Basics: Hygiene

OK, so the power is out and won't be coming back anytime soon. There's no city water, no working sewer system, and no stores to shop. Several months have passed since everything went medieval, and it seems the worst of the chaos is past. Now what?

How will you take care of your personal needs? How will you wash your clothes? What will you do for the basics we take for granted; soap, toothpaste, toothbrushes, shampoo, toilet paper, those mysterious "feminine" products?

If you have a septic system, what happens when it needs to be pumped out? Do you know how to set up an outhouse that won't pollute your well? Can you even get water out of your well with no electricity?

We beat the AR vs AK debate to death, and go on at great length about which is the best survival knife, but what about the less glamorous needs of basic hygiene? Do you have a plan?

You should look at NATURALLY COZY - Home
they have great products.. i know that you can make your own, and i have tried... :)
the pads and liners that naturallycozy sales are by far better than mine and they will last forever. LOL

there are also great websites on how to make your own soap, and many other useful things i have found! BTW....what could replace toilet paper? if you can't wipe WELL with something, you are screwed. what about corncobs? haha!
