  2. A very tooshie situation. sorry. just wondering what can be used if you
    run out of bleach. Maybe a strong cleansing herb?
    All the best

    1. I have bought from Walmart, the Evolve bleach tablets, you get 32 per bottle for around my area $2..00 give or take a few cents and I don’t use them a whole lot and I like it because I don’t have a gallon size jug sitting around those would be good to stock up on.

  3. Like MD said… TP is going to be a great barter item. Think of what you can get for one roll.

    Often overlooked item …. however one I did not miss. My employer had changed tissue systems and disposed of those oversize rolls, about the size of a record album. I managed to snag 5/2000 foot rolls and sealed them away in airtight buckets to avoid rot.
    I’ve also made purchases from Sam’s club. $20 a bundle delivered…can’t be that, it’s a 60 mile round trip if I went to the store. Presently 6/45 roll bundles. At 1.3 rolls per week that’s 208 weeks (4 years).
    Is that a new meaning to CYA? Add the 5 rolls and that’s two years more.
    One of the comforts I really don’t want to be without. Living alone I’m pretty well set on this one.
    I figure the washcloth will work for #1 and the TP for #2
    In regards to bleach, there’s 12 gallons on the shelves. At Goodwill I bought 4 bags, $3 each of what they called “pet towels”. They were in pretty good shape. I kept the larger ones for bathing and lesser ones became wash cloths, cut squares, then sew the edges to keep from unraveling.
    I have stored up several bundles of newspaper just in case. Better safe than sorry.
    And not a waste of space… newspaper rolled tight enough can be logs for a fire. Use to roll them when I had a woodstove.
    MD… Your loyals have followed and listened. You’ve got us thinking like you… Imagine the commune we could make. LOL
    Thanks for all the awareness you put forward for us.

  4. We had gone to a Daiso, dollar tree type store they get all their items from Japan, my daughter wanted to check it out and I found compressed towels, 20 in a small package, for $1.50 . I tried them out they were stronger than a baby wipe, about the same size and you can rinse them out and reuse I would say 3 time’s, depending on what your washing I did my face with it so I will grab a few more next time we go to the Big City. Dollar tree , has compressed wash clothes, too which I’ve gotten too so other choices for personal use.
