How to Make Rice Water

Have you heard that rice water is a good thing to learn to prepare?

How to Make Rice Water

Learning how to make rice water is really easy and you most likely already have all of the ingredients that you need to make it.

Why is rice water useful?

Rice water is useful when someone is having any type of stomach issues like vomiting or diarrhea. It is very calming if you have an upset stomach, insanely bland, starchy and helps with getting some nutrients into you (or whoever isn’t feeling well)

It really is simple to learn how to make rice water.

All you need is

  1. Rice
  2. Water

Those are the two ingredients you need, simple. Right?

Put two tablespoons of rice into a pot with 1 cup of water. Do not add salt. Now, bring the water to a boil and boil until the rice is tender.

Then strain the rice out and the milky liquid that is left over is the rice water you are looking for.

You can then eat the rice, or add it to a recipe or even use it to feed chickens or your pet dogs. Just don’t boil it for too long because then the rice water will be extremely thick.

We find that anywhere from 15-30 minutes is the right amount of time to boil.

If it gets too thick, you can water it down.

Be sure to let the rice water cool before serving the person who isn’t feeling their best. You can drink it warm or cold so keep that in mind.

Biggest Reason to Learn How To Make Rice Water

The primary reason to make rice water is for relief of diarrhea.

Bland and hydrating as a broth, rice water is a bit starchy and  provides soothing relief for stomach upset whether you drink it hot or cold.

This home remedy for diarrhea is effective and also provides a negligible amount of vitamins and minerals, which is beneficial over drinking water alone.

Benefits of Rice Water

Rich in the vitamin B complex, folic acid, iron, potassium, magnesium and zinc, rice water gains its properties during the cooking process of rice. White rice is ideal, since during the cooking process it loses more properties than whole-wheat rice. Among its biggest benefits are:

  • Prevents gastroenteritis.
  • Helps regulate body temperature.

27 Ways To Use Baking Soda When SHTF

baking soda

Baking soda, in all of its wonderful glory, is an absolute “must have” in every SHTF BOB, BOV or bug-out anything. From insect bites to hygienic uses, baking soda is like a cure all for whatever could be ailing you. I have compiled a list of 27 ways that baking soda can be used in a SHTF situation.

1. Insect Bites

baking soda paste

Typical insect bites are not exactly dangerous or life-threatening, but after continuous scratching they can become worrisome and irritating. By applying a simple water and baking soda paste, you will find soothing relief from the itch that mosquitos and other bugs give you.

2. Freshen Mouth

Let’s be honest. Not everyone will remember to pack plenty of toothbrushes and toothpaste, so baking soda is a great alternative. Even using your damp finger to scrub baking soda around your mouth will kill germs and bacteria, and it will help keep your teeth white. This may sound trivial, but suffering from an abscess tooth while fighting off a herd of zombies does not sound like a good idea to me!

3. Soothes Feet


You will be on your feet more than you are used to. Whether you are walking, running, hunting or scouting, you will likely have some very sore feet. Soaking your feet in warm water with about ¼ cup of baking soda will actually soothe your feet and help heal those blisters that have started forming.

4. Clean Batteries

Okay, this one is common sense, but it still needs to be included. A baking soda scrub will neutralize the battery acid corrosion. The important thing to remember is to disconnect the battery from all terminals before applying the paste, and always use a cloth (or like item) to scrub the acid away.

5. Extinguish Fires

Much like sand, when you throw baking soda over the fire it will put the fire out. This will come in handy when you are trying to quickly put out a fire and get out of dodge when there is a threat nearby.

6. Relief for Sunburns


This method will not keep your skin from blistering, but by applying a paste of water and baking soda to the sore areas, the mixture will soothe your pain. It is recommended that you only use your precious baking soda on severe sunburns because you do not want to use it all up on something so minor.

7. Check Soil Acidity for your Vegetable Garden

soil check

In all honesty, you should have some way to start growing your own food (if you have not started already), and baking soda can be a great help for your garden. If you mix ¼ cup baking soda with two cups of water and add one cup of soil, you will see the water bubble if the soil is acidic enough for a garden.

8. Poison Ivy Relief

Okay, so poison ivy is mostly just an inconvenience. While this is true, there are some people who are highly allergic to it, and others who will have to care for infants, so having poison ivy relief can be extremely convenient. The soda helps to dry out the poisonous oils when a soda paste is applied to affected areas of the skin.

9. Melt Ice

If you live and plan to stay in the south, this might not mean much to you, but the northern hemisphere tends to get plenty of freezes in the winter months. The scavenging for food, you might have to run up and down stairs. You can spread baking soda over an icy surface to quickly melt the ice for easier and safer transport of goods.

10. Keep Animals out of your Garden

If you sprinkle a thick circle of baking soda around your garden, you will be able to keep rodents, deer and other animals away from your much needed food source.

11. Jelly Fish Stings

If you are caught in or around the ocean, you may end up getting stung by jelly fish. While urine is a great way to soothe jelly fish stings, you may be more inclined to put a baking soda paste on the affected area than you are to having your child or spouse spray you down.

