash is no longer valuable. Keep these metals clean by rubbing them with hard alcohol and a clean towel.

22 – Stain Remover

Here’s a hack for both SHTF situations and everyday life scenarios: spray hard alcohol onto a stain, and watch it disappear. Presto!

23 – Remove The Mold

Mold breeds and thrives in moist areas. That’s why, to get rid of the mold, you need to get rid of the moisture.

Put hard alcohol (like vodka) into a spray bottle and spray down any moldy places in the home. The alcohol will draw out the moisture and kill off that disgusting mold for good.

 

Alcohol has way more survival uses than just what’s up above. Here’s a few more (and some extra information as well):

Trump Responds to Secret Service Director’s Resignation

Trump Responds to Secret Service Director's Resignation

(ConcernedPatriot.com) – President Donald Trump responded to Kimberly Cheatle’s statement on Tuesday that she was leaving her role as director of the Secret Service due to criticism of the way her organization handled the recent attempt on the previous president’s life.

Trump said, “She never gave me proper protection, so I ended up having to take a bullet for democracy,” in an afternoon interview with Fox News Digital.

He said that his campaign made multiple requests for more protection, which the agency either flatly denied or disregarded.

“Many requests were made by on-site Secret Service for more people, always with a turn down or no response,” Trump told the news outlet. “I have the biggest crowds in history, and they should be treated accordingly.”

He added, “Big improvements have been made over the last week,” Fox News Digital reported.

Cheatle announced her resignation in writing to the Secret Service on Tuesday morning, despite her earlier refusal to do so.

“To the Men and Women of the U.S. Secret Service, The Secret Service’s solemn mission is to protect our nation’s leaders and financial infrastructure,” Cheatle wrote. “On July 13th, we fell short on that mission.”

She was under pressure to step down during Monday’s House Oversight Committee hearing, as she acknowledged that the agency’s reaction to the attempted assassination was a “failure.” This pressure came from all sides of the aisle.

According to a recent press release, United States Representative Nancy Mace (R-S.C.) submitted a motion that evening that would have forced a vote in the House to impeach Cheatle following her initial refusal to step down on Monday.

In response to Mace’s question during the hearing on whether the agency’s response was “a colossal failure,” the director said, “Yes.” Mace attacked the Secret Service for its lack of openness, pointing out that Cheatle’s testimony had to be subpoenaed by legislators.

Before the hearing, she accused the director of leaking her opening statement to several media sites.

When asked how often the agency had turned down the Trump campaign’s demands for more security throughout her testimony, Cheatle remained silent.

During the committee’s opening remarks, she acknowledged that the Secret Service’s reaction to the attempted assassination was “the most significant operational failure of the agency in decades.”

Nevertheless, she insisted that she was “the best person” to run the organization then.

President Joe Biden issued a statement acknowledging Cheatle’s decision and expressing gratitude for her service on Tuesday afternoon, following her resignation in response to the growing calls for her resignation.

“As a leader, it takes honor, courage, and incredible integrity to take full responsibility for an organization tasked with one of the most challenging jobs in public service,” the statement read. “The independent review to get to the bottom of what happened on July 13th continues, and I look forward to assessing its conclusions. We all know what happened that day can never happen again.”

During her hearing before the committee on Monday, Cheatle stated that the agency’s ongoing initial internal assessment would take around sixty days.

Do you believe there should be a criminal investigation into the Secret Service Director’s lack of security for President Trump?

Harris Campaign Begins Vetting Process for Top VP Contenders

Harris Campaign Begins Vetting Process for Top VP Contenders

(ConcernedPatriot.com) – The competition to become Vice President Kamala Harris’s running partner is intensifying. It has been reported that her campaign has sent screening papers to several prominent Democrats.

Senator Mark Kelly (D-AZ) and Governor Josh Shapiro (D-PA), seen as strong candidates from crucial battleground states, are leading the pack.

Harris’s campaign carefully evaluates potential vice presidential candidates as she seeks the Democratic presidential nomination.

Alongside Kelly and Shapiro, governors Roy Cooper (D-NC), Gretchen Whitmer (D-MI), Tim Walz (D-MN), and J.B. Pritzker (D-IL) have also been given vetting paperwork. However, Pritzker has denied receiving such materials.

One notable omission from the list is Governor Andy Beshear (D-KY), who many see as a leading contender.

Beshear stated that despite vigorous campaigning for the position, he had not received any correspondence from the Harris campaign concerning the vice-presidential screening procedure.

