Month Five

mapThis month’s purchases:

  • 1 small bottle betadine $5 ebay-medicalproductsdepot
  • 1 “neck safe” $4 ebay-Gator Outfitters
  • 1 roadmap of your area (print up from online)
  • 1 copy each car key and house key  $2 (walmart)
  • 1 small paperback book

Read about the use of betadine as a water disinfectant here.

In these kits we use betadine as a pre-treatment (3 drops per 20 oz. bottle) for the Berkey Sport bottles.  The betadine kills bacteria (making it a good first aid item as well) and keeps your bottle cleaner and the filter removes the iodine taste.

Also, see this month’s article on Emergency and Disaster Response to learn how to assemble your “neck safe”!
