There are certain things that you should always have in stock at home. You know, staples that are constantly used and frequently replaced. There are five items however that should never run out of as they are not only helpful around your home but during an emergency as well.
First up, vinegar. You can use vinegar to clean your microwave; remove grease; clean carpeting; as a furniture polish; and to disinfect food by diluting it in water and soaking your food briefly before consuming.
Second, rubber gloves! They can come in handy daily for dishes, but also in emergencies can protect your hands from rough edges or glass or hazardous materials.
Third, water! Always best to keep a stash of bottled water somewhere in the house. You can also use the water from your water heater tank in case of serious emergency.
Fourth in line, salt. Salt can be used to season food but also diluted in water for dental rinse, wound cleaning, and hydration.
Last, aluminum foil. Aluminum foil isn’t just to keep your food warm and covered. Its also used to clean dishes by turning it into a ball and if needed it can be folded into a sharp tool.
We hope this list inspired you to remember these items on your next trip to the store.
