  • DIY Survival Projects Part 7: Survival Usage Of Drinking Straws

    Don't throw away those used fast food straws, they make handy containers that can be used to hold and protect any number of useful items.




    Use a drinking straw to store matches away from moisture.
    Cut straw to length.


    Seal one end of the straw using a pair of pliers and a lighter.


    Insert matches with the heads toward the already sealed end, then seal open end.
    Glue a striker to the straw and it's ready to go into a survival kit.




    Use a straw to store fire tinder.

    You'll need a piece of straw, petroleum jelly, and cotton.


    Once again, start by sealing one end of the straw.
    Saturate cotton with petroleum jelly, then roll and twist it into the straw.
    Use something to pack it down to make room to seal the other end.
    Seal open end.
    To use, simply cut the end off, pull a bit of cotton out and light.




    Use a straw to store 22 ammo.

    The size of most fast food straws are a perfect fit for 22lr and 22wmr ammo.
    Simply use the technique from the previous examples to seal your ammo and keep it away from moisture.




    Other ideas for drinking straws.

    Store medication.


    First aid ointments.


    Salt, pepper, or spices.




    I'm sure you'll find many more uses for straws.
    I'd like to hear your ideas in the comments.

    Stay tuned, I have a big do it yourself project coming real soon.