12. Diaper Rash Relief

Not everyone has children, I get it… BUT for someone who does, this is something to keep in mind. Mixing a thick baking soda paste and applying it to a diaper rash can soothe almost any diaper rash.

13. Relieve Heartburn

Simply mix a tablespoon (approximate measures are fine) of baking soda with a glass of water, drink it down and you have given yourself the equal to a tablet of other fizzy heartburn relief medications.

14. Repels Household Bugs

Not everyone can live comfortably with cockroaches and ants, so this is something that you should keep in mind. If you sprinkle a thick layer of baking soda around a room, these bothersome bugs should keep away.

15. Removes Sweat Stains

sweat stains

Okay, so you don’t have a washing machine, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t try to keep clean. If you scrub the soiled area with baking soda, you will notice that the stain has either reduced or gone completely away.

16. Removes Oil and Grease Stains

Again, this is trivial in a SHTF scenario, but it is something to keep in mind if you happen to meet your dream guy or gal and plan a scavenging date. Keeping clean is actually more important that most people would like to believe.

17. Exfoliates Skin


You can use a baking soda paste to remove dry skin. Some people suffer from eczema or psoriasis, and this could really come in useful for them.

18. Removes Insecticides

If there was not a nuclear war, you will likely be safe to eat fresh fruits and vegetables. If this is the case, rinsing them with water and baking soda will rid them of the insecticides and other poisons that could be harmful.

19. Brush Pet Teeth

Just like humans, pet teeth are important to keep healthy. If it is your dog, he may be helping you hunt. With bad teeth, your hunting pal could become an unwanted burden rather than a tool for survival.

20. Relieve Body Odor

In the off-chance that you do find some running water and do not have soap, you can use baking soda as a body wash. If you have it handy, use it! Just because society has crumbled does not mean that you can throw away all forms of hygiene.

21. Cleans and Protects Hair

Again, hygiene is still kind of important. If you use baking soda as a shampoo, you will reduce grime and build-up while protecting your hair from unnecessary breakage.

22. Sweeten Tomatoes

When growing your vegetable garden, you can sprinkle baking soda on the top soil every few days. If you do this, your tomatoes will be sweeter and juicier.

23. Stuffy Noses

A stuffy nose can actually lead to some very hard times. Baking soda can be used to help relieve stuffy noses in the off-chance that you find or have a battery-operated vaporizer handy.

24. Remove Gassy Substances from Beans

Gas cramps suck! That’s all that can be said about that. If you are caught in a shoot-out, running from a threat or worse you do not want to be doubled over with stomach pains. Sprinkle some baking soda in that bean mixture, and you should be good to go.

25. Deodorize Pet Hair

You will likely be sleeping and eating with your pets. If you do not want that un-Godly pet smell, you can sprinkle some baking soda on their fur to rid it of odor.

26. No Weeds

When you finally settle into a new place, you will probably want to keep the weeds away for your much needed garden. Sprinkling baking soda on the area can help keep them from growing.

27. Repel Rain on your Windshield

If your wipers are bad and you have fuel in your care, you can sprinkle baking soda on your windshield to help keep the raindrops from forming and distorting your view.

As you can see, there are many uses for baking soda. If you are in a SHTF situation, you will want to conserve your supply, but that does not mean that you completely ignore cleanliness and hygiene. In this situation, doctors will be few and far between, so you will have to keep yourself healthy. Being dirty and unkempt can hinder your efforts.

How to Cure Poison Ivy

Poison ivy, and its pestilent cousins poison oak and poison sumac, can give you a wretched rash if come into contact with it. If you’ve suffered the unfortunate event of running into a poison ivy plant, try these methods for getting rid of the rash that accompanies it.

how to cure poison ivy

Toxicodendron radicans, commonly known as poison ivy (older synonyms are Rhus toxicodendron and Rhus radicans),[1] is a poisonous North American and Asian flowering plant that is well known for causing an itching, irritating, and sometimes painful rash in most people who touch it, caused by urushiol, a clear liquid compound in the sap of the plant. [2] It is variable in its appearance and habit, and despite its common name it is not a true ivy (Hedera). T. radicans is commonly eaten by many animals and the seeds are consumed by birds,[3] but is most often thought of as a weed.


Method 1 of 2: Treating Immediately


1) Rinse your skin. If you are outdoors when the poison ivy strikes, head for a stream or the beach for some water. Rinse the area that came in contact with cold water, being careful not to touch it too much with your hands or other parts of your body. Use the coldest water you are able to find as it will help to close up the pores in your skin, whereas hot water opens them and allows more of the toxic oil in.

  • If you encounter poison ivy near the beach, run to the water and use some wet sand to scrub at the area where the rash appeared. Then soak the rash in cold seawater.[1]
  • Avoid showering your whole body to rinse the rash, as you may worsen your exposure by spreading the rash to other parts of your body.


