Five gallon buckets are not only great for long term food storage, they are also great for other emergency items such as personal care, and health supplies. We posted a non-threatening way to get them to prep and clever reader Ginger came up with her gift idea to give her family this year: the portable potty bucket.
- toilet paper
- Supersorb – absorbent granules that absorbs liquid for quick cleanup. Antimicrobial and odor eliminating, Ginger got hers from a janitorial supply store, you can also find them on Amazon.
- Hi-Genic – thick, non-acid cleaner disinfects and deodorizes, controls mildew and kills HIV-1 (AIDS virus). Also found at janitorial supplies or Amazon.
- rubber gloves
- personal hygiene wipes
- potty seat
- enzymes to break down waste
- plastic bags
- kitty litter
- hand sanitizer
- air freshener
- festive solar light (she included these to light the emergency toilet area)
Her gifts were a big hit and were received.
Our thanks to Ginger for sharing her idea and photos with us. Readers, feel free to share your prepping ideas, please email me at apartmentprepper(at)yahoo.com.
