Survival Uses For Rice

survival uses for rice

Did you know there are lots of survival uses for rice…and none of them including eating? Keep reading to learn more!

 

If you’re like most preppers, you likely have dry rice in your food storage. And this can be a great thing, since rice is possibly one of the best survival foods you can ever have. Not only is it crazy cheap, but you can also buy it in bulk, and it stores for long periods of time with no issues (especially when kept in an air-tight container).

Not to mention, rice also has a ton to offer nutritionally. It’s chock-full of healthy carbs, and also contains fiber and minerals. Plus, it goes great with dang near everything, so it makes an excellent side dish or main course.

Whether it’s white or brown, stocking up on rice just makes sense. However, what you may not know is there’s a whole lot more you can do with rice than just eat it.

As it turns out, there are a ton of essential…

Survival Uses For Rice

Stick Stuff Together

Did you know you can use rice to make your own glue? This substance can come in handy in a number of ways during a survival situation. Not to mention, it’s dirt cheap and super simple to make!

Watch this video to learn more about making glue from rice:

Improve Your Skin & Symptoms

Many people don’t realize that making rice water can have a host of benefits for both the skin and the body!

For years, people all over the world have been using rice water to help treat acne, purify the skin, soothe sunburns, and heal eczema. It also contains the right pH for your skin, and so can help prevent aging spots and can improve your overall complexion. In this way, rice water allows you to “turn back the clock” on aging.

That’s not all – you can also use rice water as a detergent, a hair rinse, an effective cure for diarrhea, and an electrolyte replacement (making a great substitution for Gatorade).

To make rice water, all you’ll need is one cup of rice (you can use any type except for wild rice) and four cups of purified water. Boil the rice in water and stir until the water turns cloudy.

Then strain out the rice, being sure to keep the water. Store the rice water in a mason jar, and use it as necessary. It’ll last for about four days in the fridge.

When using, it’s often best to serve it hot for illness, and cold for any other purpose.

Save Your Electronics

If your favorite electronic device has gone for an unintentional dip in the water, you can still save it with the help of rice.

Fill a large bowl or bag with rice (this should be dry rice, so make sure not to cook it first). Take out the battery from the device, and bury it and the phone separately under the rice. Let it sit overnight.

The rice will slowly begin to absorb the water from your electronic device, making it good as new. Make sure to do this as soon as possible once your device hits the water – if you wait too long, you’ll risk permanent water damage.

Clean The Coffee Grinder

All you need is rice to clean out that dirty coffee grinder. And the beauty of this technique is it sharpens the blades while absorbing the leftover oils and smells of the coffee beans you’ve been grinding!

Empty the grinder of any leftover beans or grounds, and then pour 1/2 cup of dry rice into it. Grind until the rice is completely crushed. Repeat this process every 3-5 days, and you’ll notice a difference in both your grinder and the taste of your coffee!

Keep Your Salt Clump-Free

Ever have it where you go to pour salt out of the shaker, only to find you can’t get much out because it’s clumping together? This is a very common scenario in high-moisture areas. And, although this may not seem like a big deal on a day-to-day basis, it’s especially frustrating in a survival situation when you have very little resources to spare.

To avoid this, simply pour fresh salt into the shaker and add a few grains of dry rice. Shake it up so the rice is blending with the salt (and not resting on top). The rice will absorb any moisture that gets into the shaker, allowing you to use every last grain of salt.

Ease Aching Muscles

Using rice and a clean sock, you can make your own heating pad or ice pack to soothe aching muscles.

Fill the sock about halfway with dry rice (and make sure there are no holes in it first). Then tie off the top of the sock so that no grains escape.

For an ice pack, place the sock into the freezer for at least half an hour. Then take out the sock and place it on any muscles that are hurting for some cooling relief.

For a heating pad, put the sock in the microwave on HIGH for two minutes. Let it sit for 60 seconds before taking it out. Then place it onto the body to help relieve tension and soreness.

Keep Your Tools Rust-Free

Rust can render even the sharpest tools useless. That’s why it’s imperative to prevent rust from occurring before it starts.

One of the best ways to do this is to immerse your tools in rice. This can be done in a toolbox, or other container. Much like with electrical devices (see #3), the dry rice will soak in the moisture, water, and oil from your tools, making sure they remain rust-free.

SICK: Migrant Invader Filmed His Rape of 13-Year-Old Girl

juarez-mexico-11152022-venezuelan-migrants-cross

The appalling case of Christian Inga, a 25-year-old migrant from Ecuador accused of raping a 13-year-old girl at knifepoint in broad daylight in Queens, New York, lays bare the catastrophic consequences of President Joe Biden’s lax immigration policies. Prosecutors allege that Inga even filmed the attack, adding an unimaginable level of horror to this already heinous crime.

Inga, who has been arrested and charged by the NYPD with numerous offenses including rape, sexual abuse, robbery, kidnapping, criminal possession of a weapon, menacing, and unlawful imprisonment, approached two 13-year-olds near Kissena Park in East Flushing, Queens. When the children initially refused his demand to follow him into a wooded area, he brandished a machete, forcing them into compliance.

Once in the woods, Inga allegedly tied up the children and proceeded to rape the 13-year-old girl, admitting to filming the brutal attack. The New York Post reports:

“The Ecuadorian migrant charged with raping a 13-year-old girl he bound and gagged in a Queens park told cops he recorded the attack during a sickening taped confession, prosecutors alleged Wednesday.”

This chilling admission during a hushed court hearing has sent shockwaves through the community. Inga first crossed the United States-Mexico border with his three-year-old son in June 2021 near Eagle Pass, Texas. Despite being ordered deported by a federal immigration judge in February 2022, he was released into the U.S. interior with a Notice to Appear (NTA), showcasing the glaring failures of the Biden administration’s immigration enforcement.