2) Dab on some rubbing alcohol. Pour a bit of rubbing alcohol onto a cotton pad and smear it over the affected area. Drowning out the skin with the rubbing alcohol may stop the spread of the poison, and prevent the rash from becoming even worse in the future. Do this as soon as you are able in order to prevent the rash from growing.


3) Wash off with dish soap. The toxins from the poison ivy plant are an oil, and therefore won’t be able to be removed completely with just water. Use a dish soap that advertises breaking up oil to wash the affected area. The dish soap should help to minimize the spread of the poison and limit the rash.


4) Put on an ice pack. Closing off your pores will keep your skin from absorbing the toxic oils. Hold a cold compress or an ice pack to the rash to constrict the pores. Doing this will also feel soothing on the blistered skin.


5) Remove any clothes that came in contact with the poison. If your clothes are covered in the oil from the plant, touching them later could spread the rash to other parts of your body. Remove any clothes near the area and wash them immediately, separate from any other laundry.


6) Crush up some jewelweed. If you are outdoors, look for jewelweed – a plant that often grows near poison ivy and is a natural cure for the toxins. It can be recognized as a low growing leafy bush with yellow and orange bell shaped flowers. Crush up some of the weeds to form a paste, and then smear them across the rash. Leave the paste for as long as you can, replacing with a paste of fresh jewelweed when it becomes dried out.


Method 2 of 2: Treating at Home After Exposure

Kitchen cupboard remedies

1) Make a paste of baking soda.
 This common household item will work to draw out the poisons in the skin and sooth the rash once it has already formed. Mix baking soda with a bit of water to form a paste, and then dab it onto the rash. Let it set until it dries out, and then rinse off with cool water. This process can be repeated several times daily until the rash disappears.


2) Wash with vinegar. Vinegar works many wonders, including helping to heal a poison ivy rash. Use regular or apple cider vinegar and pour it over the area. Let it sit on the rash until it evaporates. You can also pour some onto a cotton ball and dab it onto the rash for a more specific location.


3) Put on some cold coffee.
 Brew up a cup of regular coffee and let it cool or place it in the refrigerator. Pour it onto the rash or use a cotton pad to dab it on. Coffee contains an acid that works as an anti-inflammatory, which soothes the rash and brings down any swelling and redness.


4) Take an oatmeal bath.
 Oatmeal has long been used as a skin-soothing agent, and can be added to a bath to create a relaxing soak. Buy an oatmeal bath product or grind a cup of oatmeal in your blender and add it to a bath full of warm water. Soak in the mixture for 20 minutes to remove the itch of the rash.


5) Take a tea bath. Fill a hot bath with 6-8 bags of black tea. Black tea contains tannic acid, an anti-inflammatory that can help soothe a poison ivy rash. Soak in the tea for 20 or more minutes for the best results.


6) Use dish detergent, then oats. Wash the infected area with Dawn Dish detergent or any other brand that breaks up oils. Rinse the area with a lukewarm water, followed by cool water, to close up the pores. Apply witch hazel solution after it dries. Then, take a knee high sock or stocking and put some oatmeal inside it, tying it shut. Heat a small amount of water for about 1 minute. Insert the oat-filled knee high, end down into the hot water. When this has soaked a couple of minutes, squeeze out and dab onto affected areas. This will work as a drying agent. This method works well.

Best Trades To Know When The SHTF

When a catastrophic event occurs, most people focus on day-to-day survival.

However, it is just as important to think about the trades and skills needed to survive long term.

A good trade is one that is valuable to you and those around you.

It should also be easily tradable for goods or services critical to survive.

When the time comes to rebuild and refocus on the future, prepare yourself by learning one of these trades.

Medical training

Having any level of medical knowledge is one of the greatest strengths for a survivalist to possess.

One of the main benefits of medical training is that it’s immediately valuable.

During a catastrophic event there will be limited access to proper medical care.

Household product manufacturing

Knowing how to make any type of cleaning tool like soap or laundry detergent is valuable.

As a modern day staple in first-world countries, soap is one of the best tools to fight off infection.

Poor human hygiene causes diarrheal and respiratory illnesses that easily spread in unclean environments.

If an infection spreads among your fellow survivors, a bar of soap is your best bet to stop it from getting worse.


When it comes to rebuilding, the help and expertise of carpenters will be highly sought after.

Carpenters can help produce new homes and the furnishings that go in them.

Carpenters are skilled at woodworking and molding items to meet custom designs.

It’s also important for those pursuing carpentry as a trade to know how to do it with old-fashioned tools.

Gardening, seed production

After everything has been scavenged for food ten times over, it’s important to know how to produce fruits and vegetables on your own.

Fresh produce isn’t just desirable because of its health benefits, but it may be the only food option.

More important than gardening, seed production will be in huge demand.

Learning how to produce, grow and store seeds will be highly valuable.

Gunsmithing and ammunition production

You can pretty much count on the fact that people are going to need guns.

With the gun manufacturing industry at a halt, there will be a huge demand for gun repairs and homemade ammunition.
