    This sounds like a job for bleach, a few drops mixed in some moisturiser/hand cream could save the day.

    Lmfao point taken off grid, how about a compromise? You can piss on your own wounds and I'll let mine bleed and clot naturally. We'll compare notes on how we get on.....definitely scope there for an experiment.

    Yes although I'm the bleach advocate not a piss advocate, it seems I've drawn the short straw:whistle:

    Been reading about washing hands with sand if no water is available.. Not many households have a fire bucket these days but maybe worth keeping a small amount of sand in a shed or wherever you store things.? Got this from the book "the sas survival handbook" by john wiseman..:army-biggrin:

    Don't take everything in those books as read, only a percentage of that book came from him, the rest is just editorial padding. His urban survival book is even worse. Some chapters are just plain bollocks and he would be the first to admit it.

    Ok ystranc.. Cheers mate.. Thats the trouble with old books that one was from the 80s? So knowledge has moved up a bit since then.. It didnt even state whether the author ment sharp sand as that would contain the most grit.for hand washing.. Oh well its all trial and error mate..

    the type of sand for hand washing dosent matter a lot I don't think, I've used it in the past, and beach sand works just as well as builders sand.

    Beach sand sounds good lone wolf.. Contains shells and rock that has been ground down over the years.. Nice and gritty i should imagine. Good tip there, thanks. Easy enough to fill.a small container with and keep in a shed or wherever its not taking up room.. Then it will be saving water if a quick clean is needed..:army-biggrin:

    I've been re reading some of my old survival books, there are mistakes in a lot of them...it makes me wonder if they were included on purpose as some kind of test. You know the kind of thing, did you spot the deliberate mistake?

    time moves on, things are improved on, one thing that time ago was thought the best way to build a shelter or tan a hide is found to be not the right way or it can be simplified or made better.

    Yes compare those old books with todays and theres no doubt a lot of differences.. not that Ive read a recent day and age survival book but i can imagine theres quite a few upgrades to old teqniques,, still knowledge is knowledge and we can blend some of the old ways into todays ideas.. Like hybrids or pick and mix... Its still intriguing to learn.. And still better to know than not know:)
