 Tips for hurricane Survival

1.       Charge your Laptops and keep turned off or sleep and if your phone battery starts to die, plug it into a laptop via charger cord, it will charge your phone off its battery! Also, use the power savings button on phone and reduce screen brightness to conserve power.

3.       Iced tea UNSWEETENED is just like water and there is still lots on shelves at some stores as people over look! Tea is great for washing bacteria of hands without soap and it’s also anti-inflammatory for cuts!

4.       Lemons don’t need refrigeration and are great for cleaning and washing off bacteria. Avoid soap bubbles and residue.

5.       Empty 1-gallon jugs fill up with tap water or buy 1-gallon water jugs or Tea jugs and freeze… cluster all your food together and push to the back of the fridge and into bins which act like coolers when the power goes out put frozen jugs in bins and front by the door and around to serve as a cold barrier and as they melt drinking and washing water! Dual use!! If you can find dry ice it’s great for the freezer!