The selection process is underway as Harris’s team looks to enhance its ticket with a running mate who will appeal to a wide range of voters and strengthen support in key states.

Kelly and Shapiro are perceived as centrist leaders who, due to their considerable political backgrounds, have the potential to draw in moderate voters.

Kelly, the current senator from Arizona and a former astronaut, has a proven track record in Arizona.

At the same time, Shapiro’s leadership in Pennsylvania is distinguished by his emphasis on progressive ideals and his ability to win elections in a swing state.

The main goal of her campaign plan seems to be selecting a running mate who can enhance Harris’s program and increase the Democratic ticket’s appeal to a wide range of voters in essential areas and demographics.

The fact that there are several governors indicates that candidates with executive expertise and a track record of successful leadership are preferred.

The screening process is anticipated to be rigorous, involving a detailed review of the candidates’ public personas and political positions and significant background investigations.

The campaign’s final choice will probably try to strike a compromise between political tactics and the requirement for a solid and cooperative alliance in the White House.

As the Democratic National Convention draws near, there is growing conjecture and expectation over Harris’s final choice for her ticket partner.

The chosen vice-presidential candidate will be crucial to the party’s unity and mobilization of the electorate before the November election.

Does it matter who Harris selects as her VP as she goes against the Trump/Vance ticket?

Local Police Barred From Investigating Trump Assassination

butler-pennsylvania-usa-on-map

Local Pennsylvania police officers revealed to Congress that they were barred from entering a Secret Service command center at President Trump’s rally in Butler, Pennsylvania, on July 13, according to Republican Tennessee Rep. Mark Green. This revelation has raised serious concerns about the competency of the Secret Service, especially in the wake of a blatant assassination attempt.

Rep. Green, the chairman of the House Committee on Homeland Security, along with other bipartisan committee members, toured the Butler Farm Show grounds where 20-year-old Thomas Crooks attempted to assassinate President Trump. Green expressed frustration and concern, stating, “Normally, according to the local sheriff, they have done these events in the past with the Secret Service and always had one of their people in that Secret Service control room. Apparently, that was not allowed this time for some reason,” after his tour of the crime scene, which has been closed to the public since July 13.

The lack of coordination and communication between local and federal law enforcement is alarming. Green, an Army veteran, highlighted this as a glaring example of the miscommunication that put the President’s life at risk. He mentioned ongoing efforts to get more information about the radios used by law enforcement on the day of the rally.

Paul Mauro, a Fox News legal and criminal analyst, explained that a command center is typically a place for all involved law enforcement agencies to streamline communication. It’s a fundamental security measure that was inexplicably ignored. The Secret Service’s failure to integrate local law enforcement into its command center is not just a misstep but a severe breach of protocol that could have had catastrophic consequences.

The incompetence displayed by the Secret Service during Trump’s rally is unforgivable. Green and other lawmakers are rightfully demanding accountability. The Secret Service Director Kimberly Cheatle’s leadership is under scrutiny. During a media briefing, Green described the situation as an “abysmal failure” and called for Cheatle’s resignation. He cited examples of members of Congress accessing the very roof Crooks used to fire upon the crowd without any security hindrances and noted that law enforcement failed to utilize a nearby water tower for surveillance.

Republican Pennsylvania Rep. Mark Kelly also voiced his outrage, highlighting reports that law enforcement was aware of a suspicious person an hour before Trump took the stage. “If there was an idea that there was somebody here that was suspect, why even allow President Trump to even go up to the podium … and why did we go ahead and continue with the program?” Kelly questioned. The lack of proactive measures to protect the President is beyond comprehension.

The attempt on President Trump’s life resulted in the tragic death of Corey Comperatore, a dedicated husband, father, and former fire chief. Two other individuals, David Dutch and James Copenhaver, were critically wounded. This incident is not just a breach of security but a heartbreaking reminder of the consequences of incompetence.

Secret Service Director Kimberly Cheatle’s evasive response to whether she will fire those responsible is unacceptable. The American people deserve better. The security failures must be addressed, and those responsible should be held accountable. It is clear that significant changes need to be made to restore faith in the Secret Service’s ability to protect our leaders.

In the face of such failures, the call for resignations is not just justified but necessary. The safety of President Trump and all our leaders depends on it. It’s time for the Secret Service to undergo a thorough overhaul, ensuring that such dangerous lapses in security never happen again. The American people demand and deserve accountability and competence from those sworn to protect their leaders.
