Alternative Uses For Hard Liquor Alcohol

Howdy Ya'll,
All preppers know the value of having liquor in your preparedness storage caches for the purpose of barter and or personal consumptive use in some cases. A couple of recent internet newsletters had articles on many uses of liquor. Some of the uses are dis-proven like for tooth ache, etc., and some are humor, so don't take it all as gospel. In general, it is good to know prep info. Feel free to reply with more uses.
Happy Preparedness Trails,
jpf

By Suzanne Wiley published on July 17, 2013 in Camping & Survival
I have read that ethanol alcohol—the kind of alcohol that makes us drunk—was the first synthesized product that humans made. Originally made from honey, fruits, berries, grains, and other plants left in the sun to ferment, alcohol and its first use documented as far back as 10,000 B.C.
Historically, fermented beverages:

Acted as a substitution for water
Fixed nutritional deficiencies
Served medicinal purposes

Alcohol also had its place in religious ceremonies and even used as currency. Supposedly, vodka was an ingredient in early European gunpowder. And of course, people drank alcohol in order to become intoxicated.
When shopping for liquor, you will find two different numbers on the bottle. One is the percentage and one is the proof. The percentage is the amount of true ethanol alcohol content, while proof is the official government designation of how much alcohol content is in the beverage. Divide the proof in half to get the actual percentage of alcohol.
Picture shows a molotov cocktail made with a liquor bottle.
Image
Use number six: Molotov cocktail for zombie and other hostile elimination.
The term proof comes from 18th century distillers. To prove the correct alcohol content in their distilled beverages, they added gunpowder. If it did not ignite, there was not enough alcohol. If it burned blue, they declared the alcohol 100 percent proof, or 50 percent ethanol alcohol.
Liquor has its place in a post-apocalyptic world even if you are a teetotaler. Stock up on cheap, high-alcohol content liquors and add it to your long-term food and gear storage. The best liquor for its many different purposes is Everclear. Everclear, made by Luxco, is pure grain alcohol. You can purchase Everclear in 95 percent alcohol content or 75.5 percent. The higher alcohol content is more popular and more effective for survival use. Everclear is illegal in Florida, Hawaii, Iowa, Maine, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Nevada, North Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia, and banned in Chicago (of course.) If you live in a state that restricts the sale of Everclear, you may substitute high-proof vodka. Of course, after SHTF and no laws exist you can start moonshining.
If you choose an alcohol other than vodka or Everclear, such as whiskey or gin, purchase at least 70 proof or higher. This ensures the alcohol will burn.
To store alcohol—Everclear, vodka, whiskey, brandy, gin, or rum—purchase glass bottles. These liquors will store indefinitely in the right conditions. Keep your alcohol in a cool, dark place away from direct sunlight. Keep the bottles upright and do not open them. Once opened, the liquid will evaporate and lose its flavor after six to eight months.
Here are my 45 suggestions for survival uses of alcohol:

Fire starter
Barter and trade
Alleviate boredom
Calm anxiety
Sleep aide
Molotov cocktail
Antiseptic for wounds
Sterilize needles, tweezers and other instruments
Disinfect questionable water
Relieve poison ivy
Kill odors
Refresh clothing
Bug repellent and killer
Surface cleanser
Anesthetic for tooth pain
Lamp fuel
Make herbal tinctures and elixirs
Facial astringent and toner
Topical treatment
Clean skin before an injection
Fuel for vehicles
Stove fuel
Gun cleaner
Solvent
Mouthwash
Rust prevention
Clean optic glass
Clear congestion and sinuses
Stop the itch of bug bites
Fire accelerant
Numbing agent
Starter fluid for IC engines
Hygienic soak for razor blades and brushes
Weed killer
Chemically cook food
Deodorant
Make perfume
Clean electronics
Kill mold
Remove stains
Dry wet clothing
Break the bottle and use the glass shards as a weapons and cutting tool
Cough suppressant (warmed whiskey mixed with honey and lemon works best)
Help repopulate
Muscle relaxer

I love my job most every day, but I especially love it today…because I get to talk about survival uses for hard liquor.
Now before you get all excited, this is NOT a list of 23 ways you can get drunk to forget about the crises occurring outside your door.
…I may have lost a few people there, but I figure it’s best to disappoint early.
Turns out this blog is actually quite a bit more useful than just knowing how to drink too much – there’s tons of cool tricks I can teach you that’ll make you want to throw a bottle in your bug out bag.
Listen and be amazed as you read these…
23 Survival Uses For Hard Liquor
1 – Deodorant Replacement
Let’s just be honest – nobody smells like roses when SHTF. Never fear – your good ol’ buddy alcohol is here! Simply dab some hard liquor under your armpits and the alcohol will prevent bacteria growth (and therefore stop you from smelling bad).
Or, if you just want to use the real thing, we’ve got real deodorant in these compact male and female hygiene kits.

