We had a nice laugh in December when my mom gave my dad a “Super-soaker” for Christmas. Turns out, they’d recently had a conversation about what they would do if they ran out of toilet paper during an emergency, or a time when they couldn’t obtain supplies. My mom joked that he could just hang his heinie (according to Merriam-Webster this is a real word) out the window and she’d spray him off with a hose.
And yeah, it could work, but really…there are very few people I can imagine who would prefer this method over good old fashioned toilet paper.
Taking an inventory of all products that you and your family use on a regular basis is a good idea so you know what you’d need/want/really, really miss in the event that you weren’t able to visit the store.
Here are a few that I have currently in my storage:
SANITARY SUPPLIES! Oh my goodness…I would not like to have to be like my pioneer grandmothers on this one….
You can also store ingredients to make your own hygiene items like:
Arrowroot Powder or Cornstarch
Sweet Almond Oil
just to name a few…..
Let me know what hygiene items you are storing, or if there are any you’ve forgotten! I’d love to hear from you so please leave a comment!
