Survive Using the Shirt Off Your Back

Survive Using the Shirt Off Your Back

( – Imagine getting stranded with nothing more than the clothes you’re wearing. What can you do? What should you do? Thankfully, sometimes all you need is the shirt off your back, some creativity, and a little bit of know-how.

It goes without saying that clothing protects against the elements. But, there are other ways you can use your shirt to survive as well.

As the included video discussed, you can easily make a torch using a shirt. You can also use a shirt to collect water. All you have to do is to hang one outside during a rainstorm. Then, wring it out into a container or directly into your mouth. Similarly, you can rub your shirt across wet grass to collect morning dew.

You can also use a shirt to catch fish. Wrap one around a fish trap frame made from sticks, and you’ll have dinner in no time. You can use a shirt to carry items such as berries, sticks, eggs, or vegetables. Brightly colored shirts can also be used to signal for help and get the attention of rescuers.

And speaking of alternative uses for ordinary items, check out this article about using plastic bottles for survival purposes.