Inga’s criminal record extends beyond this appalling incident. He has had three summonses in the past — for having an open container in December 2022, jumping a subway turnstile in March 2023, and trespassing in May 2023. Additionally, NYPD officers were called to break up a fight at a residence in Queens in January, resulting in a domestic violence report, although he was not arrested.

This is just the latest incident of horrific, sickening crime committed by one of Biden’s illegal migrant invaders. The blame for this crime can be laid squarely at the feet of the Biden Administration and their lax policies at our Southern border, where known violent criminals arrive by the thousands every day.

California Senate Allows Schools to Trans Kids Without Informing Parents

sacramento-caus-june-10-2018-unidentified

The California Senate’s recent approval of a bill that would bar school districts from informing parents if their child decides to go by a new pronoun at school is a brazen and outrageous assault on parental rights and family integrity. This shocking legislation strips parents of their fundamental right to be involved in their children’s lives, placing the state in a position of unwarranted authority over deeply personal family matters.

This bill is a blatant and egregious attempt to undermine parental authority. It forbids school districts from enforcing policies that require teachers to disclose a student’s gender identity or sexual orientation to their parents without the child’s consent. Proponents of this bill claim it is necessary to protect students who might face hostility at home. However, this sweeping, one-size-fits-all policy fails to recognize the critical role that parents play in guiding, nurturing, and supporting their children through complex and challenging issues.

More disturbingly, this bill opens the door for schools to covertly influence or even convert children’s gender identities under the radar and without parental knowledge. It grants schools unchecked power to make life-altering decisions about children’s gender identities, effectively sidelining parents and keeping them in the dark about significant changes in their child’s life.

Greg Burt, vice president of the California Family Council, forcefully criticized the bill’s flawed assumption that parents are inherently unsafe. “You don’t assume that all parents are unsafe,” Burt declared. “That shouldn’t be the assumption.” His stance resonates with countless parents who believe they have an inherent right and responsibility to know what is happening in their children’s lives, particularly if their children begin identifying as “trans” or experiencing gender dysphoria.

This bill, now advancing to the state Assembly, represents a profound overreach by the state into family matters. Attorney General Rob Bonta’s lawsuit against the Chino Valley Unified School District for its parental notification policy further illustrates the radical lengths to which state officials will go to keep parents in the dark. This aggressive legal stance is an affront to every parent who values transparency and their critical role in their child’s upbringing.

The potential passage of this bill would be a disaster for parental rights and family cohesion. It sets a dangerous precedent, effectively telling parents they cannot be trusted with information about their own children. This is a gross overstep by the government and a betrayal of the trust and authority parents rightfully hold.

The fight to uphold parental rights is far from over. Advocates for transparency and parental involvement must continue to push back against this overreaching legislation. Parents deserve to be informed and involved in all aspects of their children’s lives. Anything less is an unacceptable infringement on their rights and a disservice to the children who depend on them. This bill must be stopped to protect the sanctity of the family and ensure that parents retain their rightful place in their children’s lives. Schools should not be allowed to covertly influence or change children’s gender identities without the knowledge and involvement of their parents. This covert manipulation is an affront to family values and the sacred bond between parent and child.

Illegals, Non-Citizens Voting in American Elections

female-voter-bulletin-hands-comes-voting

Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) is sounding the alarm on the scandalous reality of non-citizens voting in American elections. Appearing on Breitbart News Daily, he tore into the deeply troubling issue, calling for urgent action through the Safeguard American Voter Eligibility (SAVE) Act to restore the integrity of the U.S. electoral system.

Roy didn’t mince words. He exposed the shocking evidence of non-citizens voting, whether they are here legally or illegally. Studies have shown that such illegal voting has potentially swayed elections, like the highly controversial election of Al Franken in Minnesota. Just last year, Virginia had to purge 1,500 registered voters who had no right to vote. This isn’t an isolated problem; it’s a widespread epidemic infecting cities like Oakland, San Francisco, Washington, DC, and New York City. These jurisdictions are recklessly registering non-citizens for local and state elections, creating a dangerous loophole that could easily allow them to vote in federal elections.

Roy lambasted the federal laws that cripple states’ abilities to verify citizenship, forcing states like Arizona to juggle two separate election systems. This bureaucratic nightmare is an affront to every American voter who expects and deserves a fair and legal election process.

The Motor Voter Act of the 1990s, Roy argued, has only worsened the situation by making it nearly impossible for states to ensure that only citizens are voting. The federal forms may ask individuals to declare their citizenship, but there is no real enforcement or verification, leaving the door wide open for fraud and abuse.

The SAVE Act is Roy’s proposed solution, demanding proof of citizenship for anyone registering to vote. He acknowledged the unique challenges of states like North Dakota, which do not have voter registration, but insisted that the bill is adaptable to different state needs while maintaining its core mission: protecting the vote of American citizens.

Roy made it clear that this is not a partisan issue; it’s a matter of national security and democratic integrity. He cited a recent vote in Washington, DC, where 52 Democrats supported ending the registration of non-citizens for elections, showcasing the broad support for this critical issue. However, he also highlighted the fierce opposition from many Democrats who refuse to ensure that congressional seats and allocations are based on citizenship.

In a powerful conclusion, Roy condemned the Biden administration for flooding the country with millions of non-citizens, exacerbating the crisis. He called for immediate action to stop the outrageous betrayal of American voters and protect the democratic process from being hijacked by those who have no right to participate in it.

This is not just a policy debate; it’s a battle for the very soul of American democracy. The time to act is now, before the right to vote is further eroded by the influx of non-citizens and the reckless policies enabling them.