2 – Morale Booster
Morale can get low quickly in a crisis, especially in big groups. In order to help prevent fights breaking out amongst your peers, try a little gift of hard liquor. They’ll (hopefully) settle down and be in a better mood in no time.
Note: If you want a different kind of morale boost, you could always go for our awesome solar air lantern with FREE survival tip playing cards combo! Compact, fun and informative! Check it out here.

3 – Get Over A Cold
With bourbon, a little honey, and lemon, you can make a hot toddy. Not only will this beverage soothe your sore throat, but smelling the steam from the drink can also help loosen mucus in your nose and throat.
4 – Use As Fuel
If you’ve got a camp stove, you can use a highly flammable liquor, such as everclear, to replace your fuel.
Or, if you’d rather have a compact (yet powerful) stove that already comes with fuel and that’ll fit in your pocket, you could try ours instead! See it here.

5 – Remove Splotches
You can remove the stains from your clothes by spraying them with clear alcohol and then scrubbing. Works like a charm!
6 – Take Out Mold
Alcohol helps to remove water. Since mold needs moisture to survive, you can dry up that moisture using alcohol. No more mold!
7 – Sterilize Medical Equipment
You can remove the germs from medical equipment (like thermometers) by soaking them in alcohol.
Ne8ed more medical equipment? We’ve got plenty! Take a look:

8 – Get The Glue Off
If you’ve got glue on your hands that regular soap just won’t remove, you can apply alcohol to the area to help it lift off easily.
9 – Defrost Your Windows
If your car windows are having trouble defrosting, you can wipe alcohol on them to get rid of it.
10 – Trading And Selling
Hard alcohol is going to be a prize item in a SHTF situation. You can stock up on it now so you’ll have extra to trade for other goods you need, or to sell it to make some money.
In fact, much of your survival gear, food and weapons will be excellent bartering tools when SHTF. In order to be sittin’ pretty with all the resources, it’s best to stock up on all the supplies you can right now.
We can help you do this the hassle-free way with our exclusive VIP Buyer’s Club Membership. We’ll help you save money on all your favorite survival gear (15% discount and FREE shipping), all while we treat you like a celebrity (priority handling, VIP concierge support, exclusive offers and discounts).

11 – Clean Precious Metals
When cash is useless, precious metals are a great thing to have to keep the upper hand in emergencies. You can keep them clean by rubbing them with a towel and some rubbing alcohol.
12 – Shoo The Bugs Away
Rub some hard alcohol and olive oil on your skin – the bugs and mosquitos won’t want to touch you after that.
13 – Remove Infection
Use a grain alcohol to serve as a natural disinfectant if you’re in a bind.
Note: This can kill other healthy cell tissue in the area, so use it sparingly.
14 – Take Out The Stink
If you can’t wash your clothes, the next best thing might just be vodka. Spray it on your clothes to get rid of bad odors. You can also spray this in various rooms of your house to help take out the stink.
15 – Eggs In A Pinch
Pour some hard alcohol into a cup, and then break an egg into it. After an hour or so, the egg should be cooked. Sounds gross, but it’ll get you full in a bind.
If you’re like me and aren’t exactly keen on cooking raw eggs in vodka, you could always just eat these delicious, healthy and filling Mountain House scrambled eggs instead. Get them here.

16 – Instant Mouth Relief
If you’ve got a toothache or sore gums, you an swish vodka in your mouth to make it temporarily disappear.
Note: It may be more than just a toothache…and if that’s the case, you’re going to have a hard time getting very far without a dentist around.

21 – Take Care Of Poison Ivy

22 – Treat Bug Bites
Dab hard alcohol onto bug bites to quickly soothe the pain and itching.
23 – Take Away The Fungus
Make a solution of hard alcohol and water to remove fungus from the toes, feet and ears.
Well, that was 23…but I found a great video that’ll give you way more. It’s also got tips on which alcohols to buy, how to store them and which price range to go for.
Now as you saw, many of the above survival uses are for medical purposes, like disinfecting wounds and sterilizing equipment. However, you’ll be much better off with an actual 320-piece Medical Kit than you would be with a bottle of Jack.
This is the perfect emergency kit for the prepper on the move – it fits snugly around your waist so that you can work on the task at hand, without using up valuable space in your bug out bag.
It’s fully equipped, too, with each of its 320 pieces examined and validated by firemen, nurses and EMTs alike. Plus, its contents will take way longer to run out than that bottle of vodka you’ve got.
With great equipment like pain relievers, alcohol antiseptic wipes, and antibiotic ointment (and that’s just getting started), you can heal yourself quickly and save that whiskey and tequila for more important matters…like bartering.
Grab your 320-piece Medical Kit today and stay prepared for what’s up ahead.
