(TacticalNews.com) – For some people, alcohol is a way to relax and have fun. Others, however, abuse the substance and form dangerous addictions that ruin their lives. While having an occasional drink isn’t likely to cause someone to develop an addiction, there are other reasons why some may steer clear of alcohol such as religious beliefs.
Even for those who are opposed to the consumption of alcohol, there are some good reasons why it might be a good idea to keep a hidden stash of spirits in the house. Here are a few to consider:
Vodka can do a lot more than clean and sanitize your skin. If you dab a cotton swab in this alcohol and apply it to a bug bite, it can help stop the itching or numb the skin. When warmed and mixed with honey and lemon, vodka can make a great cough syrup.
High-proof vodka, which has a higher alcohol content by volume, is perfect for sterilizing utensils and medical tools. In addition, if the alcohol content is high enough, you can soak corks in the vodka to make homemade fire starters. These vodkas also work well for replacing lamp oil.
Of course, simply because you don’t drink doesn’t mean others wouldn’t pay ridiculous prices to get their hands on some of your alcohol stockpiles following a disaster. After SHTF, vodka and other spirits are great bartering pieces. Be sure to check out how you can barter in a collapsed world.
