Single Use Salve Packs for Camping

Silver Post Medal for All Time! 433 Posts

If you are camping and going to be hiking or even just traveling, these will come in handy. Place a straw over the opening of the ointment and squeeze a small amount of it, about one quarter of an inch. Hold the end of your straw with your pliers, be sure a small part of the straw is sticking out. Take a lighter and melt the end and quickly pinch the melted end with the pliers to seal it shut .Then turn the straw around and find the point where the oinment went up in the straw.


Pinch past that with the pliers and cut off excess. Leave a small piece of straw sticking out to seal off with your lighter.

You can also put toothpaste, aloe gel and sanitizers in them. I thought this was a great idea. So I tried a few and they are really durable.

Brilliant! Though I might not go camping, I could see this same idea used to hold a set of tiny screws that might get lost, or hold matches to keep them dry, or any number of things that it'd keep safe and protected, in a compact little package that could be taped to something else. It'd be easy to write what was inside it, as well. Might even be a nifty way to hold emergency meds, as long as you have a way to open it fast. Love this idea!
