As you will see, “Eating clean doesn’t mean Starving to Death”.
It’s 411 to your 911 situations. Getting stuck without a can opener is no problem when you know this little life hack survival trick. In minutes you can be enjoying your ravioli or tuna sandwich. It’s no joke when you are hungry and you forgot to put a can opener in your gear.
First video shows you how to open the can with a spoon. I tried this and it works. You might want to wear a pair of garden gloves to cushion your hand. Be very careful of sharp edges. Quarter way through the can I was really missing my P38 opener….
Remember to stay calm in all emergency situations so you can think rationally. Make sure you have an emergency bag in your home and all vehicles. Check out our list of what you need in case of a disaster.
You don’t want to be caught by surprise in a disaster. Make sure you have at least the basic items. Flashlight, Battery-powered or hand-crank radio (NOAA Weather Radio, if possible), Extra batteries, First aid kit, Medications (7-day supply), Multi-purpose tool
Sanitation and personal hygiene items, Copies of personal documents (medication list and pertinent medical information, proof of address, deed/lease to home, passports, birth certificates, insurance policies), Cell phone with chargers, Family and emergency contact information and good old Extra cash. Not your ATM or credit cards the machines may not be working.
Second video shows you how to open a can on the concrete. For me being a woman and older this was easier than the spoon trick.
It is always better to be prepared ahead of time.
Today we showed you two ways to open a can of food in case you can’t find your “John Wayne”. I always keep a “John Wayne”, P38 (military can opener) on my key ring, in the glove box of my car and a few in my survival gear. You do not want to starve while you wait out the disaster.
